This week in math, we took the chapter 5 test. Then we started chapter 6 by learning about percents, how to convert percents to fractions and decimals (and vice versa), and how to estimate percents. There will be an open-notes quiz over sections 6.1 – 6.3 next Tuesday, March 11. The tentative date for the chapter 6 test is Wednesday, March 19. We will also have a notebook quiz on Thursday, March 20. Students will have time in class to make sure their notebooks are organized.
This week in math, we learned how to solve proportions using cross products. We also learned how to convert customary measurements, such as converting miles to feet or cups to fluid ounces. We made vocabulary flashcards and completed a study guide on Thursday. On Friday, we continued to review for the test. The chapter 5 test is on Monday, March 3. It will be the last math grade of the 2nd trimester.
This week in math, we learned how to graph linear functions. We also completed a study guide, made vocabulary flashcards, and played a game called Function Machine. Students took the test on Thursday, but since we did not have rotations today, tests will be returned on Tuesday. The grades are already in PowerSchool. Next week, we will start another short chapter. The tentative test date for the chapter 5 test is Thursday, February 27.
This week in math, we started chapter 4. We learned about the coordinate plane, including the x-axis, y-axis, origin, quadrants, and ordered pairs. We then learned about tables, graphs, and how to model real-life situations on a graph. We also had an introduction to functions, including how to find the input/output and how to graph them. The chapter 4 test will be next Thursday, 2/13. A study guide will be coming home on Tuesday.
This week, we wrapped up chapter 3 by learning how to solve one-step equations containing fractions. We took a notebook quiz on Wednesday. The quizzes were returned on Thursday, and we spent time in class cleaning out our binders. We completed a study guide for the test over sections 3.7 – 3.12. Due to the unexpected day off on Friday, the test has been moved to Monday. We will also complete the NWEA math test next week during math class.
