Aim: How can we assess our understanding of proportional reasoning?
Homework: No HW Do Now: Please clear your desk of everything except for a pencil, calculator, and scantron. Complete the GREEN side of the scantron. Classwork: Unit 2 Exam Announcements: We will be starting Unit 3, Linear Relationships, on Monday, December 5. AIM: How can we prepare for our unit 2 exam? HW: Prepare for exam  use study guide below to help. Do Now: A jacket is discounted 70%. Write two expressions that find the price of jacket after the discount. Announcement: UNIT 2 EXAM TOMORROW. Please see previous email for list of topics. Classwork: Student reviewed topics from Unit 2. They were able to work on a review sheet as well as ask directed questions on classwork and homework. Resources:
AIM: How can we find unit rates involving complex fractions? HW: Finish Complex Fractions Unit Rate handout Do Now: Find the unit rate. 1. A bathtub fills at a rate of 20 gallons every 4 minutes. 2. You get paid $100 for eight hours of work. Announcement: Classwork: We applied our knowledge of unit rates and proportional reasoning to tackle more difficult problems that involved fractions instead of whole numbers. For example: Find the unit rate in miles per hour if Jana rides her bike 12 miles in 45 minutes (3/4 hour). Resources:
AIM: How can we find percents of a mixture?
HW: Unit 2 Textbook p.76 #2734, p.8081 #5153 Do Now: Suppose Ming has 35 scoops of highprotein food. She wants to make a mix that is 40% highfiber food and 60% highprotein food. How many scoops of highfiber food should she add? Solve this as many ways as you can. Announcement: Unit 2 Exam Thursday December 1. Classwork: Students selfassessed their work from Problem 3.3. They also worked with their collaborative partnerships to answer other proportion related questions. Resources: Aim: How can we use scale factors, proportions, rate tables, and equations to find amounts of a mixture?
Homework: Unit 2 Textbook  Finish Problem 3.3 Do Now: Noted in lesson. Classwork: We looked at a problem in the context of a zookeeper that is in charge of feeding the chimpanzees at the zoo. The zookeeper needs to give the adult and baby chimpanzees different ratios of fiber to protein. We looked at how we could use proportional reasoning to solve a variety of situations. Announcements: Unit 2 Exam on Proportional Reasoning scheduled for next Wednesday, November 30th. Resources: AIM: How can we use scale factors, proportions, rate tables, and equations to find amounts of a mixture?
HW: Unit 2 Textbook Problem 3.3 PART A ONLY!! p.69 Do Now: 1.) A new pair of shoes cost the store n dollars. They markup their shoes 65%. Write two equations to represent the selling price, p. 2.) The shoes are ugly, so no one buys them for the selling price, p. The store puts them on sale for 30% off. Write two equations to represent the discounted price, d. Announcement: Classwork: In this Problem, the ratio of ingredients is given in percents. Students use rate tables, unit rates, equations, graphs, and proportions to answer questions about the mixture. Students fill in a table including both parttopart and parttowhole ratios. Sometimes they reason using parttopart ratios, and sometimes they use parttowhole ratios. Students think about one relationship by analyzing a graph. The power of a graph is that it shows many solutions for an equation. Students explore graphs further in the next Unit. Resources: AIM: How can we assess our understanding of proportional reasoning?
HW: Enjoy your weekend! Do Now: Please clear your desk of everything except for a pencil and calculator. Announcement: We will be having a unit exam the week of 11/28122. Classwork: Unit 2  Quiz 2 Resources: AIM: How can we use proportions to find percents of amounts?
HW: Finish tax & tip worksheet Do Now: A shirt with tax included costs $36.72. The tax rate was 8%. What was the cost of the shirt before tax? Announcement: Prepare for tomorrow's quiz. Classwork: We looked over situations that required students to work backwards using percent proportions. Students engaged in peer review of homework problems. Resources: AIM: How can we use proportions to find percents of amounts?
HW: Finish tax & tip worksheet Do Now: A pair of sneakers cost $85. They are on sale for 15% off. How much money will come off the price of the sneakers? Announcement: Classwork: We explored the concepts of discount and tip today. We looked at scenarios around the upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday. We also looked at restaurant situations where diners are expected to leave a tip for service provided by waiters or waitresses. Students shared various methods to find percents, including shortcut methods that can be used without calculators. Resources: AIM: How can we use proportions to find percents of amounts?
HW: Unit 2 textbook, Finish problem 3.1 Do Now: Bob's Calculators buys calculators for $15. He marks them up $8. What is the sale price of the calculators? Announcement: Prepare for quiz Friday. Topics will include proportionality topics: unit rate, constant of proportionality, equations, tables, graphs; and percents of numbers: tax, discount, markup, commission, tip. Classwork: We investigated a problem involving a used car salesman deciding where he should work. Two prospective employers offer two different ways to earn an income. The students used their understanding of markup, commission, and percents of numbers to determine which employer would yield a higher income. Resources: Part/Whole = %/100, where Whole is the amount of the item(s) and the Part is the portion of the whole (in this case, tax).
