Quizzes and Tests

We have a quiz every WEDNESDAY covering the week's lessons and covering a previously taught standard to help students keep all their learning in the forefront.  These quizzes are on Illuminate.


Current Unit
Say It With Symbols: Traditionally, the goal of Algebra instruction has been to develop of students' proficiency in working with expressions and equations. This work includes simplifying, factoring, expanding, evaluating, or solving expressions and equations. In addition to these traditional tasks, Say It With Symbols develops the understanding of using symbolic expressions to represent and reason about relationships. The students will write and interpret equivalent expressions, combine expressions to form new expressions, predict patterns of change represented by an equation or expression, and solve equations. This manipulation of symbolic expressions is explored using the properties of equality and the Distributive and Commutative Properties. They will see that the properties reveal new information about a given context by critically examining each part of an expression and explaining how each part relates to the original expression.
