There are 10 true or false statements that students have to answer after reading the table.  Tuesday  Content: functions and equations Students will learn how to write an equation to represent a function and graph the linear function on the coordinate graph. PP: 595  599
 Students will receive a packet for solving equations with rational coefficients. (Chapter 8.1) Vocabulary; solution, inverse operation, equivalent equations and property of equality. Homework page is due on Friday, 5/11.  Wednesday
to Friday  Continue with Tuesday's lesson. Introduce this week's project: Mother's Day card with the concepts of area, lines of symmetry, writing equations and making predictions.  Continue with the packet and practice operations with fractions and decimals. Students have a choice to make a 3D mother's day card (area, lines of symmetry and writing equations will be included with the activity) on Thursday and Friday.   Weekly assessment: measurement, lines of symmetry, writing equations for the situations given and graphing functions. A 3D Mother's Day card and the assessment questions will be the performance grade for this week.

 6th Math  Honor's Math  Monday to Friday
 Probability Packet: This packet allows us to apply our knowledge in converting fraction to decimal to percent into probability situations. We will focus on simple probability this week...the outcomes of rolling a numbered cube, the outcome of spinning a colored wheel, and the outcome of drawing a name form a collection. Students will be able to apply their knowledge in fractions and percent in these situations and be able to interpret the meaning of the events. Vocabulary: event, outcome, total outcome, chance, how likely, probability
The packet will count as a 20% practice grade.
Friday, March 9th, is the last day of third quarter. All retakes and late work need to be turned in by the end of the week.
 Percent Packet: This packet covers lessons 64 to 66. Focus skills are: finding percent change, markups & discounts, and simple and compound interests. Students will be applying their basic knowledge in finding percent of a number to reallife situations where they have to calculate and understand profit, lost, discount and interests. Vocabulary: percent of change, markup, profit, discount, lost, percent of error, simple interest and compound interest.
Friday, March 9th: 1) Two TenMarks assignments due (Calculating Percents & Proportional reasoning with percents) 2) The end of 3rd quarter: any retakes or late work need to be turned in
