It has been a pleasure getting to know your children these past couple of weeks and we have gotten off to a great start for the year! We spent the first couple of weeks reviewing expectations/procedures and reviewing over the material from the summer packet. Below you can find a list of concepts that will be studied during the month of September.
- Solving equations in one variable, translating verbal phrases into expressions and equations, understanding the real number system, applications of percents, ratios and proportions. The first quiz will be 9/10.
- Inequalities, translating verbal phrases into inequalities, compound inequalities, and absolute value functions. Coinciding textbook lessons are 6.3-6.5. We will take a cumulative test on all equation and inequality concepts on approximately 9/17.
- Graphing linear functions. We will spend almost four weeks on this unit. Material covered include: graphing equations using a table, slope-intercept form, point-slope form, and intercepts. Also rate of change, slope, parallel/perpendicular lines, key features of a graph, and understanding function notation. Textbook lessons include 4.2-4.7 and 5.3.
Students can always check Google Classroom for homework assignments and any study resources that will be posted around quizzes/tests. If at any time a student feels that they need extra practice/review they may schedule a time to meet with me and I would be happy to help.
