Wiley Weekly 4/29
Mrs. Wiley's Crew
Dear UMAC Parents,
Next week our team will take their final MAP reading and math test of the school year! I am confident that we will have much to celebrate during these final MAP tests! I love meeting with the students at the end of the year to conference about their progress made during the school year. You will receive a copy of your child’s MAP scores, as well as goal sheets at the end of the school year.
Our team will now test on Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:00am - 10:00am. The MAP tests are first thing on Tuesday and Wednesday morning so please be sure your child gets a good night’s rest and eats a healthybreakfast!
Thanks so much for your continued support as we finish up our spring testing.
Old Friends: This week our old friends learned two new formulas to find the circumference and area of circles. Ask your child about the relationship between diameter and the circumference of a circle! Unit 10 assessments will come home on Monday for your review. Next week, after all the MAP testing, we will begin unit 11 which focuses on volume of cylinders and cones.
New Friends: This week new friends did a hands-on graphing activity. Our project included collecting, analyzing, interpreting data, and probability. We learned that graphs are not only valuable instruments for communicating data, they can also be tools for stimulating discussion in promoting mathematical thinking.
