Monday and Tuesday June 3rd and 4th

We completed Investigation 4 today and are starting our review for the Final Unit Assessment.  

Essential Learnings:
  • Translates information about linear relationships given a table, a graph, or an equation to one of the other forms.
  • Solves problems and make decisions about linear relationships using information given in tables, graphs, and symbolic expressions.

Areas of Focus:
Constructs tables, graphs and symbolic equations.
Recognizes linear relationships
Solve and equation for an unknown.
Find x or y when you substitute in the other value in an equation.
Understands the rate change, slope and y-intercept.
Finds the slope of a line given 2 points on a line or given an equation.
Finds point of intersection of two lines given a graph or a table.
Find y-intercept when given an equation.

Here is the study packet for students to complete.  These were handed out in class today.

Tuesday May14 - Study Sheets for Investigation 2 Quiz

In Moving Straight Ahead, students will study some basic ideas of algebra and some ways to use those ideas to solve problems involving linear relationships and linear functions. In particular, they will be assessed on:
  • Recognize problem situations in which two variables have a linear relationship to each other;
  • Describe the patterns of change between the independent and dependent variables for linear relationships that are represented in tables, graphs or equations;
  • Construct tables, graphs, and symbolic equations that express linear relationships;
  • Translate information about linear relations given in a table, a graph, or an equation to one of the other forms.
