Math 8 - Stone


In investigation 3.2 we compared two tile companies. We needed to find with company had the better deal. Of course, it depended on the number of tiles we purchased.

We also learned that when solving equations, it is possible to get no solutions or an infinite number of solutions.

Homework: page 55 (8-17)


In investigation 3.3 we learned that roots are another name for the solution or x-intercepts in a quadratic function. We also found out another name for them is the zero(s) of a quadratic function. We reviewed how to find the roots on a table, in a graph and in an equation. We then practiced finding the roots in equations by factoring.

Homework: page 55 (24-26)

Quiz corrections are due April 11 and make sure to make corrections to the Volume of Mixed Shapes homework worksheet to get full credit.

Wear blue and yellow or Norup apparel tomorrow for spirit points.
