Math Update

We are finishing up our computation and problem solving units this week, however, this will be something we revisit on a daily/weekly basis throughout the year. Up to this point, I have been tutoring based on specific concepts. After Thanksgiving, I will have a schedule sent home with those who need to work on their problem solving skills in after school tutoring until Christmas break.

In unit 6, we will be learning about fractions and decimals.

Soon, we will no longer have access to IXL, but students will still be able to use Think Through Math for extra practice.

Energy Project

By now, your student should have chosen a project and brought home the questions that they need to answer. The answers to their questions are due on Wednesday, November 19th. They use can use LiveBinder to complete research for their project. Their completed project is due December 8th. If your student has lost their project board, project letter, or their questions, they can also be accessed on the LiveBinder. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for helping your student deepen their knowledge of energy. I know many of them are really excited about this project.
