This week we will finish with graphing rational numbers in Chapter 3 with a test on Wednesday. We will begin to investigate ratios, rates and unit rates as we work into Chapter 4. Here is a video about ratios and rates:

This week, we will finish our study of proportional relationships with a heavy quiz on Thursday. We have learned a lot in this module and will be able to apply it throughout the rest of the year. In Module 5 we will plunge into studying about percents and how to determine a percent change. The percent change is defined as follows:

We will be determining the markup and markdown on quantities using percents. Here is a video about percent change to introduce you to this useful concept.

There will be a Chapter 3 test on Thursday, November 18. It will cover graphing linear equations. In Chapter 4 we will look at ways to find the equation of a line when you have different pieces of information. How can you find an equation when you have two points? A point and a slope? A y-intercept and a point? Students are getting very familiar with the different representations of linear situations. They can now graph directly from an equation, create a table from an equation or graph, and find an equation directly from a graph.
