This week in math we'll be continuing our unit on equations. Students will continue to practice solving two-step equations (quiz on Tuesday) and work their way up to creating and solving their own equations from word problems (quiz on Thursday). We will also start solving and graphing inequalities this week, with a test to follow sometime early next week.
This week in science we will conclude our lesson on organ systems and levels of organization with a quiz on Tuesday. Students will be given a study guide on Monday and the correct answers will be reviewed before they leave class. The rest of the week will be spent learning about mitosis - the process of cell division. It is possible that they will have a quiz over this on Friday, but like last week, that could be postponed if we don't cover the material thoroughly enough. Students will need to know the names and order of each step, as well as be able to match each step with a picture. A good start would be to memorize the phrase "I Pray More At The Church:"
I - Interphase
Pray - Prophase
More - Metaphase
At - Anaphase
The - Telophase
Church - Cytokinesis
