Pre-Algebra

We finished our study of Chapter 7: Algebraic Expression with our chapter test yesterday. Graded tests will be returned to students on Monday for parent signature and review.


We will begin our study of Chapter 8: Equation and Inequalities on Monday. In this chapter, students will be solving one-, two-, and multi-step equations and inequalities. Lesson plans for this chapter can be found on my webpage under the 'Daily Assignments and Homework' tab.

Online Textbook:

Our textbook is available online. The website is: http://connectED.mcgraw-hill.com. Each student has a unique username and the password is eagles6. I gave each student a sticker with this information and asked that the sticker be placed in the front of their agenda. I have also asked each student to bookmark the site on their Chromebooks for easy access. In addition to the textbook pages, the site offers self-check quizzes, chapter tests, extra practice worksheets for each lesson, video tutorials, and virtual manipulatives.
