Math Test

Today we have a test on Topic 18 – Formulas and Equations.  It basically comes down to this; If given y = x + 3, what is y if x=4?  Or, if I want to be more difficult, if y=3x, what is y if x is 4?  And then we go backwords:

x 1 2 3 4                       So what is the rule?

y 0 1 2 3                        Answer?  y=x-1

Then for a couple, I gave them the rule, and they had to figure out what x and y were, and they graph the ordered pairs.  They love doing that.

We’ll see how they do on the test.

Next topic?  14 – Integers.

Anyone know what an integer is?

Rainy Day Ahead?

They say it’s going to rain.  It looks like it’s going to rain.  Weatherchannel.com says it’s going to rain, but not until around 2:00.  Hopefully the administration is aware of that.  They have a tendency to call a rainy day schedule if it looks like it’s going to rain.  So we’ll see.

Stay tuned.
