**7th Grade Math:** This week students will apply their knowledge of solving equations to solving inequalities. The process is very much the same. This topic is extremely important for them to understand this process as this foundational skill will follow them throughout the rest of their experiences in mathematics!

**8th Grade Algebra 2:** Students will finish Chapter 6: Inverses & Radical Functions. They will learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide functions, as well as what inverses are and how to tell if two functions are inverses of each other. They will also be revisiting square root functions and their graphs. Their Chapter 6 Test will be February 14.

**7th Grade Algebra 1:** Algebra 1 students will finish Chapter 7 this week: Exponents & Exponential Functions. They will learn how to apply positive and negative exponents to algebraic expressions, as well as how to multiply and divide expressions with these exponents. They will also use the zero exponent and fractional exponents. This chapter can be very tough for students as it is very new to them. However, a good understanding of these concepts is necessary to help with their understanding later in their mathematics experiences.

##### February 4 - 8

Students will be taking their mid-year MAP assessments February 4th & 5th. While these tests do not count for a grade, they are an indicator of your child's current progress in mathematics. They beginning-of-the-year MAP scores were shared with parents/guardians at the time of parent/teacher conferences in October, so you can compare your child's current score to their earlier score to determine the progress he/she has made so far this school year.

**7th Grade Math:**

We will review the process of solving one-step equations that students learned how to do in 6th grade. They will take a quiz on Tuesday over this. They will then begin two-step equations. They will learn to write them from a word problem and solve them by "undoing" the equation.

**8th Grade Algebra 2:**

We will review the assignments I left for them to do last week. Students will have ample opportunities to ask questions about things they may not have been sure of from last week. They will then take the Chapter 5 Test (Part 2) beginning on Wednesday.

**7th Grade Algebra 1:**

We will review linear inequalities (6-5) and systems of linear inequalities (6-6) that students worked on last week and they will have a chance to ask questions. We will do a quick review of Chapter 6, then take the Chapter 6 Test beginning Wednesday.

##### January 7 - 11

I will not have tutoring this Monday (Jan. 7) after school as I am still out due to foot surgery I had over break. I will make every effort to resume Monday tutoring next week.
