February -- Inequalities and the Train Tracks

February 8, 2019

Still re-adjusting from the missed days, two of the normal math classes this week were used to work on the lingering second projects (in both ⅚ and ⅞). This meant we only had math two times this week. The two days were quite productive--a lot of work on inequalities, reviewing of the distributive property, learning standard form of a linear equation, and finishing up assessments did happen.

This week the Pre-Algebra class has been working more closely with linear equations and introducing linear inequalities in one-variable. We have been especially focused on how to work in an organized fashion (the “train tracks” technique) using the reverse order of operations as a guideline for sequencing the multiple steps that may be required. On Thursday and Friday the class worked on an investigation related to these concepts called “Who is Justice Equilibrator”.

The Algebra and Geometry students have been working independently, finishing up diverse topics from linear equations in two-variables, to geometric concepts of quadrilaterals.
