Math Update

Week of February 15th

This Week in Math

This week we begin our 5.8 Measurement unit with area and perimeter. Students will investigate these measures and develop a formula for finding the area and perimeter of rectangles.

Students will also continue to practice mean, median, mode and range through independent activities. Due to the snow days, the 5.15/5.16 Graphing and Statistics Test will be moved to next week. Study guides are due next Tuesday.

Digital Learning Day

On Wednesday, February 17th, we celebrate Digital Learning Day! While we use many forms of digital learning in our instruction every day, this day is set aside to focus on how digital learning can engage students and strengthen learning experiences. In math we will focus on using Create A Graph to display weather data. Students will be introduced to the program and will use it for their graphing projects this quarter.
