Inequalities

Seeing Structure in Expressions

  • Interpret the structure of expressions.

Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities

  • Understand solving equations as a process of reasoning and explain the reasoning.
  • Solve equations and inequalities in one variable.
  • Solve system of equations.
  • Represent and solve equations and inequalities graphically.

Creating Equations

  • Create equations that describe numbers or relationships.

Quantities

  • Reason quantitatively and use units to solve problems.

Statistics and Probability

  • Draw, construct and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them. 
  • Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume.
  • Use random sampling to draw inferences about a population. 
  • Draw informal comparative inferences about two populations. 
  • Investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.
  • Analyze functions using different representation.

Interpret Functions

  • Understand the concept of a function and use function notation.
  • Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.

Building Functions

  • Build a function that models a relationship between two quantities.
  • Build new functions from existing functions.

Interpreting Categorical and Quantitative Data

  • Summarize, represent, and interpret data on a single count or measurement variable.
  • Summarize, represent, and interpret data on two categorical and quantitative variables.
  • Interpret linear models.

Congruence

  • Experiment with transformations in the plane.
  • Understand congruence in terms of rigid motions.
  • Make geometric constructions.

 

Expressing Geometric Properties with Equations

  • Use coordinates to prove simple geometric theorems.

Mathematical Practices:

  1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
  2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
  3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
  4. Model with mathematics.
  5. Use appropriate tools strategically.
  6. Attend to precision.
  7. Look for and make use of structure.
  8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Homework Policy:

In order to be successful in math, you must PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!

Assignments are generally due on Fridays unless otherwise noted on your assignment sheet.  Each homework assignment is worth 5 points based off of the following requirements:

  • Assignments must be done in pencil
  • Assignments must be graded in pen (no marker or black pen)
  • Assignments must show all work
  • Assignments must be done in Cornell Note Style
  • Assignments must be complete

NO WORK = NO CREDIT

 

Supplies Needed:

  • Lined Paper
  • Graph Paper
  • Pencils/erasers
  • Correcting pen

Test Policy:

A student may retake their test no matter what grade they received on their initial test.  They have one week from the time tests are passed back to retake the test.  Tests must be retaken on the students own time, not during any scheduled class.  If the student scores higher on the retake, the new test will replace the original test for a new grade.  If the student scores lower on the new test, it will not be counted and the student will remain with their original grade.

 

The student must do test corrections before retaking the test.  If a student is in 8th grade, they must do the test corrections in math tutorial and get Mrs. Silvias signature on their test corrections.

 

It is up to the student to come in and retake the test.  There may not be prompting from the teacher.

 

The student may make corrections on their tests without retaking it to earn 1 point back.  This must be done within one week of getting the test handed back.

 

All tests must be finished during the class period.

 

No retakes on quizzes.
