I hope everyone had a great winter break and a Happy New Year! It is time to jump back into another semester of learning.
Today we are going to review writing and solving one-step equations and learn how to solve and write two-step algebraic equations. For example: Johnny had 2 times as many marbles and Larry. Kate had one more marble than Johnny. Write and equation to show how many marbles Kate has.
L = marbles Larry has
K = marbles Kate has
K = 2L + 1
If Larry has 10 marbles, how many does Kate have?
K = 2(10) + 1 Solve using the order of operations.
K = 20 + 1
K = 21
In social studies we are going to begin learning about Hammurabi's Code and determining whether or not we feel that it is just. This is another mini-q where you will be analyzing documents to formulate your opinion and then writing a paper to support your thoughts. We are going to go through this one in a different manner than usual and a lot faster. We should be finished with it by the middle of next week if all goes as planned.
Can't wait to see all of you this morning!
