## Wednesday, January 15, 2014 - Review graded work

**Bell Work**- Complete Week 1 on p.GA4 in Holt textbook located before the Table of Contents.

**Homework**- Complete "Solving Inequalities" p.14 and/or 20. Class time was given to complete both assignments. Students must show organized work for p.20 #1-20, but do not have to for p.14 #1-12. Students must identify which graph matches the given solution of the inequality. Assignment is listed under Tuesday.

**Classwork**- The following assignments were graded based on completion (20% weight category) and were returned and reviewed.

1. Solving Equations with Decimals

2. Solving Equations with Fractions

3. Why Did the Cow Keep Jumping Over the Barrel?

4. Creating Equations with Variables

5. The Language of Algebra

## Thursday, January 16, 2014 - Understanding Perimeter and Area

**Bell Work**- Complete Week 2 on p.GA5 in Holt textbook located before the Table of Contents.

**Homework**- Complete "Subtraction Searching" first posted Tuesday of this week. Class time was given to complete this assignment. The set up of several of these equations are different because the variables are negative. Examples were demonstrated in class. Still use inverse operations to isolate the variable. Organized work can be shown, but is not required. Use mental math if you prefer.

**Classwork**- Explore and apply perimeter and area by designing bumper car floor plans. Students used square tiles to create different plans with desired specifications. Key points to remember:

**Tomorrow we will find the cost of different floor plans.**

__(1) Perimeter is a length and measures the distance around a figure. (2) Area is measured in square units and measures the amount of space being covered. (3) Two figures can have the same area, but have different perimeters. (4) For two figures with the same area, the more spread out the area is, the more sides of this area will be exposed creating greater perimeter. (5) For two figures with the same area, the wider the area, the smaller the perimeter will be.__**Cumulative quiz on Friday over material from the past week and a half.**

**Bell Work**- Complete Week 3 on p.GA6 in Holt textbook located before the Table of Contents.

**Homework - 5th period only**- Finish "Subtraction Searching" first posted Tuesday of this week. The set up of several of these equations are different because the variables are negative. Examples were demonstrated in class. Still use inverse operations to isolate the variable. Organized work can be shown, but is
