A Little Bit About Me
What's Up in Math and Science?
This week in math, we are finishing Topic 2. We have been learning about place value with decimals into the tenths, hundredths and thousandths place. We have also been adding and subtracting decimals and are working with numbers now as large as billions. I am working on problem solving strategies with your students during IE time, and we will be having our first test covering Topics 1 and 2 next Friday, September 11th.
In science, we have been introducing how to make detailed observations and formulate a testable question. This week, we will start conducting some experiments to answer questions such as "how does flooding affect plant growth?", and "how does a cruise ship stay afloat in the ocean?". We do not have a science test scheduled yet.
It's going to be an exciting year!!
