Homework  Week of April 22, 2013
The Calculator Applications unit will be an inclass unit. Because most of the students do not have graphing calculators at home, we will have little to no homework during this unit. We will be exposing the students to the calculators that they will be expected to use in Algebra I next year and teaching them "the basics." We are leaving the linear functions to the Algebra I teachers, but we will be graphing some of the types of graphs we have recently used in 8th grade math  box and whisker plots, histograms, scatter plots, etc.
