Today we discussed energy systems and reviewed formulas. Tomorrow will be the last day for research and packets will be checked in class Thursday.
Alternative energy paper is due February 8th. We will be having an energy quest (can use notes like a quiz but counts as a test) the week of February 6th.
After that students will be given a study guide and several days in class to review for the mid-term. These grades will all be part of the third marking period.

Sorry I was out sick yesterday when we started our new unit, Frogs, Fleas, and Painted Cubes. It is our 4th unit and it is all about Algebra. It can be challenging. Be sure to ask questions to clarify any confusing parts. In investigation 1.1 we explored the relationship between length, width, area, and perimeter.
Monday's Homework: page 14 (1, 2,, 15, 16, 17 part a)
Today, we completed investigation 1.2. We discovered patterns when comparing length and width. We also summarized all the functions (linear equations, inverse variations. exponential, and quadratic) and what their equations, graphs, and data tables look like.
