This week we completed our geometry unit and started our final math unit of the year on algebra. Students will practice four skills:
-Solve multistep equations.
-Solve equations that have variables on both sides.
-Read and write inequalities and graph them on a number line.
-Solve multistep inequalities.
Today your child received a practice packet with worked examples of all these skills. We will focus on pages 556-601 in our textbook. We will also use Gizmo, Khan, and other resources to practice these important skills. The quiz is scheduled for Tuesday, May 17th and the final test Tuesday, May 24th.
