Then our lesson (pdf) was to look once again at some of our application problems and make sure we understand the idea of slope/rate of change, and then try to apply that to more abstract equations.
Your homework for Monday is:
- Check the portal
for the results of your assessment, fill out your student checklist
with your results, and make a plan for retake (if necessary),
including making an appointment.
- If you haven't read Fisch Food for Thought (Part 2), please take 5 minutes and read it. Thanks.
- Watch and complete the Graphing Linear Equations Using Slope-Intercept Form video. (You know what to do, and what to write down, right?)
- On your personal Algebra Reflective Blog, create a new post titled "Slope". In this post, tell me everything you know about slope, and everything you think someone else who was taking Algebra needs to know about slope. (Hint: this is going to be more than one sentence. A lot more. It might even include some diagrams/pictures.) This should be completed before you go to bed on Monday night (but I would highly recommend you complete it this weekend.) Make this good, the world is reading and you want to make a good impression.
