What's going on in class?
This week in math we dove into module 4 working on Algebra. This starts with the basic processes used in solving algebraic equations. We will have our first quiz in this module next week. We will then be getting a more in depth look at solving more complex equations.
Please take a few moments to check skyward. Many students have missing assignments due to illness or other reasons. If you are missing an assignment, please pick up any copies or check schoology if it is an online assignment.
This week in social studies, we began learning about the Roman Empire. The students took a virtual field trip on Monday using Google Earth. For the rest of the week the students focused on the Geography of Ancient Rome. On Friday, the students took a quiz over the Geography of Rome. Next week the students will learn about the Rise of the Roman Republic and its transition to an Empire.
