Systems Quiz 1 Learning Targets

Quiz is on May 1

Given a set of data (inputs and outputs or x and y values), I can determine if it is a function.
I can list (identify) the domain and range of values.
Given an equation with x and y variables, I can write the equation in standard form and slope-intercept form and Graph the equation.
I can write equations and solve for given problem situations.
I can recognize parallel and perpendicular lines by solving for y (slope-intercept form) and analyzing their slopes.
I can write equations for lines that are parallel to and perpendicular to a given line.

 

Algebra Thursday and Friday

Students took notes for today and tomorrow.  Students are to complete worksheet 4.2B, BOTH sides AND Systems textbook unit 1.2 AND Ace from Chapter 1, numbers 5-20.  ALL work is due Monday.

Quest revisions for an 80% grade change must be completely correct and justified showing all work by Friday, May 4.  After that, revisions will only be accepted for a 70%.

Systems quiz 1 will be on Tuesday,  May 1.

Algebra Wednesday

Students worked in the new Systems book, unit 1.1 and ACE, problems 1-3, due Thursday.

Quiz on new work on Tuesday, May 1.  Learning Targets to follow.

Quest grades have been posted.  In order to earn an 80% revision grade, revisions must be completely done and correct (and handed in) by Friday, May 4.  After that date, revisions will only  be accepted for a 70%.

Algebra

Students worked in Holt unit 1.6.  Both sides are due on Wednesday.

Algebra Monday

Students started work with function graphs, tables and equations.  Unit 1.1 and ACE of Function Junction due Tuesday.

Algebra Wednesday through Friday

Students reviewed solving problems with shadows and mirrors using proportions (similar triangles).  Students practiced by drawing and solving situations in section 4.4 and ACE Chapter 4 questions 21 and 22.

Mathxl 1 and 2 due Thursday morning at 8 am.

Quest on Friday.

LT’s:

  • I can identify types of symmetry within diagrams:  reflection (including line of reflection), rotational (including angle of rotation) and lines of symmetry.
  • I can use reflections (across each axis or other line), rotations around a point of rotation and translations, given certain rules to draw new shapes.
  • I can develop rules for use on the coordinate plane for rotations, reflections and translations.
  • I can justify that rotations, reflections and translations result in congruent images with certain relationships to the original shapes (same side lengths, angle measures, parallel or perpendicular segments to image segments, etc).  (SLOPE and DISTANCE or PYTHAGOREAN theorem.)
  • Given the center of rotation, I can rotate the original shape to create an image with 90 degrees and 180 degrees of rotation.
  • I can use relationships between parallel lines, transversals and “angle sums” (for example, the sum of the measures of the angles in all triangles is 180 degrees) to find the values of missing angle measures.

Algebra Tuesday

We reviewed the work on transformations.  Today we are going to work with similar shapes and dilations (scale factor).  Due Wednesday:  unit 4.2 and ACE Chapter 4, number 1.  For the new shape in ace, the dilation of 2 becomes the scale factor, so all coordinates are simply multiplied by 2 to create the new shape.

Mathxl 1 and 2 of BPW are due Thursday morning.

QUEST moved to Friday due to forecasting.

Algebra Friday

We reviewed the proofs from unit 3.5 thoroughly.   Students then practiced this reasoning by working ACE from Chapter 3, numbers 11-15, due Tuesday.

Quest on Thursday.  Mathxl 1 and 2 due Thursday morning.

Algebra Thursday

Students applied knowledge of parallel lines and transversals, along with angle sums of polygons to solve for missing angle measures in unit 3.5.  Due Friday:  unit 3.5.

Algebra Wednesday

Students continued work from yesterday.  Unit 3.4 and ACE problems are due Thursday.
