Jr. High Math

In 7th Grade Math students are studying expressions and equations.  We have learned that Algebraic Expressions have variables, coefficients and constants.  They can be simplified through combining (adding) like terms, expanded through the distributive property, and factored using their greatest common factors.  This study will lead us to better understanding of simplifying and solving linear equations.

 In 8th Grade Math students are studying linear equations and line graphs.  Building on the work we did in 7th grade we have been graphing, interpreting and writing linear equations.  This study will help us as we proceed into the next concept of solving, interpreting and graphing systems of linear equations.
