Community Survey

Our 7th grade math team is collecting data for our students to analyze.  All 7th graders are required to take the survey for a grade, but we would also like to collect data from as many others as possible.

Honors HW

Tonight Honors students should be completing a graph and seven questions about some data we collected in class involving M&Ms.  Students were working in groups and only had one copy of the data among them.  I instructed them to take a picture of the data, but if your student forgot they should be able to recreate the data from the scenarios below and graph it.

I also included the seven questions they have to answer.  It's important that this gets finished tonight, because we will start a discussion on it tomorrow.

Ratios and Proportions Test Tuesday (Regular Math)

On Tuesday (11/8) students will take the summative test on our Ratios and Proportions unit.  This will cover rate problems like the ones below.

Rate Problems - https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/pre-algebra-ratios-rates/pre-algebra-ratio-word-problems/e/ratio_word_problems

More Advance Rate Problems - https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/pre-algebra-ratios-rates/pre-algebra-rates/e/rate_problems_0.5

Students will also need to solve problems with similar figures like the one below.
What is the length of x?


A more complex example is shown here.
Find the length of a and b?


Both of these skills are essentials for the quarter.  Students should expect to see other topics on their summative in addition to these, but this should help with studying.
