Oh my goodness, I know it has been an extremely long time and so much has happened!
THIS JUST IN (well about a month ago)...... MISS RUDOLPH IS TEACHING ALGEBRA 1! PANIC MODE SET IN.
Okay, so as soon as I found this out, I had my little panic of not being prepared but then I got myself into gear and recalled all the wonderful resources out there.
In fact, I decided to do an INB with my kiddos and so far, so good.
One topic that had not been addressed in the resources that I found was the idea of rational expressions. Now, we're introducing the topic to our kids and revisiting it later. For now, our kids are just using GCF to help reduce. No factoring trinomials (we learn that later).
So for those notes, here's what I did.....
I then had to figure out how to do some examples..... I started writing them out then realized, it'd be easier to keep with the pace and provide a piece of paper for the kids to glue..... so I did!
I'll upload the doc later... I really just needed to post because (1) I felt bad and (2) I need the digital files of the notes for the kids and (3) I wanted to share the news about Algebra 1.
Okay! I'll be back soon... I promise....
TOLD YOU I'D BE BACK!!!! Here's the file!
