Week of January 8

December 30th, 2017 by

On Thursday, there will be a unit test over linear equations. It will be the last test for this quarter. It will cover proportional relationships, non-proportional relationships, constant of proportionality, unit rate, slope, y-intercept, slope-intercept form, graphing lines, and writing linear equations from graphs, tables, and scenarios. Use the links pages in the following folders of our Schoology course to review: “Proportional Relationships,” “Non-Proportional Relationships,” and “Writing Linear Equations.” IXL and this website also offer opportunities to review for the test.


Monday, January 8

School closed due to inclement weather…plans moved to Tuesday

Common Core Standards and Extended Standards
8.EE.6  Understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations.
 Create and solve ratios.
 Represent proportional relationships.
 Use ratios to solve real-world problems.
 Ratios and proportional relationships can be used to determine unknown quantities.
8.F.4    Use functions to model relationships between quantities.
 Specific input will yield specific output.
 Compare/contrast two different input/output relationships.
 Equations of linear and non-linear functions
 Construct a linear graph using a table or equation.
 Construct a linear graph as described verbally.

Student Objectives
Given a graphed line, an input/output table, or two ordered pairs, I can use a coordinate graph to determine slope.
I can classify positive, negative, zero, and undefined slopes.
I can write a linear equation to represent a graph, an input-output table, or a written scenario.

Bellwork
Students will complete Math Minute 60.
