We will be finishing up our Algebra and Patterning unit this week and as always, students are given ample time and preparation to revise and get ready for the end of unit test on Thursday, March 11.
Here are some review videos of all the concepts we have learned for this unit:
* This video has two examples with exponents. You DO NOT need to know exponents. Watch the first two examples until 2:10
Solving Equations (Balancing)
* This video has one example at the end with negative numbers. You DO NOT need to know this. We are only using whole numbers. Watch the first three examples until 4:15
Writing Equations from Word Problems
Students are encouraged to use IXL algebra and patterning recommendations and assigned tasks from Miss Mellenthin and Mrs. Thompson, alongside paper practise. Here are the worksheets to print if you prefer paper copies (5B have copies in their bags):
- Simplifying expressions
- The balancing act
- Find the value (1 step)
- Graphing Inequalities
- Word Problems
To help you study at home, here is a study planner, as well as tips for how to study!
Early next week we will also be sharing a full review package.
As always, there will be check-in sessions in class with the teacher and peer mentoring opportunities. If you need to reach out, please do not hesitate!
