Math 8 - Stone

We worked on investigation 2.2 today. This investigation continued to stress the concept of equivalent expressions. We extended this idea to combining two expressions to get a single expression that would get us a faster result.

For example, we had an expression that calculated profit for an amusement park earned based on the number of visitors. We also had an expression that gave us the number of visitors based on the probability of rain. Our challenge was to find the profit based on the probability of rain. We could work through each expression separately or combine the two.

Homework: page 34 (6-9), quiz correction due no later than Thursday, Partner Quiz Friday

Stein - Math 8 Plus - 3.20.17

What We Did Today:

Students started Investigation 3. Problem 3.1 - Flipping on a Grid: Coordinate Rules for Reflections. Students took a basic design element on a coordinate grid and found the rule that generalized reflections based on given lines of symmetry. Students also worked on ACE questions 1 – 3, 8, 16, 26.


Focus Question:

How can you describe how points "move" under a reflection with coordinate rules in the form (x,y)→(   ,   ) when the reflection line is (1) the x-axis? (2) the y-axis? (3) the line y=x?
