I hope all is going well so far this school year! The students are really settling in to the expectations of the classroom and the routine that we have put into place. Overall, the students have been doing a really great job this year. Algebra In algebra we are finishing up our first unit of study. We will have a review day on Monday October 3rd with our unit test being on Tuesday October 4th. The sections students should review over the weekend are 1-1 through 1-7 and sections 9-1 and 9-2. We will then start our new unit of study on equations which is chapter 2 in our algebra textbook.
Math 8 This year we jumped head first into our algebra unit which we usually start in December. So far the students have learned how to combine like terms and evaluate expressions. In the next two weeks we will be learning how to multiply two expressions together that include numbers and variables. Students will learn three different ways to multiply expressions so they can choose the one that works best for their learning style. At the end of the next lesson the students will be completing a project to show what they learned about different expressions.
