Math and Science
We are beginning a short unit on Factors, Multiples and the Division of Large Numbers (non-decimal). Due to the nature of the holiday season, we are missing out an quite a bit of instructional time due to assemblies and performances, but I am hoping to get another short test in before the semester ends.
Due to the assembly this morning we were unable to cover the concepts planned for the day and i have adjusted the homework assignment and linked it to the website under math.
In science, we are learning about sound waves and convection currents. We will be finishing up labs from last week on potential and kinetic energy and starting a round of labs on convection currents Tuesday!
