Extra Practice: Here are a few practice problems. Finding slope will not be on chapter 4 test, but it will be on later tests. Writing an equation with a given graph will be on the test, as will be graphing a line given an equation. Connecting tile pattern, equation, graph, and table will be on chapter 4 test.
Chapter 4 Test topics will include: 1. Diamond Problems (see ch 1 and 2) 2. Equations (including distribution) 3. Situation to a rule, tile pattern to a rule, understanding the context of x and y with a rule. 4. Tile pattern --> table --> rule --> graph 5. Is a certain point on the line? 6. Making a table and a graph from a rule.
Equations with parentheses (distribution). This link includes practice and related instructional videos. I highly recommend taking notes while you watch the videos for maximum brain retention. Do the practice set to try out your skills.
