6th Grade Advanced Math

Due to the short week, the students did not cover the following concepts this week. They will be introduced to them next week. The students will be introduced to the terms: tax, tip, mark up/mark down, gratuity, percent increase/percent decrease, commission, profit, margin, and discount. They will work on finding sales tax, the discount of total purchases, and much more. They will also be introduced to the Real World Experience project for unit 3.

3rd/4th Differentiated Engagement Block (DEB)

We began reading the novel, The Invention of Hugo Cabret. The students will be working on answering higher level thinking questions to go along with this story. They will also pretend they are a character in the story, and will be writing a diary from their point of view.

5th/6th Differentiated Engagement Block (DEB)

The students have been hard at work creating their Rube Goldberg machines. It has been a challenging task for the students, but they are doing a great job persevering through trial and error moments. We will be reflecting on our learning next week.
