During the last week of October we moved on to Unit 3: Writing Linear Equations. This unit has much overlap from Unit 2 as it revolves around all the same concepts. We will be having our first quiz on Thursday, November 1st. This quiz covers writing equations in slope-intercept form and point-slope form (sections 5.1-5.3). Beginning the week of Nov. 5th we will begin covering arithmetic sequences, standard form, and writing equations of parallel/perpendicular lines and applications. This quiz will be approximately Nov. 13th (sections 5.4-5.5). The unit test is scheduled for November 16th.
After we have finished writing linear equations, we will do a mini unit on linear regression. This unit covers concepts of statistics such as correlation coefficients, residuals, and impact of outliers. As mentioned, it is a short unit and we will conclude by taking an assessment the first week of December.
Students always receive a study guide or outline of concepts that are found on their assessments. The answer keys are also posted on Google Classroom. Please help motivate them to complete these reviews and use them in their preparation for assessments. Notes for each day are also posted to prevent students from getting behind when absent. If a child has any questions or confusion they can send me a message via Google Classroom.
- Just a reminder, math club is every Monday. I understand that other clubs/activities sometimes occur on Mondays so weekly attendance is not required.
- Continental math will begin this month. This year we are doing Continental Math during the students Math Lab periods.
- We will also begin prepping for the Catholic High School Entrance Exam (HSPT) during Math Lab.
