8th Grade Math

With Ms. Johnston - Week of February 1st

In Our Class

Last week students learned the basics of linear equations. Students learned how to write linear equations in slope-intercept form (y = mx+b) and learned what each variable in the equation represents. Students wrote linear equations from real world scenarios (word problems) and from tables last week. This week students will be working on writing linear equations from tables and graphs.

Students will have two homework assignments this week (one that involves writing linear equations from tables, and one that involves writing linear equations from graphs).

Students should be in class every day, including quiz/test days. When students miss class they should get notes from the class website and come in for tutoring on Thursday morning at 7:45. This will keep them up to date on what we are learning in class.

Just a reminder...
Students should have their interactive notebook every day in class! We use the interactive notebooks to take notes (so that all notes are in the same place). Students are allowed to use this notebook on their quizzes and tests.

Students have a folder that should stay in the classroom where they can keep any worksheets or assignments we work in on class (also allowed to be used on quizzes and tests).
