Hi there! Last week, we began a unit on percent. Percentages are used in every day life. They are used in sports, business, statistics, fashion, and so much more! Percent literally means "per 100" or "out of 100". When written as a fraction, 45% would be 45/100. (That fraction could be reduced to 9/50, btw.) Written as a decimal number, 45% would be 0.45. It's important to understand how to use fractions, decimals, and percentages interchangeably.
We will also be computing the percent of a given number. For example, suppose your teacher asks you to find out what 10% of $30 is? You might use this in real life to figure out how much money to subtract from a $30 pair of blue jeans that are on sale for 10% off. 10% of $30 is $3.00 off. So, the blue jeans will actually cost you only $27. To figure this out, we use a special formula. That formula is pictured below along with many other helpful images and videos!
Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!

I am posting the answer key to our ratios, rates, and proportions study guide on the website to ensure that all students are fully prepared for tomorrow's test and notebook check. I even worked out ALL of the problems showing the necessary work. I hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by!
Proportions are used in everyday life alllllll the time! We use them to solve for missing values, to determine the unit price of something, with indirect measurement or similar figures, with scale models and drawings, and so many other ways! Before school gets out for Christmas/winter break, we are going to focus on proportions and how they relate to our lives as students and how they will apply to us in our futures! Below are some helpful graphics and videos that I would encourage each student to watch. Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Hello there! We are starting a new unit this week about function tables (with inputs and outputs) as well as function graphs (linear "line" graphs). Below are some helpful (and entertaining LOL) videos to help the kids study by as well as a few images. These may come in handy while completing HW or studying for a test or quiz. Enjoy!

The following videos have been posted IN THE ORDER that students would need to watch them in order to best learn the material regarding expressions, variables, parts of an expression, combining like terms, the distributive property, and solving equations. :)
