### Car Project

Here is some helpful advice on your car project:

Insurance: Don’t use your real name. Use 04401 for zip code. Don’t need Social security number.

http://affinity.progressive.com/product/auto.asp?code=8004009339

http://www.geico.com/landingpage/go5.htm?soa=42920&SOURCE=goog&KEYWORD=insurance%20quotes&gclid=CODZ36ubqIgCFR8NTAodOSdWRw

Taxes: After you’ve selected all of your options and added up the price of the car, you need to add in the Sales Tax. (5%)

Financing: You don’t need to apply for financing. Just go to this site and select which kind of car you’re getting. You need to multiply the total price (including taxes) of your car (not including your insurance) by the finance rate and then add that number to the total price.

https://www.eloan.com/s/show/auto?context=auto&sid=UMbC2NC4Twt8H7XV3amMnlsoLAs&user=ggl&mcode=gglkw13mfu

Drivers’ Ed: There are several driving schools in the area.

http://bairsdrivingschool.com/

http://www.northeastautocycle.com/

In this project you will choose a car to buy and decide what the "hidden" expenses will be. You have several worksheets to complete. There are recommended resources on insurance, maintenance, and financing but you can use other resources as well.

The sum of three consecutive numbers is 45. What are the integers?

X + X + 1 + X +2 = 45

3x + 3 = 45

3x = 42

x = 14 x +1 = 15 x+2 = 16 14 + 15 + 16 = 45

The sum of three consecutive odd integers is 69. What are the integers? You have 5 minutes.

### Parents and Students

In math class today we worked on a graphing activity called "Fun and Sun." Students were given time to work on the activity in class and if they didn't complete the assignement it became homework. In order to complete the assignment students should have a "Fun and Sun" worksheet and some graph paper. This is due Monday, Sept. 18. We will also have our first quiz on graphing on Mon. Sept. 18.

In Civics class we are doing a timeline on the subject "On the Day I was born......" Students should try to find political and governmental events that occured on the day they were born. They should have at least ten events. Five of the events should deal with politics and government. Click on this link to find a help sheet for timelines:

When we finish with this I want you to get your finding slope papers out and using the calculators on your computers change all your fraction answers to decimals.(You do this by dividing the top number by the bottom number). Leave the whole number answers as they are.

After that please go to http://www.1728.com/distance.htm and check all of your answers on your computer.

Remember that this web-site will give you the slope as a decimal.
