September10

This week we will start Unit 3 “Geometric Applications of Exponents”! I don’t know about you but I’m ready for the Pythagorean Theorem and just something a little different. Keep in mind we will have to apply what we learned previously to Unit 3.

Monday 9/10:

Learning Target: I can determine solutions to linear equations as one, none, or infinite.

After completing the warmup on multistep equations, students were given an opportunity to receive extra credit towards their tests from Friday. If you were absent today you be able to complete this assignment in class only when you return.

Tests will be returned Wednesday.

How will I be assessed: No homework. Students submitted the 15 question extra credit assignment as they left class.

Tuesday 9/11:

Learning Target: I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to determine the length of any missing side in a right triangle.

Students learned how to use the Pythagorean Theorem when finding missing sides of right triangles. The following videos explain it all:

 

 

How will I be assessed:

Math 8: Finish Multi-Step equation packet with word problems. Show all steps!

Adv M8: Finish Multi-Step equation packet. Show all steps!

Wednesday 9/12:

Learning Target: I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real-world situations.

We discussed how the Pythagorean Theorem can be used in practical real-world situations.

This video demonstrates some situations:
