Tuesday, November 14th Big Gold Test Tom Turkey extra credit

Our gold assessment on Integers & Coordinate Plane has been moved to this Thursday, November 16th! I want to make sure all my classes have the appropriate amount of time to practice graphing ordered pairs before we test on this skill. Students were given a study guide today in class and we worked through the majority of it together as a whole group. Almost all students finished in class but if your student had any remaining problems, they were instructed to finish them at home for homework!

We began our unit on integers today! Students took notes from the board today as follows:

We also talked about the location of positive integers and negative integers on the number line. Finally, we noted the fact that integers get bigger as you increase on the number line and how integers get smaller as you decrease on the number line.
