7A and 7B Math--Students will begin chapter 9, continuing their study of Geometry. This chapter will have many formulas and figure identification. Students need to have a calculator for every class in order to complete their work efficiently. We will begin next week with perimeter, circumference and area of 2-dimensional figures.
Eighth Grade Math--The eighth graders have begun working with lines and their slopes. Students will be calculating slope, using slope intercepts to graph, and writing equations in slope intercept form. We will work through chapter 8 on slope over the next couple of weeks.
Algebra--Students will continue to work through chapter 9 next week. The focus will be on solving quadratic equations. Students will finish the chapter by the end of the week. Since there is no school on Friday, the students will take the test for chapter 9 on Monday. It will still count for the third quarter, I just wanted to give the students extra time to prepare.
