7th Algebra Update 8/18/19

Hello! Welcome to the 7th Grade Algebra web page. I will post an update like this weekly to summarize what we have done and preview what lies ahead. You will also find a weekly calendar updated daily with homework assignments. We had a great first two days of math class. We began by exploring a challenging problem called the handshake problem. Students also shared their methods for calculating the number of cars in a traffic jam. This week, we will begin to explore patterns of operations such as addition, subtraction, and multiplication. Though these are topics they have seen before, we will explore them more deeply to look for underlying patterns and develop useful strategies. We will then take a quiz over these topics. I am looking forward to seeing everyone at open house this Thursday night!
