This week in math we will be focusing on solving and graphing inequalities. The procedure for solving them closely mimics what students have been doing with one and two-step equations, with only a few differences (namely having to reverse the inequality sign when multiplying or dividing with a negative number). Students will be graphing their solutions on number lines as well as replacing variables with numbers to check their answers. The tentative assessment date is Thursday, although it might be Friday depending on whether the classes need an extra day of practice. This lesson is covered in Volume 2 of the textbook on pp. 497-519
This week in science we will be starting our unit on Tectonic Plates, Earthquakes, and Volcanoes. The first lesson will be on the theory of continental drift, Pangaea, and tectonic plate movement. This information can be found on pp. 300-316 in the textbook. All vocabulary terms in each chapter should be defined in their science notebooks. A multiple-choice quiz on plate tectonics will be given at the end of the week.
