1. Words to Symbols Thursday, January 30th

2. Words to symbols Example: The tip of an iceberg is the part that you see sticking out of the water. Let’s call the height of that tip t. The height of the tip is just 1/7th of the height of the whole iceberg. Create an equation for the whole iceberg h.

13. Try it! Academic class: • Page 8 #1 – 23 (odd numbered questions only), #25 with a partner • Page 9 #1 – 5 • Extra time: Page 2 Applied class: Geometry (page 5 – 7) • Page 8 #2 – 6

14. Geometry The length of a rectangular field is 3 times longer than the width, w. • Write an algebraic expression for the length, l. • Write an algebraic expression for the perimeter of the field (length of a fence around the field) • Write an algebraic expression for the area of the field

15. Rearranging Equations

16. z 2y x What might this represent?

17. z 2y x Example: x + z = 2y

18. z 2y x x = …

19. z 2y x x = 2y – z

20. z 2y x y = …

21. z 2y x + z 2 x y =

22. 3z = z = 2y 3z 2x y = 2y =

23. 3z = 2x + 2y z = 2y 3z 2x y = 2y =

24. 3z = 2x + 2y z = (2x + 2y) 3 2y 3z 2x y = 2y =

25. z = (2x + 2y) 3 3z = 2x + 2y 2y 3z 2x y = 2y = 3z – 2x

26. z = (2x + 2y) 3 3z = 2x + 2y 2y 3z 2x y = (3z – 2x) 2 2y = 3z – 2x

27. 2y = 3x + 4z Draw this!

28. 3x – z = 2y Draw this!

29. 3x – z = 2y Solve for 3x!

30. 3x – z = 2y Solve for x!

31. True or False? z = x + 2y + g3 x + 2y = 3z - g

32. Rearranging Equations Activity • In teams of two: • Cut out each of the equations and representative bars. • Glue 4 coloured bar graphs to a sheet of cardstock, leaving space underneath each. • Figure out which equations describe the bar graphs. Glue these underneath the correct graph. • Write one new equation using each each bar graph solving for a different variable.
