File Attachments

to:All Students

One thing I like to do is provide you the parent with as much information as possible.  If you notice in the gradebook when you open it, each assignment will be "Highlighted" in a blue color if it has an attachment to it.  If you click on the "Highlighted" assignment, you can download the workbook pages we are working on in class.  this will be beneficial to you the parent to use worksheets we don't do in class as supplemental help for your child at home.  You can print these pdf documents for free and practice as much as you wish.

Pre-Algebra Beginnings

to:All Students

The first few days of school are always rough for kids because they feel like they are not learning new things.  Well that is the case here on day 5.  We are reviewing mental math estimation to aid in their future understanding of estimation within Algebra.  The cool thing about estimation is that it has so many practical applications within everyday life.  For example, you walk into a store with $40, you pick out two items that cost $24.99 and $14.99 will you have enough with tax to pay for the two items?  Depending on the state tax where you live you may or may not.  If you round $24.99 to $25 and $14.99 to $15 and add that puts you at $40 even, so with tax you would not have enough.  We are teaching your students to use Math wherever they go.

Experimental Variables

Today we discussed how the change in certain variables within scientific inquiry can answer questions from an original hypothesis.  Each variable is either independent (What I'm testing), Dependent (Results of data) or Constant (remains the same).  Please see attached Power Point on the lesson from the day if you want to review it with your students.
