Announcements 12-7-12

News from Team USA

Team USA 7th graders have been learning about graphing linear equations in math class.  During class, they competed in the graphing challenge.  To complete this the classroom was turned into a coordinate grid!  Small groups of students needed to graph equations on the class size coordinate grid.  Students labeled the x and y axis and then proceeded to discus the y-intercept and slope.  Students engaged in conversation around how to graph equations and enjoyed the activity.
