Fractions & Slope

February 26, 2015

Mrs. Vrbka’s Pre-Algebra classes are just beginning a chapter on fractions.  They have been reviewing special vocabulary terms like numerator, denominator, and least common denominator.  The first couple sections they have worked on are adding and subtracting fractions with like or unlike denominators.  They are excited to get into multiplying and dividing fractions later in this chapter and even get into solving equations that involve fractions.

Mrs. Vrbka’s Algebra IA classes are finishing up a chapter on linear functions.  During this chapter they have talked a lot about the slope of a line.  They have worked on identifying the slope of a line and also having to figure out the slope of the line in order to graph it.  Mrs. Vrbka’s class will be finishing the chapter by doing a couple activities that involve using the information about graphing lines to draw pictures.
