After that, many of you finished your Chapter 3 test. Those that were already done spent the rest of the period doing more work with Marblesides (see Monday's post) or working to catch-up in MATHia X.
Speaking of MATHia, are you on pace to finish the Functions & Linear Models module by November 11th? Since today is a minimum day it's a perfect opportunity to spend some extra time with MATHia X at home if you're a bit behind. You should have 14 or more workspaces complete by tomorrow.
We worked through an awesome Desmos Marbleslides activity today to experiment with slopes and intercepts of linear equations. If you'd like to spend a bit more time on the challenge problems tonight, feel free to jump right in at student.desmos.com.
Period 1: FPJJ9
Period 2: 5EAX5
Period 6: E787W
Also, a reminder that we'll be taking our Chapter 3 test on Wednesday. Happy studying!
Tonight's homework focuses on the second two skills.
If you need some help on tonight's homework, check out the examples on pages 198 and 199 and the videos above! They'll show you exactly what to do with the info you have to determine the y-intercept and the slope.
Parents: Have your child explain to you the process to find the equation of a line 1) given the slope and a point, and 2) given only two points. If they can explain their strategy in their own words, you know they're ready for their homework.
We prepped for tomorrow's Common Assessment #2 today with a rather involved warm-up, then spent the rest of the class period investigating the rate of change from an equation with an awesome Desmos activity!
If you didn't finish the activity in class today, be sure to do so tonight at home. Head to student.desmos.com, then type in your class code.
