Complete: Lesson 2

OVERDUE :  Week 15 blog post

May 26

Plan for the day:

Warmup: Factoring Friday !!
– skills check on slope (post a copy of your skills check in your class notebook – title – “skills check ch 8”
– Lesson:  Equations of lines (linear)
patterns rightarrow equation rightarrow graph
Explore using desmos (create your own using sliders)

check your understanding (select graphing and formulas)

By the end of class you will be able to:
-determine the slope and y-intercept of a line from an equation
– to graph an equation using slope and y-intercept
– to write a linear equation for a line

IXL – check your understanding – from a graph
IXL – check your understanding – from an equation

Complete: Chapter 9 Lesson 1 pg 557   Lesson 2 pg ?  AND   Week 15 blog post!

May 25th

Plan for the day:

Warmup:  slope review (choose slope) (slope from graph)
– team time (discuss homework)
Lesson:  Slope of Parallel (parallel) and perpendicular (perp)  lines

Explore perpendicular lines with geogebra
check your understanding

By the end of class you will be able to:

  • Describe how you know if two lines are parallel or perpendicular
  • Draw lines that are parallel and perpendicular
  • Identify parallel and perpendicular lines from a graph, chart or pattern

Complete: Chapter 8 Lesson 6 (Pg 540)
start thinking about  Blog post Week 15
