Last week, 7th graders worked with measures of center (mean,median,mode, range) and measures of variation(created a box-and-whisker plot). We also practiced our computation skills. I found that the class needs to practice more with their computation. Students who missed class on Friday and students who answered the warm-up incorrectly will need to practice 7th Grade IXL skills G.9 and G.12. I will be taking a score on the results from those sections at the end of the week. On Monday, we will continue working with box-and-whisker plots. On Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be exploring Absolute Mean Deviation. On Thursday, we will be reviewing our probability unit. On Friday, April 24th, we will be taking our summative assessment for the probability unit. Note: the MSTEP assessment is scheduled for April 28th-30th.
This week, students will work with both 7th and 8th grade topics. We will continue to work with probability, but we will focus on functions(8th grade) as well. I am planning on a summative assessment over the concepts that we have been working on during the first week in May. Note: the MSTEP assessment for math is scheduled for April 28th-30th.
