In our first two lessons in the new school, we investigated conversions of units such as lengths like centimeters and inches (also yards and feet) as well as temperature units of Celsius and Fahrenheit. We learned from them that there are two different types of linear relationships:

Like the bouncy ball activity, we again saw how the

Our homework for Tuesday is #2, 3 and 5 from the Practice section of our HANDOUT, and also #1-3 from a separate handout titled Linear Representations. We had inconsistent homework done last day, so Tuesday we will have a homework check.

Note: our next summative assessment is for the topic of Algebra (which we have done throughout the semester). It is a regular term summative, but will be written on

**direct**and**partial**variations. We now know that...**direct**is when__nothing__of one variable, is__nothing__of the other variable, and**partial**is when__nothing__of one variable, is__something__of the other variable.Like the bouncy ball activity, we again saw how the

__rate of change__*(really what makes a relationship linear)*is shown in all our linear representations: tables, graphs, descriptions and equations. We also learned what a__start value__is, and how it too is shown in all representations and noticed that it's the start value that makes a linear relation either direct...SV=0, or partial...SV not =0.Our homework for Tuesday is #2, 3 and 5 from the Practice section of our HANDOUT, and also #1-3 from a separate handout titled Linear Representations.
