Friday 3/31

Today, for our first lesson with Class Craft in place (for all but period 6 that is), we finished our look at solving systems of linear equations by graphing with the last portion of Lesson 11.2.

Parents: Ask your child to explain what the graph of a solution with one solution, a graph with no solutions, and a graph with infinite solutions would look like. If they match the picture seen here, you know they've got it!

Next week we'll take a look at solving systems using a different method.

Homework: Systems of Linear Equations worksheet

Thursday 3/30

Today, we introduced Class Craft! I hope this will be a positive and fun addition to class, and we will get out first real feel of it during tomorrows lesson. Remember that tomorrow we have a straight periods 1-6 schedule!

Homework: MATHia Practice/Desmos Projects

Wednesday 3/29

Today we wrapped up the last portion of Lesson 11.1 in class with a quick review of the homework and then began the first portion of Lesson 11.2 to extend our understanding of solving systems of equations by graphing.

Homework: Student Assignments workbook 11.1

Tuesday 3/28

We dove into Chapter 11 today with an introduction to systems of equations in Lesson 11.1. We've got A LOT more to do with systems, but today was a good introduction for us.

Homework: Finish any unfinished classwork, then do textbook pages 602-606 (Problem 2). You can use Desmos instead of doing the table and graph by paper if you prefer.

Monday 3/27

We spent our first day back from break working in MATHia and on a new Desmos project.

Homework: MATHia practice

Wednesday 3/8

For those of us who were in class today, we had the Chapter 10 test. Those of you who were out on the trip we will make up the test tomorrow.

Tuesday 3/7

We finished out the chapter today with Lesson 10.4 where we investigated the slopes of parallel and perpendicular lines.

Instead of working through the textbook pages, we did a Desmos Activity that covered the same concepts. If you didn't finish it in class, please do so at home tonight. Head to and type in the corresponding class code.

Period 1: DT88S
Period 2: XTMUB
Period 6: 28UJP

If you were absent today, you're welcome to either do the 10.4 textbook pages, or the Desmos Activity instead. Just make sure you do one of them to prepare for tomorrow's test.

Homework: Student Assignments workbook 10.4

Monday 3/6

We took the Practice CAASPP Test today. This was a little introduction to the way you will be asked questions and what the expectations are on the test later in the year. tomorrow we will head into Chapter 10.4.

Homework: Mathia Practice

Module 7: Systems of Equations and the Desmos Project are both due this Friday, work on it on your own if you need to!

Thursday 3/2

We wrapped up Lesson 10.3 today using all the new concepts we've learned to find missing angle measures.

We have a practice CAASPP Test coming up on Monday, so you can all see the way questions will be asked on the new test for later in the year. Then we will finish Chapter 10 Next week with 10.4 and Take the Chapter 10 Test before break.

This Chapter is going by quickly. For those of you who have missed or will miss any class, make sure we are reviewing the very important key terms and their definitions and trying to do some work at home. Come to me with questions before school or during lunch if you need to.

Homework:  Student Assignments workbook 10.3

Wednesday 3/1

 We began our look at pairs of angles today with this Parallel Lines Cut by a Transversal activity. Here's a copy of a pdf version for those that don't have PowerPoint at home.

If you were absent today, you'll want to complete the activity linked above before doing your homework. You'll need this Math Is Fun website to learn the meanings of the following terms:

  • Transversal
  • Parallel lines
  • Vertical angles
  • Corresponding angles
  • Alternate interior angles
  • Alternate exterior angles
  • Same-side interior angles (consecutive interior angles)
  • Same-side exterior angles (consecutive exterior angles)

Homework: Textbook pages 550-551 (Problem 3)
