Have a good weekend!
After careful consideration due to an inservice meeting I had today as well as the snow day on Tuesday the math test will be postponed again until Wednesday 3/2.
Have a good weekend!
Due to yesterday's snowday the 8th grade math test has been postponed until Monday.
8th grade students have math homework tonight. Also, the strengths section of their portfolio is due tomorrow.
Friday the strengths section of 8th grade math portfolio's need to be finished.
Students also have a math test on Friday over systems of equations.
8th grade students are being given a study guide today for the science test they will be having next Wednesday, 3/2. The study guide needs to be completed by this Friday to make sure that they have correct answers to study for the test.
6th grade Science started a new unit over the geologic history of the Earth
I hope you all have a great February vacation! Don't forget that the strengths section of your math portfolios need to be finished the Friday we get back from vacation, 2/26/16.
Enjoy your time off! :)
Below are some helpful links for what we are learning in math right now. We are on our systems of equations unit learning about the different ways to solve them such as by graphing, substitution, and elimination. Kahn Academy has great videos that give step by step of how to solve each type of problem.
Elimination Method: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra-basics/core-algebra-systems/core-algebra-systems-tutorial/v/solving-systems-of-equations-by-elimination
Substitution Method: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-eighth-grade-math/cc-8th-systems-topic/cc-8th-systems-with-substitution/v/the-substitution-methodhttps://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-eighth-grade-math/cc-8th-systems-topic/cc-8th-systems-with-substitution/v/the-substitution-method
Graphing Method: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-eighth-grade-math/cc-8th-systems-topic/cc-8th-systems-graphically/v/graphings-systems-of-equations
Side Note: Not only does Kahn Academy allow for watching videos to help learn these skills but they also have practice problems as well. Feel free to look around the site and use what is helpful for you. We have used this for class quite a bit and I feel that it can be very helpful for the students.
1. Come to class ready to learn.
