# MS Math – Week of Nov. 14-18, 2022

6th Grade Math – Mrs. VonFeldt and Mrs. Evans

This week in 6th grade math, we will graph ordered pairs on the coordinate system. We have, in past years, graphed in the first quadrant, in which both x and y coordinates are positive (x,y). Now we will graph in 3 other quadrants in which both x and y can be positive or negative. After we practice graphing points, we will find distances between points and solve problems using a coordinate system.

7th Grade Math – Mrs. Evans

In 7th grade math this week we will extend our understanding of proportional relationships by graphing them. We will familiarize ourselves with what proportional relationships look like when they are graphed (straight lines that go through the origin). Proportional relationships are those that have constant rates and can be represented by a unit rate, also known as the constant of proportionality. Here is a video showing how to graph a proportional relationship:

We will finish this module after graphing, review and do an assessment at the end of the week.

8th Grade Math – Mrs. Evans

This week we will finish up Chapter 2 with a project in which we will represent numerous real world situations in equations, tables and graphs. Here is an example of what this looks like:

Upon finishing our projects, we move into Chapter 3, in which we will expand our understanding of exponents, beginning with negative exponents.

Here is a video review of what we should already know about exponents from previous years studies:

Algebra – Mrs. VonFeldt

This week we will wrap up Chapter 3 and test on Thursday. The biggest focus this chapter was on graphing linear equations. We learned how to find the x and y intercepts – two points make a line. And we learned how to graph an equation from slope intercept form: y = mx + b. We also added function notation as a fancy way of identifying functions.
