Today, students learned to use substitution to evaluate algebraic expressions. We worked through the examples on MSG page 104 and 105.
Today, students showed off their understanding of exponents and order of operations on a quiz! Stay tuned for shout-outs to those who made an A!
Today, some classes set up Unit 4 in the MSG, and other classes worked on solving problems using the order of operations. Tomorrow, all classes will take a short quiz on exponents and order of operations, so STUDY!

Today, students began with a Unit 3 Pre-test, to assess prior knowledge of expressions. Then, they learned to evaluate and write expressions with exponents! We watched a video (see below) and worked through several practice problems.
Also, we are so happy to welcome back Mrs. Schwak from maternity leave! :)
Whew! This week has been a whirlwind, with conferences, short classes, and wrapping up Unit 2. But, we made it!

Today, students began their Unit 2 Test. We will finish tomorrow. Homework is to STUDY!!
Today, students continued to review all of the standards they have learned in Unit 2. Those standards include the following:
MGSE6.RP2: Unit rates
MGSE6.RP3a: Ratio tables
MGSE6.RP3b: Unit rate problems and proportions
MGSE6.RP3d: Converting units of measurement
Students will take the test on these standards tomorrow and Friday, so STUDY! :)
ALL CLASSES: Make a "cheat sheet" for the Unit 2 Test. On a piece of paper, write down ANY notes that you would like to use on your test tomorrow. You may include example problems, vocabulary, the percent proportion, Metric "staircase," etc. This homework IS optional, but it is a good way to study, and you'll get to use a CHEAT SHEET on your TEST!! :)
Bothers: IXL standards R4, R6, and R8 due Monday
Leach: Study Unit 2 review sheets, study guide, etc. Quiz corrections due Friday
Today, students continued to review for the Unit 2 Test on Ratios & Proportions. We will take the test this Thursday and Friday, so STUDY! :)
Today, students worked on the Unit 2 Pre/Post Test. This 10-problem assessment was given as a pre-test at the start of the unit, and was given at the end of the unit to assess growth. Their results will also be used to help us help them as we review this week!
ALL CLASSES: Study for Unit 2 Test Thursday/Friday!
Bothers: Pd 4 - Finish IXL Standard T.7
Leach: Percent Review Sheet; Quiz Corrections due tomorrow (last Tuesday's quiz); Corrections due this Friday for the quiz that you got back today
