Sixth Grade Math--Students have practiced all the skills in chapter two. We will practice and review chapter two on Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, October 24th, we will have the unit two assessment. Students can practice for their test by doing practice problems. Practice problems can be found in their math books at the end of the chapter and online. Students can also take the practice lesson quizzes and the interactive test in their book. These can be found under the student resource tab. These resources let students know if they have done the problems correctly. Students should also use their study guide as a checklist when studying.
Seventh Grade Math—Students will cover the last of the chapter two skills next week. The last skills include converting between fractions, decimals and percent. Students will learn and memorize benchmark fractions to help with the understanding of ordering and values. Once converted, students will be expected to place values in order. Chapter two will end with an assessment the following week, on Wednesday, October 31st.
Eighth Grade Math--Students are working through chapter three. We will be learning the lessons in chapter three out of order. Students will be working on sections 3-5 to 3-7 next week. These sections focus on square numbers, cubic numbers, classifying numbers, and the Pythagorean Theorem. Before the end of the quarter, students will have one more assessment on just the sections covered in chapter three. We will start quarter two with the sections on scientific notation.
Algebra-- Students will finish chapter three next week. In order to keep pace, we will not have a quiz during chapter three. Instead, students will work through the chapter and have a test on Friday, October 26th. This will allow the class to start chapter 4 by the beginning of November.
