6th Grade Math--This week we adjusted to middle school. The students learned to access their text books on the school website. They were shown resources they could find on the text book website that will help them prepare and practice in the future. Students also learned how to take notes in Notability, send emails, and persevere through challenging problems.The skills we worked on this week were estimation and long division. It was a fantastic start to the new year.
7th Grade Math--Students learned how math stations would work this week. Math stations will be used to practice previously learned skills and introduce new ones. This week we worked on Order of Operations and Properties of Numbers. Students learned to take proper notes, complete tasks and help each other learn and grow. Wonderful first week.
8th Grade Math-- Students learned how math stations would work this week. Math stations will be used to practice previously learned skills and introduce new ones. This week we worked on reviewing multiplication of rational numbers. This includes both decimals and fractions. We also practiced converting fractions to decimals and percents. Students reviewed how to take proper notes, complete tasks and stay focused. Great job getting back in the swing of things.
Algebra--Students started the Algebra curriculum this week. Using online resources, notes taken at the end of last year and the available technology, students reviewed the skills and concepts of chapter one. They completed a two-part review and a chapter assessment. We will be reviewing Chapter 2 next week. The Algebra program moves quickly and can be challenging. Encourage your Algebra student to practice or review a little each night to avoid being overwhelmed.
