During my absence from school 5/3 through 5/10, the students continued working with their classmates on the regular 8th grade curriculum and prepared for the NWEA assessments.
We are currently working on chapter 10quadratic and exponential functions. Thursday, 5/11: review of solving quadratics by graphing Friday, 5/12: completing the square Monday, 5/15: quadratic formula Tuesday, 5/16 and Wednesday, 5/17: exponential functions Thursday, 5/18 and Friday, 5/19: growth and decay

Best laid plans...
We are a bit behind schedule. Here is a revised schedule: Monday: complete the test Tuesday: no classRobert Crown visit Wednesday: independently begin lesson 101 (graphing quadratic functions) Thursday: continue with lesson 101 Friday: begin lesson 102 (solving quadratic equations by graphing) Spring Break is over, and it is time to hit the ground running in preparation for the Exit Exam!
Monday: review 91 through 96 Tuesday: practice test Wednesday: chapter test part 1 Thursday: chapter test part 2 Friday: Begin chapter 10 on quadratic and exponential functions We continue working to factor trinomials. It is challenging, but most gratifying when we have success. We will test on Chapter 9 before our Spring Break.
Monday: factors and greatest common factors
Tuesday: factoring using the distributive property Wednesday: factoring trinomials Thursday: factoring trinomials Friday: factoring differences of squares We will have disruptions to class because of the city Science Fair, but we should still complete the polynomial chapter and begin testing by the end of the week.
Next up: factoring (chapter 9) We did not make the progress I intended, so here are the plans for this week:
Monday: scientific notation Tuesday: polynomials Wednesday: adding and subtracting polynomials Thursday: multiplying a polynomials by a monomial Friday: multiplying polynomials We continue with our work on polynomials. This chapter includes multiplying and dividing polynomials, scientific notation, adding and subtracting polynomials, multiplying monomials, and special products.
This week we will divide monomials, express numbers in scientific notation, find the degree of a polynomials, and add and subtract polynomials. We are progressing quite nicely in the algebra class!! This week we wrap up the chapter on solving systems of equations/inequalities and move on to a unit on polynomials and nonlinear functionshooray!
Monday: no school Tuesday: review/begin chapter 7 post test Wednesday: complete chapter 7 post test Thursday: multiplying monomials Friday: dividing monomials We will be finishing the 7th chapter next week and will test at the beginning of the following week. As you saw on report cards, the students are making FANTASTIC progress in algebra!
Monday: wrap of up solving systems of equations using best method (substitution, elimination with +/, and elimination with */ Tuesday: writing and solving systems of equations Wednesday: writing and solving systems of equations continued (very important for preparing for the Exit Exam) Thursday: graphing systems of inequalities Friday: No classdance PARTAY Up next: polynomials
