AIM: What is Sudoku and what skills can we learn from playing it?
HW: Enjoy Winter Break! Do Now: a) List games that you have played that involve numbers. b) Are there any math skills that you've learned by playing these games? Classwork: We learned how to play Sudoku in class today. The common misconception is that Sudoku is a game that requires calculations. In fact, Sudoku is a puzzle game that requires reasoning above all else. Players must be able to prove why numbers must go in their locations. This type of thinking is necessary to be successful in middle school math and beyond. AIM: How can we complete student perception surveys?
Announcement: Midterms are Wednesday and Thursday, January 24 & 25 HW: Enjoy your evening Do Now: Please clear your desk of everything except for a pen or pencil. Classwork: Student perception surveys Resources IM: How can we practice representing relationships on the coordinate plane?
Announcement: Midterms are Wednesday and Thursday, January 24 & 25 HW: Finish Graphing Tables on a separate coordinate axes (14 by 14 grid) Do Now: Do you think the relationship between time and money is linear? Explain. Time  0  1  2  3  4  Money  6  8  10  12  14  Classwork: Graph each data set on a 14 by 14 coordinate plane. Use appropriate scales and label axes. Data sets found below. Resources AIM: How can we use a table, graph, or equation to determine if a relationship is linear?
Announcement: Midterms are Wednesday and Thursday, January 24 & 25 HW: Moving Straight Ahead pp. 1011 Parts A & C only Do Now: Monique walks 3 meters per second. If d represents distance and t represents time in seconds, what equation can be used to find the distance she walks for any number of seconds. Classwork: Today's lesson focused on the walking rate of three students, Alana, Gilberto, and Leanne. We were given their individual walking rates and from those we constructed a table. The information from the table was then used to represent the situation graphically. We will investigate how to represent their walking rates by using equations. Resources AIM: What equations represents the relationship between time and distance for your walking rate?
Announcement: HW: Unit 3 Textbook pp. 1621 #12,15 Do Now: Roberto earned a 90 1st marking period, and an 86 2nd marking period. What would he need in the 3rd marking period for a total average of 90? Classwork: We looked at walking rates today. In their collaborative groups, students selected one representative to go into the hallway and use a stopwatch to determine how long it took to walk 20 meters. The times were reported back to the class and were recorded in a table. From the information, we calculated walking rates, wrote equations to describe the relationship between distance and time, and used them to answer related questions.

HW: Prepare for Quiz Thursday Do Now: Please take out your work from yesterday. Announcement: There will be a Percent Quiz, Thursday, December 14, 2017. Topics will include: Discount, tax, tip, markup, commission, writing percent expressions and equations, the percent of an amount, working backwards with percent Classwork: Goal: Make 12 points from the questions around the room. Record your work and responses on a separate sheet of paper. When you think you have 12 points, ask a teacher to check. You will get a "Yes" or "No" response. Anyone who can get all of the points, will receive two Tiger Tokens. Model response packets were passed out to analyze with partners.

HW: Percent Application Sheet (found below) Do Now: A shirt is on sale for 30% off. Write an equation to find ?the discounted price, d, of the shirt that costs p dollars. Announcement: There will be a Percent Quiz, Thursday, December 14, 2017. Topics will include: Discount, tax, tip, markup, commission, writing percent expressions and equations, the percent of an amount, working backwards with percent Classwork: Students worked in collaborative groups on a sampling of percent problems. Some problems involved finding mark ups and selling prices. Some involved finding tips and total amounts including tip. Other problems required students to find the discount of an item and then determine the discounted price. On the higher level end, students were required to work backwards to find original amounts (prediscount or pretax). Resources:
