Mr. Skrocki's Science Class
Ms. DePaoli's Grade 4: Physical Science
4-PS3-1. Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
4-PS3-3. Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.
Project Lead The Way: *Vehicle Restraint Design*
Here are some pictures from our final project after learning about potential and kinetic energy as well as energy transfer during a collision. Students worked as a team to design and model a restraint system to protect a passenger (a real egg) in their car during a collision. Students were given a list of supplies that were available as well as a budget of $10 to buy their supplies. Once their vehicle and restraint systems were complete, they were put to the test as students took turns sending their vehicle down a ramp into a fixed object. All vehicles that had a successful run advanced to the next round which involved raising the height of the ramp. The students ALL did an excellent job working together to complete the t
Ms. Wright's Math Class
The Number System 6.NS
A. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division to divide fractions by fractions.
1. Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem.
B. Compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples.
2. Fluently divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm.
3. Fluently add, subtract, multiply, and divide multi-digit decimals using the standard algorithm for each operation.
Today students worked on reviewing for their Module 2 test on Monday. They were collaboratively working together to answer questions about division of fractions, multiplication of decimals, place value and word problems.
