CURRENT UNIT
The Current unit of study is Math Module Unit 1 which is the study of Integer Exponents and Scientific NotationArea of Interaction focus:

Significant concept(s):        Relationships help use make decisions
MYP unit question:             How do I make decisions?

MYP Objective:         C.  Communicating in           D.  Reflection in mathematics
• communicate a complete and coherent mathematical line of reasoning using different forms of representation when investigating complex problems
• explain the importance of his or her findings in connection to real life.
• suggest improvements to the method when necessary.
Students should be able to at the end of the unit be able to:
• Represent problem situations verbally, numerically, algebraically, and graphically
• Use mathematics to show and understand social phenomena
• Create a graph given a description or an expression for a situation involving a linear or nonlinear relationship
• Understand that numerical information can be represented in multiple ways: arithmetically, algebraically, and graphically
• Interpret multiple representations using equation, table of values, and graph
• Determine the slope of a line from a graph and explain the meaning of slope as a constant rate of change
• Determine the y-intercept of a line from a graph and be able to explain the y-intercept
• Graph a line using a table of values
• Determine the equation of a line given the slope and the y-intercep8.G.17 Graph a line from an equation in slope-intercept form ( y = mx + b )
• Solve systems of equations graphically (only linear, integral solutions, y = mx + b format, no vertical/horizontal lines)
Summative Assessment:

Real-life problem – A Test that will not only reflect personal hygiene and excercise issues along with the math but substance abuse issues as well.

Criteria(s) for assessments are:
• Communication in mathematics
• Reflection in mathematics

Rubric(s) that will be used will be as follows:
