Regular Math: We begin our statistics unit this week! Students will learn measures of central tendencies and measures of spread. Students will take part 1 of the statistics test before spring break.
LOOK FOR MATH MAINTENANCE THIS WEEK!
Advanced Math - We will complete our statistics unit this week with MAD and box-plots (aka box and whisker plots). Students will complete the performance task on Friday. Our unit test will be next Tuesday.
POW: There will be no POWs for this unit.
This week we will begin our unit on the Earth, moon, and sun. We will be learning about the phases of the moon and solar and lunar eclipses. Students will do an activity to help them understand why we only see one side of the moon!
We are working on European History. Students have their vocabulary and should be reviewing it daily.
This is a challenging unit and I encourage the students to ask questions.
I have made the commitment to learn something new everyday and I have challenged my students to do the same. Join us in our challenge and we will all get better educated!!
