Math Week 9-24-18

7th Loyola: We continue to learn about proportions and how to tell if a relationship is proportional. We will spend the bulk of our time relating proportions to algebra by determining the constant of proportionality (and direct and partial variation), k, in terms of y=kx.

7th Chicago: We learn about equivalent ratios. We will use tape diagrams to determine equivalent ratios. We then focus on unit rates and how to use unit rates to compare relationships.

8th DePaul: We continue to practice with the rules of exponents: multiplying, dividing, negative powers, zero power, power to a power. We then investigate really big and really small numbers using scientific notation. 

8th UIC: Then we practice with the rules of exponents: multiplying, dividing, negative powers, zero power, power to a power. We then investigate really big and really small numbers using scientific notation, as well as, how to multiply and divide numbers in scientific notation.

Math Week 9-17-18

7th Loyola: We learn about proportions and how to tell if a relationship is proportional. We also relate proportions to algebra by determining the constant of proportionality, k, in terms of y=kx.

7th Chicago: We learn about ratios and how to represent and model ratios. We then move to determining equivalent ratios.

8th DePaul: We practice with the rules of exponents: multiplying, dividing, negative powers, zero power, power to a power. 

8th UIC: We finish with distinguishing between rational and irrational numbers. Then we practice with the rules of exponents: multiplying, dividing, negative powers, zero power, power to a power. Students will also review distributive property as it relates to algebraic expressions and equations.
