**Happy Halloween everyone!**

My gift to you: Pumpkin Pi!

We worked in MATHia today. Don't forget that the current Functions & Linear Models module is due next Friday.

Be safe tonight!

My gift to you: Pumpkin Pi!

We worked in MATHia today. Don't forget that the current Functions & Linear Models module is due next Friday.

Be safe tonight!

Today you worked in MATHia X, and are hopefully nearing the finish line on this current module. Two weeks to go!

Here is this week's extra credit:

Here is this week's extra credit:

Today we took a quick look at perfect squares.

After that, many of you finished your Chapter 3 test. Those that were already done spent the rest of the period doing more work with Marblesides (see Monday's post) or working to catch-up in MATHia X.

Speaking of MATHia, are you on pace to finish the

We took our Chapter 3 test in class today. I hope it went really well for you, perhaps even so well that you exited the classroom dancing!!

**Homework: MATHia X**

Today we finished the second half of Lesson 3.6, which focused on equations in standard form.

We'll be taking our Chapter 3 test tomorrow. Happy studying!!

We worked through an awesome Desmos Marbleslides activity today to experiment with slopes and intercepts of linear equations. If you'd like to spend a bit more time on the challenge problems tonight, feel free to jump right in at student.desmos.com.

Also, a reminder that we'll be taking our Chapter 3 test on Wednesday. Happy studying!

**Homework:** MATHia practice

*Period 4: CNBWP**Period 6: 9K6NQ**Period 1: XKNV5**Period 2: 8YRA6**Period 3: XV7V7*

Also, a reminder that we'll be taking our Chapter 3 test on Wednesday. Happy studying!

We learned three major things in the first half of Lesson 3.6 today:

__If you need some help on tonight's homework__, check out the examples on pages 198 and 199 and the videos above! They'll show you exactly what to do with the info you have to determine the y-intercept and the slope.

*Parents: Have your child explain to you the process to find the equation of a line 1) given the slope and a point, and 2) given only two points. If they can explain their strategy in their own words, you know they're ready for their homework.*

Only begin tonight's homework after reviewing the classwork from today. These skills definitely take__practice__!

- How to graph a function using slope-intercept form,
- How to write an equation in slope-intercept form given only the slope and a point, and
- How to write an equation in slope-intercept form given only two points

Today we finished Lesson 3.5 and can now determine the y-intercept from a graph, a table, a context, and an equation.

Today we learned how to find the y-intercept in a graph, table, context, and equation in Lesson 3.5. We did the first half of the lesson, and will finish the rest tomorrow.

**Homework:** Determining Y-Intercepts worksheet

We spent today finishing up our Common Assessment #2 and working in MATHia.

**Homework:** MATHia X

Are you on track to meet your MATHia X Goals?You should be nearing completion of 9 workspaces in the Linear Functions Module since we nearing the end of chapter 3. If you're not quite there, consider spending some extra time this weekend to get yourself back on track.

We prepped for tomorrow's **Common Assessment #2** today with a rather involved warm-up, then spent the rest of the class period investigating the rate of change from an equation with an awesome Desmos activity!

If you didn't finish the activity in class today, be sure to do so tonight at home. Head to student.desmos.com, then type in your class code:

P6. UDUW3

P1: T3WVR

P2: A4QKG

P3: FCQ3P

P4: YZF2V

*A study guide for tomorrow's common assessment is available in the Document Locker.*

**Homework:** Study for Common Assessment

**Wednesday HW Solutions:** Slope from Equations worksheet answer key

Today we learned how to find the slope (also known as rate of change) from an equation in Lesson 3.4. We learned that when an equation is written in

Don't forget to check your class work with the answers linked above.

There is not a set formula or method to solving these - it's all about thinking critically, evaluating what you'd need to know to answer the question, and using the clues given to determine the rate.

We finished our look at rates of change from a table today with the last part of Lesson 3.2. The focus today was on tables that *may* or *may not* represent linear functions, and what it takes to tell the difference.

**Homework:** Textbook pages 160-161 _{}^{}

Today we continued our look at finding the rate of change and unit rate from a table with Lesson 3.2. We're now proficient with both informal and formal methods.

Sometimes, some students get tripped up not with the rate of change methods, but in adding and subtracting positive and negative numbers. If you need to brush up on those skills, use the daily practice links at the side to become an integer master!

Today we learned how to find the rate of change from a table with Lesson 3.2. We learned both an informal method (arrows) and a formal method (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1).

Be sure to practice the formal method on your homework tonight, as it's a more powerful way to determine a correct answer without error!

**Homework:** Textbook page 154

Be sure to practice the formal method on your homework tonight, as it's a more powerful way to determine a correct answer without error!

Today we spent the majority of the day in MATHia X. I also passed back the Chapter 2 tests.

Homework: Complete 1.5 Workspaces in MATHia + whatever catch-up needs to happen to finish Linear Equations.
