Math 8 - Stone

We started our second to last book today. This will be a nice break from our last one.

we started talking about equivalent expressions. We discussed how to tell if expressions are equivalent (1) plug in a number for the variable to test if each expression produces the same value and (2) simplify to the same basic expression.

Homework: page 15 (1-2, 18-23 you do not need to draw the rectangles)

Spanish 2

Students practiced verbs like gustar in preparation for tomorrow's quiz.

Gustar Verbs Quiz: Tomorrow

Unit 7 Test: Friday, March 17


Classwork: Today we discussed and took notes on power, heat and electricity in homes as well as static electricity. Students then worked on review questions for both of these sections from the book (14.3/15.1). These questions are homework if not finished, due Wednesday.

Homework: Students were given the alarm circuit project details on Friday and shown examples (extras in the science folder on the blog). By Wednesday, they should come to class with a detailed, labeled sketch of their idea as well as some materials.

Suggested materials: Batteries (9V may work best), wire, electrical tape and a buzzer (if desired). We have materials in class that can be used but they have to be returned at the end of the project, which means the project will have to be taken apart.
