"December at-a-glance"
 Algebra 2017 - 2018August/ SeptemberThe students will familiarize themselves with the expectations of the class.  The shall also work on Relations and Functions before they proceed to learn how to solve multi-step equations.OctoberThe students have been working on solving equations with variables on both sides, word problems involving ratios, and solving proportions.  They shall then be working on percents of change, sales tax, discount, and dimensional analysis. NovemberThe students will be working on solving for variables and dimensional analysis.  They will then learn about x- and y-intercepts and slopes of lines.  They shall review relationships that have a direct variation and then solve problems involving Arithmetic Sequences. DecemberThe students are working on writing equations of lines in slope-intercept form and in point-slope form.  This includes expressing the equations of lines from one form to another.  They are also learning about the relationships of equations of lines that are perpendicular or parallel. Math 2017 - 2018August/ SeptemberThe students will familiarize themselves with the expectations of the class.  They will begin the year by reviewing operations with fractions, mixed numbers, and signed numbers.  They will then work on finding volumes of cylinders, cones, and spheres.  After the topic of volumes, they will do a test and then proceed to learn about Real Numbers.OctoberThe students are working on simplifying expressions (monomials) using laws of exponents.  They will also be introduced to zero and negative exponents.  NovemberThe students will be working on solving problems involving Scientific Notation, square roots, and cube roots.  They will be solving real-world problems related to these topics.DecemberThe students are working on solving and checking one- and two-step equations.  They are also learning to solve word problems involving equations.
