    Today in math 8 we talked about how to find the slope given two points using the slope formula. Students have HW tonight to practice this new concept.

    Students will have a target check over counting slope on a graph, linear tables with slope, and the slope formula on Friday.

    I am available any day before school for additional help.

    Today in math 8 we did an error analysis activity. Students looked at a problem worked out and were asked to identify the mistake that was made. Once they identified the mistake they were asked to solve the problem correctly.

    There are 5 problems for students to work on for HW and we have a target check tomorrow. The target check will cover solving equations with variables on both sides.
