1. Interpreting mathematical representations using words or pictures.The problem sets we will be investigating are below. They focus on interpreting points within a context (A1) and sketching graphs from words (A3). As we work through these problem sets I hope that we develop a fluency in using the mathematical language of graphs, tables and algebra to describe and analyse situations from the real world. We will do this by engaging in thoughtful discussion as a whole class, between partners, and in groups in order to comprehend as well as communicate information presented in a mathematical form.
2. Translating words or pictures into mathematical representations.
3. Translating between mathematical representations.
4. Describing functional relationships using words or pictures.
5. Combining information presented in various ways, and drawing inferences where appropriate.
6. Using mathematical representations to solve problems arising from realistic situations.
7. Describing or explaining the methods used and the results obtained.

While we investigate and solve problems in class, our opening problems and homework will be reviewing the work on systems of equations you did in Algebra 1. The homework for this week is at the link below:
