Could not find any upcoming assignments due.

If you would like to have a prelim look at how to navigate Google Classroom, please see this video made by Mrs. Henderson in the high school. Thanks Mrs. Henderson!

Parents and Students,

In light of Glenwood needing to close over the next two weeks, administration has decided that there will be no academic assignment for these next two weeks. Our priority for you is to stay healthy and safe! Please, everyone stay home and healthy.

I will be available thru email or the Remind App should you need to contact me. Please don't hesitate at all with questions or concerns. I will be happy to assist from a distance :).

Should anyone want to review concepts at home, the following websites will be useful tools. There are videos on some, and others provide great practice! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Again, this is absolutely NOT required, only for those who wish to consult these resources.

Websites:

(This is a great online graphing calculator!)

Topics covered in the past month:

Ordered Pairs

Functions and function notation

Rate of Change

Finding Slope

Writing Linear Equations

Graphing Equations by:

- finding a table of values
- solving for the x and y intercepts
- slope intercept form
- point slope form

Weekly Standards:

Understand that a function is a rule that assigns to each input exactly one output. The graph of a function is the set of ordered pairs consisting of an input and the corresponding output. [8-F1]

Compare properties of two functions, each represented in a different way (algebraically, graphically, numerically in tables, or by verbal descriptions). [8-F2]

Interpret the equation *y* = *mx* + *b* as defining a linear function whose graph is a straight line; give examples of functions that are not linear. [8-F3]
