Our warmup problem was a review of a compound inequality. About 70% had the correct solution. We also discussed some common errors. Then students had about 25 minutes to complete their quiz 1.4  1.5. The 1.5 book assignment was collected.

Our warmup question was solving an inequality and graphing its solution (section 1.5). Students picked a state and received information on the Buy the Hour project. Please complete activity 1 tonight.
Then we went through a 3 step process for solving an absolute value equation. We went through 5 examples.

Students did a great job (29 of 31 correct) solving #44 from section 1.4. We went over the even answered and asked if students had questions for section 1.4. This homework was collected. We also asked if there were questions on 1.5; however, no questions were asked. We used the last half of class to review literal equations (from 1.4). We did 6 examples together.
HW: Complete the evens or odds on the Literal Equations Worksheet. This will be turned in tomorrow with bopok assignment 1.5. Quiz 1.4  1.5 will be this Friday, 8/29. We started with #43 from section 1.4. We had 9 students answer correctly. Then we went over common errors in solving this problem. Then we worked out a couple word problems in our groups and reviewed how to solve inequalities with another 5  6 examples.
Remember when solving an inequaity that if you multiply or divide by a negative number you must reverse the inequality sign.

We had about 2/3 of students answer it correctly (as opposed to 1/3 last Friday). Good improvement!
We completed our class examples from section 1.4 (finding unknowns), which included about 4 additional problems. HW: Complete all of the following problems on page 30  32 21, 23, 25  30, 32  34, 37, 38, 42, 52, 61  63, 66 Students received their books today. They also received an access code for the online book. Students completed an equation in class. We found that only 11/32 had the correct answer and we looked at some common pitfalls in solving a multistep equation. We also went through an "age" word problem and showed how to solve it 3 different ways. Please complete the following problems from 1.4 for Monday.
HW: Page 30  31 21, 23, 25  30 (check your answer witht Student were given the course syllabus and we went over it in class. Then students completed the TINspire Scavenger Hunt Worksheet from yesterday. Lastly, students were given a preassessment for chapter 2. Please do this to the best of your ability. Only complete 1  20.
HW: Turn in preassessment tomorrow (okay if some are left blank if you don't know the We had 2 students demonstrate 2 different solutions to the 5 & 3 gallon jug problem (how to get 4 gallons in the 5 gallon jug). Great job with this!
We completed the PBIS activity on peer pressure. Then we used the rest of class to complete the TINspire Scavenger Hunt Worksheet. Calculator information is below.

companies that applied to learning mathematics. Students were challenged to think of their slogan for he 2014  15 school year. We also acted out the counterfeit money problem from yesterday. Thanks to our actors! Students also had almost 12 minutes to complete the Knowledge Search Worksheet. Tonight's homework: How do you fill a 5 gallon jug with exactly 4 gallons of water given only 2 containers, a 5 gallon jug and a 3 gallon jug? We completed the given PBIS activities for each class, ours had a summary of learning styles and inventories from earlier in the day. We shared with our small group what we learned about ourselves. We also went over class expectations, a quick get to you know activity, and the counterfeit problem.
I hope you had a great first day!
