2nd 9 Weeks!!!
We have made it through the 1st 9 weeks understanding expectations and responsibilities and covering the foundations of this year. During these 9 weeks, we will be moving beyond the foundations and into the core of 8th grade mathematics. These 9 weeks will be more challenging than the first, so much attention and detail is required along with honest and purposeful practice. IU believe each and every student can achieve good understnding if they are willing. These 9 weeks will focus on solving equations, graphing linear equations, geometric transformations, and angle relationships.
As for my Algebra 1 students, we will go further in our understanding of different types of functions such as linear systems of equations and exponential functions. We will also focus on binomial multiplication, representing real-world problems as equations, and understanding sequences.
Please check the other tabs on my website for more information on these subjects and helpful links as well as current and past homework assignments.
