## MS Math – April 29th – May 10th, 2024

This update covers two weeks as we will all be off on fieldtrips most or all of the second week.

Spring is full of nature’s fractals – see if you can find some! Fractals are math!

In 6th grade, we are beginning Chapter 8: Algebraic Equations. In the last chapter, we learned how to write and evaluate algebraic expressions. In this chapter, we will compare expressions to each other with an equal sign, and create an equation. 3x + 1 is an expression; 3x + 1 = 7 is an equation. By making a comparison to 7, we can now solve and find the value of x. One of the skills we will work on this week is translating words in to mathematical phrases. The video below reviews some basic key words to look out for and how to write them as numbers and operations.

In 6th grade, we are finishing up our chapter on algebraic expressions with a test on Friday. Students should be able to evaluate algebraic expressions using the correct order of operations, combine like terms, use the distributive property to simplify expressions, and identify equivalent expressions. These concepts are important in building a solid foundation as we move into solving algebraic equations next week.

This week, the 6th graders will

Chapter 6 is all about algebraic expressions. This week we will learn how to evaluate exponents and how to correctly use order of operations. For these skills, it is important that the students use an organized, step by step process. If they can learn the process, they will be able to correctly evaluate almost any expression. The image below is a nice example of how to show your work step by step, following the Order of Operations process.

## Algebra – Mrs. VonFeldt

This week in Algebra are evaluating exponential expressions using all the properties of exponents. This skill is foundational to our upcoming lessons on exponential growth and decay, and our study of quadratic functions. The image below is a good summary.

In 6th grade, we have begun our unit on algebra. We will first look at algebraic expressions and how to represent different situations using variables. This week, we will practice evaluating expressions using the correct order of operations. Watch the video below for an overview of basic algebra:

So true!

We are getting back in the flow of learning as we move into the second semester! We will have winter ride on Tuesday. Be sure to do your homework and have it ready for class on Wednesday.

This week, the 6th graders will finish up Chapter 5 on percentage with a test on Thursday. Students have done a great job learning how to find the percent of a number, find the whole value when given a percent and a part, or find the percent from a part and a whole. We are using the percentage formula you see below as one strategy for solving word problems. If your student needs more review, IXL is a great learning tool.

In Chapter 6, we will learn about units of measurement and convert between different units.

## Algebra – Mrs. VonFeldt

This week in Algebra we are continuing to solve systems of linear equations. So far, students can use three strategies: Graphing, Substitution, and Elimination to solve systems of two equations. This week we will learn that you can solve any system by multiplying to get equivalent equations before using one of the methods above. We will end the week looking at systems of inequalities and discuss how they are similar and different from systems of equalities.
