At this point in the quarter we are finishing up our study of Rational Numbers. We have worked with Fractions, Decimals, Percentages, Integers, and Order of Operations. It’s now time to move toward Algebra, beginning with the study of mathematical Properties. Later in the quarter we will continue Algebra starting with Expressions and finishing with Equations and Inequalities. Students will begin to work with variables and learn how to combine like terms to simplify expressions and eventually solve for the missing variable.
