IMPORTANT: THE STUDENTS WILL BE WRITING THE EQAO GRADE 9 MATH ASSESSMENT ON JAN 14 AND JAN 15 (THERE ARE 2 DAYS OF THE ASSESSMENT). STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE PRESENT ON BOTH DAYS. I WILL BE COUNTING THE EQAO TEST AS THE CULMINATING ACTIVITY FOR THE COURSE WHICH IS 9% OF THE STUDENTS’ FINAL GRADE IN THE COURSE.
I began the class today by reviewing the lesson we did yesterday on the digital projector for those students that were away yesterday. After going over yesterday’s lesson, I then took up any questions the students had from yesterday’s homework (this was from the worksheets titled “Graphing Lines in Slope-Intercept Form” and “Writing Linear Equations”). After taking up the questions, I then told the students that we would be doing a new lesson today. The title of today’s lesson was “Parallel Vs. Perpendicular Lines”. I first went over a few definitions and then did a some examples. After going over the examples I then gave the students the homework to work on which was a worksheet titled “Parallel and Perpendicular Lines Worksheet”. I will take up any questions the students have from today’s homework at the start of tomorrow’s class.
Below you will find a copies of the handouts/worksheets that were distributed/assigned in today’s class.
