## Graphing Linear Equations–Common Core Style

Mrs. Marsh and Mrs. Vernon’s Pre-Algebra classes participated in many Common Core Math activities that focused on the following standard:

A-CED.2: Create equations in two or more variables to represent relationships between quantities; graph equations on coordinate axes with labels and scales.

Their students worked on investigations (see below to download), discussed their findings verbally and on the SMART board, and applied their knowledge on the Buzz Math computer website. Well done students!

## Add Some Aleks Adventurers to the List

Mrs. Marsh, Mrs. Vernon, and Mr. Melito introduced the Aleks program to their Pre-Algebra students. Their students were up for the challenge and have done a great job. The students completed a tutorial on how to use the program, took a pre-assessment, and have been working hard on learning new math content and answering difficult questions. For over a month, all students have continually been improving their math skills and increasing their topic pie! Nice job students and staff!
