**Graduation Pictures will be taken Wednesday, February 5th. This is an “out of uniform” day for the 8th grade students.**
**We celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday, February 9th, at 12:00 Mass. Students will receive further instructions regarding the ceremony later this week.**
We continue this week working with non proportional relationships represented by tables, graphs and equations. We will learn how to determine slope using the x and y-intercepts. Students will also be assigned a constructed response question. A constructed response in math requires students to apply their knowledge of certain mathematical skills and explain the process they used to solve a problem. The constructed response will be due on Friday, February 7th.
This week we will work with variables, constants, and coefficients as we begin to solve equations. We will also learn how to translate word phrases to algebraic expressions. Last week we reviewed order of operations and greatest common factor, both important skills needed as we begin our unit on expressions and equations. Students will have a quiz on these two topics on Wednesday, February 5th.
