Just three weeks to go? Yes, believe it! As exciting as this sounds remember to keep up with your assignments. We will begin the week with Part 2 of the Unit 1 test and then prepare for the final which will be next week.

Monday 5/7: Review Unit 2 in preparation for upcoming final.

The end of the year is definitely here! There are so many things going on. Students who were on the band trip will need to make up the test (and some work) from last week. Be aware that everyone will be doing a performance task this week which will also count as a test grade. There are many opportunities, are you taking them?

Monday 4/30:

Learning Target: I can use angle relationships to find missing angle measures.

Students started a Performance Task based on angle relationships. This will count as a test grade and will be completed in class only. Also, any students who did not complete the Unit 1 test finished these today.

Advanced – City Project Task

Math 8 – Marietta Pizza Task

Tuesday 5/1:

Learning Target: I can use angle relationships to find missing angle measures.

Students continued to work on performance task that will count as a test grade.

Wednesday 5/2:

Learning Target: I can use angle relationships to find missing angle measures.

Students worked on study guides in preparation for Thursday’s Part B of the Unit 1 Test

How will I be assessed: Performance Tasks were submitted and the following study guide was distributed: Unit 1 Study Guide P2-2am2u2i

Thursday 5/3:

Learning Target: I can use angle relationships to find missing angle measures.

Students took Part B of the Unit 1 test. They also had an opportunity to complete performance tasks.

We are now right at the 4 1/2 week mark! Progress Report grades will be posted Tuesday (Remember: this is totally online). The Unit 1 Test P1 will be given Wednesday. Afterwards we’ll prepare for Part 2.

Monday 4/23:

Learning Target: I can use angle relationships to find missing angle measures.

Students had the full period to work on two practice sheets which cover missing angles with triangles and parallel lines.

How will I be assessed: Finish the Angle Relationships Practice sheets distributed in class today here: Angle Relationships 2 page-1u3399n and don’t forget about the Unit 1 Test P1 on Wednesday. We’ll prepare for this tomorrow by returning the quiz and answering any questions on Similar Figures and Transformations.

Tuesday 4/24:

Learning Target: I can prepare and show mastery of transformations and similar figures for the test tomorrow.

A study guide was distributed and quizzes were returned/corrected. Look over this material for the Unit 1 Test, P1, tomorrow.

One more day of testing! Makes you appreciate just a normal day doesn’t it! Well, we are almost to that point. Keep in mind we will have a quiz on Transformations and Similar figures on Friday and a Unit test afterwards. Some students believe we are going to sit around and do nothing. Trust me, there is much to do!

Monday 4/16:

Learning Target: I can use similar figures to solve real-world situations.

Students refreshed their memories of using similar triangles to find missing measurements.

This is our week! We have prepared, prepared more and are certainly prepared! Tuesday it starts……ELA. The math section will be Thursday. Be sure to ask any questions you may have as we review! Be sure to go back to any videos posted on the blog from the past. Remember, every new section covered throughout the year has a video tutorial to help!

Monday 4/9:

Learning Target: I can prepare for the Milestone by showing mastery of Unit 6 material.

We corrected the Unit 5 study guide (distributed Friday before Spring Break). Study guides for Unit 6 were distributed.

How will I be assessed: Finish the Unit 6 Study Guide

Tuesday 4/10:

Learning Target: I can prepare for the Milestone by showing mastery of Unit 7 material.

The Unit 6 study guide was corrected in class today. Afterwards, students worked on Unit 7 (our last!).

Learning Target: I can prepare for the Milestone by showing mastery of all Units.

I would like to first say GREAT JOB with taking the Milestone today! Many of you stated it was EASY! That’s what I like to hear!

I decided to make Crazy Triangles 3 an extra credit assignment and distributed it in class today since all of you didn’t do it from the blog yesterday.

Review for the Milestone is now upon us! We will review one unit per day this week starting with (you guessed it) Unit 1 – Transformations, Congruence and Similarity. This should be easy since we actually just covered the material. Anything we distribute and cover is extremely important. Grades are going to be heavily based on the work done in class.

Monday 3/26:

Learning Target: I can prepare for the Milestone by showing mastery of Unit 1 material.

Students were given the study guide that would normally be given for the Unit 1 test. This was reviewed in class and will help with the Milestone. In addition, a take home quiz was given “Figuring Dilations.”

Learning Target: I can prepare for the Milestone by showing Mastery of Unit 3 material.

We reviewed Unit 2 again during the beginning of class and went straight to Unit 3. This unit deals mainly with the volume of cylinders, cones and spheres as well as using the Pythagorean Theorem in real-world situations. Use these study guides to your advantage!

We have officially started the 4th quarter! Remember, we are learning something new each and every day. If you are absent PLEASE visit the blog and make up your work AND learn the material through the tutorials.

Monday 3/19

Learning Target: I can dilate a figure on the coordinate plane.

Students were able to determine whether a transformation is a dilation and learned how to dilate figures according to a given scale factor. The following PowerPoint was used Dilations PP with guided notes Dilations Guided Notesand may help. The following video may also help when trying to figure out how to dilate a figure on the coordinate plane:

Learning Target: I can find unknown angles in triangles.

Great job with the homework from yesterday! Now we are finding measures of exterior angles by using the Exterior Angle Theorem. You all said this is really easy. Guess what? It is!

Learning Target: I can identify parallel and perpendicular lines and the angles formed by a transversal.

We moved ahead and covered the angle relationships formed when parallel lines are cut by a transversal. The following Power Point was viewed: Parallel-Lines-Transversals-pvo43g

Learning Target: I can use indirect measurement and similar triangles to find unknown measures.

We applied our knowledge of using proportions with similar figures to finding missing values in real world situations. The following videos show how it’s done!

How will I be assessed: Finish the “Similar Triangles & Indirect Measurement” Practice Sheet

We are finally through Unit 7! This week we will begin Unit 1. I know, it seems backwards. However, we did not start the year with this Unit. Also, the quarter ends Wednesday.

Monday 3/12:

We are nearing the end of Unit 7! After we finish solving real world situations using systems there will be a two part which will take place Thursday and Friday.

Monday 3/5:

Learning Target: I can use system of equations to solve real-world situations.

We used this PowerPoint to help present word problems: Systems Word Problems PP 2018-2amahzt . Students set up and solved numerous real-world situations using either substitution or elimination.

Learning Target: I can use system of equations to solve real-world situations.

We continued with word problems by viewing the video tutorials posted from Monday. Students went along with the video. We also completed a “Ticket In the Door.” This is a class grade to assess progress with systems.

Absent Students: Do this Ticket in the Door for a Class Grade: systems Ticket In-sg1xek. On the back of ticket in the door, watch the videos from the post on Monday and do those problems.

Wednesday 3/7:

Learning Target: I can solve system of equations through graphing, substitution and elimination.

Students analyzed graphs which displayed system of equations and made deductions when questioned. Quizzes on all 3 methods were returned and corrected. Study guides for the test tomorrow and Friday were distributed.

How will I be assessed: Unit 7 Test Part 1 is tomorrow. This will cover word problems only. Use the PowerPoint from Tuesday’s blog to help as well as the study guide here: Systems Study Guide-28kgnrm
