Greer - 8th Grade Science

Greer - 8th Grade Science
All hours:  The quest was moved to Friday to provide an extra day for the students and I to make sure that we were on the same page following my leave.  Mid-term reviews are due Monday, February 13.

Math 8 - Stone

Day 2 of graphing went pretty well! We reviewed the two graphs from homework last night and tried out two more together. We also created a list to summarize how to graph a quadratic (parabola) when only given the equation.

Our quiz is next Tuesday!


Stein - Math 8 Plus - 2.9.17

What We Did Today:

Students finished Problem 1.1, Butterfly Symmetry: Line Reflections. Students confirmed their conjectures of relationships between a line of reflection and the line segments drawn from an original vertex to their reflection vertex. Students used their generalizations to construct the reflection of a given figure. Notes and vocabulary are available at

Focus Question:

What does it mean to say that a figure has flip or reflectional symmetry? How is each point related to its image under transformation by reflection in a line?




Classwork: Students received the mid-term review packet today and had all class period to work on it. They should have it completed by tomorrow so we can go over it in class together.

Coming up: Monday & Tuesday of next week we will spend class time studying, completing more review practice, and playing a review game of Jeopardy. Mid term for units 1-3 will be on Wednesday, February 15th. It will be multiple choice and short answer.

Next unit: Electricity!
