Making Connections in Math
Our next two units involve skills from all of our algebra units throughout the year. We are currently working in our systems of linear equations unit. Students will use their knowledge of linear equations from trimester one to find solutions of systems by graphing. They will continue to work on their equation solving skills from trimester two as they use algebra to solve systems by substitution and elimination. All students have an opportunity to improve the grade in the standard, “Solves equations and analyzes expressions that involve grouping symbols.”
Our last unit will take a look at exponential functions. This will be our first in depth look at nonlinear functions. Students will be encouraged to make comparisons between the properties of linear and nonlinear functions. During this unit students will create two projects and share them with the class. The choices include writing a children’s story, game, and trading cards.
After school help continues to be available on Mondays and Wednesdays.
