Monday, October 31, 2011

We began with this thrilling opener (pdf). Problems 1 through 3 are just like the assessment tomorrow. Problems 4 and 5 are related to Essential Learning #3 that we will assess over on Wednesday.

Then today's lesson (pdf) was briefly reviewing solving a system of equations by graphing, and then learning about solving a system of equations by substitution. We will talk more about the iPhone problem tomorrow.

Your homework for tonight is:
  1. Prepare for the Parallel and Perpendicular Lines 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.

  2. Complete the Essential Learning #3 Online Pre-Assessment on the Moodle.

  3. Review Friday's lesson/video (solving a system by graphing) and today's lesson (solving by substitution).

  4. I thought some of you might enjoy this:
