**This week we will finish our study of equations and inequalities. The Chapter 8 test will be on Friday. We have learned how to solve equations by using inverse operations. We have also learned to compare quantities using inequalities. We can write inequalities from verbal statements and can also graph them on a number line. The Math Antics video below is a great summary of basic inequalities:**

**This week we will finish up our studies in Module 10. We have learned that we can take a random sample of a population of things or people that we are interested in understanding better, poll them with non-biased questions and gather data that we can use to make inferences. We can find the mean, median, mode and range, create frequency tables, dot plots and box plots. We can use proportional thinking to infer things about our population. This week we will learn more about how to take random samples, with and without technology and then we will have a heavy quiz on the module at the end of the week. **

**This week in 8th grade math** **we will continue to learn about linear equations as we learn about the standard and slope-intercept forms of lines. We will learn to write equations for lines that are graphed, 2 points, and when we are given a slope and y-intercept. Here is a summary of the 3 ways we might see linear equations represented: **

**This week in Algebra we are finishing up Chapter 8 on factoring. The test will be on Friday. Quadratic functions are extremely useful in real life. We will review some of those situations this week and use factoring to solve for unknown values. In the next chapter, we will learn more strategies for solving quadratics. **
