Today we began with this enchanting opener (pdf).

We finished talking about Friday's lesson by looking at and interpreting the last 3 graphs, and then had a Carnegie Hall Day (practice, practice, practice) where we spent a lot of time reviewing how to graph linear equations using a table of values, including talking about when solving for y might help us and the special cases of x = a constant and y = a constant. We also reviewed some previous topics, including distributive property, solving equations with variables on both sides, proportion and percent, and dimensional analysis (lesson, pdf).

Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Please finish the review worksheet we started in class.
  2. Prepare for the Graphing Linear Equations Using a Table of Values Assessment tomorrow. There are a variety of ways to do that including, but not limited to: review the online pre-assessment; review your notebook and/or the openers and lessons posted on the blog; review the video, work some practice problems in your textbook or that you find online. You can, of course, also get help from me, another math teacher, a teacher in the Study Center, a peer tutor in the Study Center, or a parent, sibling or friend. Do whatever works best for you, but make sure you're prepared. The expectation is that you should all be able to do very well on this assessment on Tuesday.

  3. If you haven't read it yet, please take five or so minutes and read the post I put up last night. Feel free to comment if you have any questions or comments to add.
