The homework (pg. 45 #63) today from the book, Thinking With Mathematical Models, is a little difficult. I have posted the steps for part b if you need help. It is at the top of the page listed as "Homework Key".
I also think it would be helpful to work part D and C before A and B. It does not matter to me what order they are in when the assignment is turned in.

Thank you!

Welcome back!!

Happy New Year!!
I can't believe we are starting the second semester, the year is flying by!
On Wednesday, January 5th we will start a new unit. The book is called Thinking With Mathematical Models. In the first investigation, we will find the breaking weight for a bridge (using pennies) based on the thickness of the bridge and the length of the bridge. This book will look at linear relationships (which we studied in Moving Straight Ahead) and non-linear relationships.
I'm looking forward to getting back to our routine. Remember, students will have homework assigned Monday due Wednesday, Wednesday due Friday, and Friday due Monday.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
I hope everyone had a wonderful break!
