This week in math will be spent focusing on building inequalities from word problems. Monday's lesson will cover solving two-step inequalities (exactly the same as solving two-step equations but students have to remember to reverse the inequality sign if they multiply or divide by a negative number), while the rest of the week will be spent on word problems. Students will be quizzed on solving inequalities on Wednesday and then on building/solving inequalities from word problems on Friday.
This week in science will be the formal introduction to the unit on plants. VSVS will be visiting 3rd Period on Monday and 4th/6th Period on Tuesday. These two days will be blocked off for pre-tests on each standard within the unit. Starting on Wednesday we will dive further into photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Students will need to memorize the chemical formulas for both, be able to explain the process of fermentation, and know the function of chlorophyll. A quiz will be given on Friday.
