Jan 24

Covered in class: Completed Chapter 3 and Started Chapter 4 

Homework: Complete 3D,3E,4B,4C,4E

Chapter 4:

  • Distributive Property

  • Distributive Property in reverse

Notes:

In Algebra class, we complete the first page together, and then complete evens or odd problem on the following 2 pages. Students can request I do any problem on the page, and we will work it out together.  For homework, students complete the pages we worked on and then do the last 2 pages of the chapter.  The last 2 pages are accumulative review pages.  Again, students are allowed to review the pages before leaving class and request we work on any problem in the chapter.  For homework, I want students to attempt all homework problems.  I encourage them to use any resource to solve the problem.  Working with a friend is a fantastic option.  

Jan 31

Covered in class: Chapter 5 & Started 6

Homework: Complete Chapter 5C, 5D,5E, 6A

Chapter 5:

  • Graphing Coordinates

  • Plotting values on a number line

  • Quadrants

  • Reviewed Associate, Commutative, and Distributive Property

  • Simplifying and solving unknowns

  • "Clearing" fractions


Chapter 6:

  • Calculating X and Y for graphing

  • Plotting points

  • Writing an equation of a line

Notes:

Today we also reviewed vocabulary.  I want to make sure students use correct terms when talking about math.  I also encourage students to use any resource to solve problems.  This teaches them to read, listen, and mimic to find an answer.  I also encourage them to check answers as soon as they calculate answers because they are most invested in the problem at that time.

Finally, I have noticed students missing pre-algebra skills.  In addition to our Algebra class work, we are spending time in class learning pre-algebra skills.  We are breaking down the skills to fully understand what we are doing so we can build a strong foundation for Algebra.

We then started Chapter 8.
