Here are our tasks and goal for today:

In class you will be getting your tests returned that we took prior to break.  You will look over the feedbackalong with this Review and Summary document -->  01_07_2014 percent test review_1.pdf01_07_2014 percent test review_1.pdf  You will use class time today to make sure you have mastered the material and make corrections to your test.  If you do not finish the corrections, please come to office hours this week to complete the corrections.

Also, you will receive the 2 homework assignments that began our new unit on operations with fractions.  Your task will be to review the answer keys to these assignments and then complete the reflections documents to self-assess your level of understanding and mastery.

Homework and Information for the week - 12/2/2013 to 12/6/2013

Monday  12/2/2013

Check out this fun video on graphing linear inequalities with 2 variables -->  "Shade it".  You will see in this video that they describe a "test point" method to decide which side of the line to graph.  I prefer the "above or below the line" method as it is connected to the meaning of less than or greater than inequality symbol.

Today we will begin our study of solving what is known as a "System of Equations".  A system of equations is a set of 2 or more equations with 2 or more variables.  The solution to a system of equations is the value of the variables that make all of the equations true.  Our study of systems of equations will begin with 2 linear equations with 2 variables.
