Algebra Periods 2, 6 Friday

We reviewed unit 2.3 and looked back in our notebooks (on  9/16) regarding unit rate and added an example.  Students continued practice of rates and rate tables by working on ACE Chapter 2: problems 5, 6, 7, 9 on pages 52 and 53.  If a student would like more practice for the quiz or more challenge, I recommend numbers 8 and 10 also.

Mathxl unit 2 due next Wednesday at 8am.

Quiz next Tuesday.  See Learning Targets in previous post.

Accel Algebra Friday

Mathxl unit 3 due next Friday.

Quiz 1 on Wednesday, 10/5.

Due Monday:  ACE starting on page 49: 3-12 and 14.

Students worked together to derive the distance formula from the Pythagorean Theorem.  We put notes in our notebooks about solving for missing sides of right triangles using the PT and about the distance formula.

Algebra Period 6 Thursday

Due Friday:

mathxl unit 1 due at 8 am.

Unit 2.2 was finished in class today and 2.3 was started.  I gave notes and clarified many parts of unit 2.3.  Unit 2.3 A and B (pages 48, 49) only.

Accelerated Algebra Thursday

Students took notes on the triangle rule and divisibility rules.  They explored a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem in unit 3.2. Students explained the proof with drawings, words and equations.  We completed A, B, D in class.  We then talked about unit 3.4 and students started work to complete the table on page 47. Due Friday:  mathxl units 1 and 2; 3.2 (work done in class) and 3.4 A and B only.

Pythagoras Quiz 1 Learning Targets

I know the perfect squares (square roots) throug 225 (15).

I can simplify radicals to simplest form.

I can estimate a radical to the hundredths place.

Given the area of a square, I can find the side length and label with the correct units.

Given the 3 side lengths, I can determine if a triangle can be formed and if it is a right triangle.

Given 2 side lengths of a right triangle, I can find the 3rd side length (either a leg or the hypotenuse).

I can find the distance between any two points on the coordinate plane.

Comparing and Scaling Quiz 1 Learning Targets

I can write and simplify a ratio, given a set of data.

I can write and solve a proportion (equivalent ratios) given a set of data.

I can use proportions to solve a problem situation.

I can find a unit rate given a set of data, and use the unit rate to solve a problem situation.

I can use ratios to compare sets of data (juice problem and pizza problem).

Accelerated Wednesday

Students worked in unit 3.1.  Unit 3.1 and the radical worksheet due Thursday.

Mathxl due Friday at 8 am

Algebra Periods 2, 5 Wednesday
