April 6th--Pre-Algebra--Week 1--Off Campus Learning

Please click on the title of this post. It is linked to a general overview of all activities/assignments for this week. Assignments will be written in detail and submitted through Google Classroom. Each student has received an invite via their Glenwood Email to join their class. 
 
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate! I am available by email or remind all day, and during our scheduled Zoom meetings weekly. 

IMPORTANT: March 16-27--NO ASSIGNMENTS

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
