We completed Investigation 3.1 and went over the ACE Problems 1-3.

Students are in the midst of Investigation 3.2 working with triangles.

We gave them review problems in ACE 22-27 on pages 57-59 for homework.

Today in class the students received Skills #7. This will be due on Friday. Wednesday of this week is the question day for skills.

Students are taking a re-entry Check-in to see where they are as we are halfway through the next Unit - Stretching and Shrinking.

### Wednesday - Thursday November 14th/15th

The goals:

1. Understand how to use and apply scale factor to create similar shapes

2. Understand how rules change an images location or shape.

In these two days we are working through Investigation 2.2 and 2.3 in the Stretching and Shrinking Text. Students are learning how a rule (2x, 2y) alters an figure/image. Also if a rule such as

(x+2, y - 4) is applied to a set of coordinate points how is the figure is changed?

### Tuesday November 13th

The goals of the class:

1. Correctly stretch and shrink figures on a coordinate graph using rules.

2. Identify similar figures and imposters.

The students were exposed to the character Mug Wump in Investigation 2.1 in their text. Students were introduced to the vocabulary: rule, proportion, scale factor, similar, and imposter.

We graphed the first mug wump coordinates together then I showed how to apply the rule to the other wumps. Students then worked on their own creating data points and graphing the characters.

The students final task was to complete the plotting and find out which wumps are imposters and which are similar to the original, Mug Wump.

Investigation 2.1 C p. 24

### Tuesday Nov 6th

The past two days the students worked in our new book Stretching and Shrinking. Here is the parent letter explaining the content of the Unit.

Today the students spent their time in Investigation 1.2. They were creating scaled images using a rubber band stretching system. After they created enlarged figures they needed to make comparison statements between given lengths, areas, perimeters and angles.

Here are some photos of today's class.

The work was spent on A and B of Problem 1.2 and also ACE Problems 1 and 2 p. 12. Any problems not completed are homework.

### Monday November 5th

Today the students had the goals of:

1. Understanding what makes two things similar.

2. Identifying professions where scale modeling is used.

3. Knowing how to create scale figures.

We walked through Investigation 1.1 page 5 and 6 together.

We looked at ways students could use an know object to approximate the length and width of other objects.
