MAFS.8.EE.3.7 a & b
Solve linear equations in one variable.
a. Give examples of linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. Show which of these possibilities is the case by successively transforming the given equation into simpler forms, until an equivalent equation of the form x=a, a=a or a=b results (where a and b are different numbers).
b. Solve linear equations with rational number coefficients, including equations whose solutions require expanding expressions using the distributive property and collecting like terms.

Solve real-world and mathematical problems by graphing points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. Include use of coordinates and absolute value to find distances between points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• explain the differences between one solution, no solution, and infinitely many.
• solve a linear equation with one solution, no solution, and infinitely many.
• simplify equations using distributive property, combining like terms, and inverse operations.
• solve multi-step linear equations with rational number coefficients.

• understand that a line segment from one coordinate pair to another represents a distance.
• understand that if two coordinates have the same x- or y-value, they are on the same line.
• understand that the distance from a point on a coordinate plane to an axis is an absolute value.
• use the coordinate plane to represent real-world scenarios, such as streets of a map.
• model solutions to real-world problems on a coordinate plane.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student


DIA #4 Thursday 2/14/19

Assignments Due

DIA #4 Thursday 2/14/19

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   BB6

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) 

Make sure all work is complete as review for the DIA (Thursday 2/14/19)

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
