This week in algebra we will begin working in Chapter 10 with graphing Quadratic Functions. We will be talking about how quadratics apply in real life and hopefully the students will begin to make some connections between the physics they will be learning in science and the math behind it. In Chapter 9, factoring, we applied the math in situations where an object is hit into the air or falls from a height, we will continue to to exam these applications and others.
In math we are getting ready to change our pace. We will spend the first part of the week preparing for Thursday's trimester test. Following that, we will be reviewing for ISATs. I am sure that students will whip right through the review of their favorite topics, like fractions ;)
Have a great week!
