Math- Mrs. Williams
We have started working on the Real Number System. See the weekly progress report for grades and for weekly agenda. We have covered square and cube roots and classifying real numbers. We will move into fractions and decimals (repeating and terminating) and rational versus irrational numbers this week.
Next week, we will have a mini unit on Scientific Notation that will be done through personal learning. Students will be able to work at their pace and see what personal learning is all about!

Reminder: No School on Monday, February 18th. We will have a short quiz on February 19th.

Thanks for checking into team nine.
Last week was the week of tests and quizzes. Grades should be pretty much all wrapped up in my class for the 6 weeks, I will continue to grade missing work and test corrections, but I won't add anymore assignments, outside of the weekly warm ups.
This week we started to study genetics! This should hopefully spark some great conversations at home about different genes and traits that your family possesses.
Some good traits to look at with your son or daughter include,
HItchhikers thumb or not?
Long second toe?
Attached ear lobes?
Comparing traits can be fun to see where different traits came from.
Thanks for your time.
US History- Mr. Janner
Speaking of 80% assignments, our DBQ essays are turning out nicely. Student were challenged to analyze documents on the Gold Rush and answer the question, "Did the Gold Rush have a positive or negative impact on California?" I have graded almost all of 2nd and 3rd Hour essays, so I will move onto 5th and 8th Hours' shortly. I am taking my time grading these so I can leave accurate and meaningful feedback for our students. If you see a asterisk in the gradebook, your students HAS turned in the essay, but I haven't graded it yet. If you see 50% grade, your student did not turn in the essay and it is passed due.
As soon as we finish with our Industrial Revolution Unit, we will move on to the events that lead up to the Civil War!
Language Arts- Mrs. Murphy
Starting next week in Language Arts, students will be reading Feed by M.T. Anderson. This futuristic, dystopian novel will help us explore our big Unit 3 Essential Question even further: "What role should ethical considerations play in the advancement of technology?" Talk to your student about this text at home!
