### Equations and Inequalities Unit

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 17

^{th}and the final test Tuesday, May 24^{th}.

### Geometry Update

After using several weeks of class time to practice identifying polygons, calculating their areas, and plotting their vertices as ordered pair, we are now moving into three-dimensional geometry. We will find the volume of solids and draw their nets on a coordinate plane to calculate their surface area.

This website has several interactive solids and nets: https://illuminations.nctm.org/Activity.aspx?id=3521

### Chess and Go

You can learn chess through many websites. Chesscademy is a site I like. It's set up in a similar way to Khan Academy.

You can learn and play Go through this great website. You can even challenge your friends remotely.

### Area & Spreadsheet

Look at this image and create a Google Document spreadsheet that will calculate the area of any triangle, parallelogram, or trapezoid. Is there only one spreadsheet formula for each shape that will work? How do you know?
