**6th Grade Math**

As the first trimester wrapped up,
so did the third unit in sixth grade math on integers. As this new trimester
begins, sixth grade has started to dive into our first unit in algebra! With
algebra comes lots of hands on activities to discover the relationships between
numbers and variables. Our current unit looks at order of operations and
algebraic expressions. After the holiday break, we will begin to look at
algebraic equations.

**7th Grade Math**

As the sixth grade is starting up
their first unit on algebraic concepts, the seventh grade math class is
completing their first unit on algebraic concepts. They just finished up a unit
that focused on writing and simplifying algebraic expressions, which gave us
lots of opportunities to play and learn with manipulatives! Our next unit will
move onto solving algebraic equations and will continue to present
opportunities to play and learn with more manipulatives!

**7th Grade Pre-Algebra**

**7th Grade Pre-Algebra**

The seventh grade Pre-Algebra class
is in the middle of a unit focused on ratios, proportions, and percents. We have
been looking at graphs of proportional relationships that will help lead to an understanding
of linear relationships that is a large focus in the Algebra I curriculum. As
we come to the end of looking at proportional relationships in this unit, we
will use what we learned to investigate the connection between percents and
proportions.

##
**8th Grade Math**

The eighth grade math class is
finishing up a unit focused on algebraic concepts as well. We have spent the
last couple weeks practicing solving all different equations! One-step
equations, two-step equations, equations with variables on both sides,
equations that involve combining like-terms, equations that involve the
Distributive Property, and equations that involve all of the above! Equations
with one solution, equations with no solution, and equations with infinitely
many solutions! This deep understanding of equations will help lead to a deeper
understanding of linear relationships, which we will study later this year.

**8th Grade Algebra I**

**8th Grade Algebra I**

The Algebra I class is currently
learning about linear relationships. Although we spend a few units focused on
linear relationships, we are currently working on graphing. We have been
practicing graphing linear equations in slope-intercept form, y=mx+b, and in
Standard Form, Ax + By = C. We have enjoyed watching some videos that students
and teachers have created to help us remember the steps for graphing these
equations! Our next unit will continue to focus on linear relationships, but
move towards writing equations.
