Welcome to 7th Gr News:
Projects are totally awesome! I will post pics as soon as possible.
We will continue with problem solving with percentages next week moving into percent increase and percent decrease. We should be ready for a quiz by Wednesday.
Direct Variation Project is due this Friday, Oct. 11.
We are reviewing what we learned in sixth grade about percents, and then focusing on finding a method to solve percent problems. We will focus heavily on problem solving with percents.
We will have our test on Ch 2 Tuesday.
Picture Day is Monday!! SMILE!!
We have a projected test on Ch 2 scheduled for Friday, September 27.
Please ask your student about the Kool-Aid activity to help understand proportional reasoning! Hopefully, I will be posting pics soon! Sorry 4th period, but I got so involved and enjoyed observing your activity so much that I forgot to take pics!
We are continuing our study of proportional reasoning with Chapter 2.
Our standards are:Identify and model proportional relationships given multiple representations, including tables, graphs, equations, diagrams, verbal descriptions, and real-world situations.a. Determine when two quantities are in a proportional relationship.b. Recognize or compute the constant of proportionality.c. Understand that the constant of proportionality is the unit rate.d. Use equations to model proportional relationships.e. Investigate the graph of a proportional relationship and explain the meaning of specific points (e.g.., origin, unit rate) in the context of the situation.We are really emphasizing the constant of proportionality.
