This Week in Mathematics

Statistics Project Due May 1st (Deadline was extended from last Friday)

Scale Model Project

The scale model project is here!! The students have already begun measuring and scaling their objects! Everyone is very excited!!

Any and all cardboard you have around, are not using, and would not miss, could be made into something amazing here! Send it in with your student, and I will store it for them!

I am collecting materials for students to use to complete their project- Mainly any and all cardboard, and from what I have been told, I am anticipating using a lot of it. :) anything we can reuse and not buy, would be great!

Students may also use clay, tin foil, model magic, etc. I will have some of these supplies available for students to add details to their projects. If this is a material your student would like to complete their entire project out of, please anticipate sending them with a supply of it- but cardboard is a perfectly adequate (and light) material to use.

Some other important notes:

Students will be making everything in class- from start to finish. Anything they bring in cannot be pre-prepared, marked, pre-cut, etc. or they will not be able to use it.

Students will have access to use x-acto`s and hot glue guns under teacher guidance, but MAY NOT bring in their own ( the x-acto`s for safety reasons, the hot glue guns because I would hate for anyone`s to be broken)

Thank you in advance for saving and sending in cardboard!!
