Everyone should of taught the first day of the unit (intro and graphing method). How did it go? Are there any suggestions on how to make it better? Are there any problems that you think we need to change or modify?

I think my students did a good job of understanding the unit, but I will have more to say after we go over the homework tomorrow/

My kids struggled a bit but it is part 2. They are getting better at graphing though. I am going to take it slow with substitution because they cannot handle too many steps at once.

Well there are a few things to fix on the notes worksheets. Such as how much will the bill be each moth? Overall, the graphing method seemed to go good. I'll find out more info today.

I am going to try to attach the Chapter 9 notes that I used with my class. I really think using a notes packet helps the kids. By the end of the unit I noticed the kids looking back in their notes for how to do the different types of problems. Where as before they couldn't keep up with all of their notes.

I agree. My students asked if we could have notes with every chapter.
