In math, we just
finished up our unit in graphing linear equations. This is a very
important topic in the Pre-algebra and Algebra class. Our adventure in
linear equations will continue in Algebra with systems of equations in November
and Inequalities in December. Pre-Algebra will move into their number
sense unit, beginning with exponents and scientific notation. This unit
will continue through mid-December.
There is currently a
study island assignment that is due November 13th. The assignment is
a great review of our unit in graphing linear equations, reinforcing many
topics completed in the past 6 weeks. All students are encouraged to do
at least 10 questions to earn at least a 60% overall grade.
are learning about energy in science, and they will be using materials from
home to build their waterwheel models. Construction
will occur in class and students will use what they learned about energy to
guide the design of the wheel. They will need cylindrical containers that can
serve as their wheels. If folks have any 2-liter pop bottles, whipped topping
containers, or coffee canisters, please send them to Mr. Haskins's lab! Plastic
recyclables make great building materials! Students will have access to many
other materials in class to build their wheels. Read more about the waterwheelproject online.
