Pre-Algebra: Lesson 3-2 was due today. Before students turned it in, they did problems #11 and 12. We went over those problems, then students turned in their homework. We started Lesson 3-3, Comparing Linear and Nonlinear Functions. Students did the Solve & Discuss It! on their own then turned to talk about it with a partner. Then, as a class, we went over possible representations of a solution. Next, we read and discussed Example 1 before watching the video. We ended class with the Try It! at the bottom of page 172. We will start tomorrow's lesson with Example 2 at the top of page 173. There is no homework today.
U.S. History: Today we watched a Flocabulary on the 13 Colonies that emphasized the 3 colonial regions: New England, Middle, and Southern. We also took the quiz, read the vocabulary cards, and did the read and respond. Students have a better understanding of each region's economy and resources. The guidelines for the Colony One-Pager are now on Google Classroom. Students can begin working on their documents. There is no homework today.
