Have a great week off!!
Math 6/7: Students reviewed area of two dimensional figures to then apply it to nets of three dimensional figures to solve for surface area.

Math 6/7: Students continued to investigate volume. Students built two rectangular prisms out of same size piece of paper and filled it with popcorn. They set one inside the other to see if they had the same volume. What did they figure out?
- Complete Popcorn Prisms anyone?
- Continue to review unit 3

Popcorn prisms anyone?
Review of unit 3- a study guide and answer key are provided on yesterday’s blog. Students will continue to review by working some problems from each section and check their answers. Students will evaluate their progress and decide if they need to continue to do more practice on all problems or practice in specific areas where they may have needed more reinforcement.
Have a good night!
Math 6/7: Students reviewed their favorite mistakes from their unit 10 test. This also provided review for Friday’s cumulative test which was announced on Monday of last week. This test will be over units 2,3, 9, and 10. You were given a unit 2 study guide with answer key to review. Tonight you will review unit 3 study guide with answer key. Complete forms 18 this week as well as complete page 233 in your MSG.

Math 6/7: Students reviewed composite figures. Students discovered the area formula for trapezoids. They worked in pairs to see how the formula is derived. Students will continue working on composite figures and test corrections.

Have a great weekend!!! Maybe it will snow!!
Math 6/7: I have a professional learning today on campus, so I will be in the building but some of you will have a substitute. Be sure to be respectful and read carefully so you know what to do.
Follow the assignments exactly in the order they are given. What you don’t finish in class, will be homework.
Assignments: Do in order
- 1. Forms
- 2. Khan Academy- assignments are on your account
- 3. NCTM link on noticing differences and similarities in trapezoids, triangles, and quadrilaterals. Read the directions. Do not skim them and then say you don’t understand. It takes time to process.
- 4. Investigating area of triangles
- 5. Area of irregular figures
- 6. Lure of the Labyrinth- you should have already set up an account based on the step by step instructions given on the blog several days ago. Go to the site and choose some games/puzzles.
Don’t forget to work on these at home if you don’t get to them in class. Remember, read each task carefully so you know what the objective of each should be…meaning, what do you need to be able to do when you complete the task.
Have a great night!! I will see you tomorrow!
Cumulative test on Friday February 14th over units 2, 3, 9, and 10. I will post assignments to review over the next week and half to prepare students.
Math 6/7: Students started Unit 5 on Geometry today. We looked at area of quadrilaterals and triangles and how the composition and decomposing of these combined figures can help to find area. Students took guided notes as well as worked in groups to decompose figures.
- Decomposing polygons to find area
- Review for cumulative- go through unit 2 study guide and choose several problems. Work them out and check your answers. If you need more review, please continue to practice more problems on the guide.

Cumulative test on units 2,3,9 and 10 on Friday February 14th. Go ahead and pull out your study guides for those units and begin review. If you don’t have them please, please go to the blog and retrieve them. The answer keys are there as well.
On Thursday Mrs. Flint will be in a professional learning on Dickerson campus. I will not be in the classroom and you will have a substitute. You will use technology that day, so please bring your own device. If you don’t have one, I will have laptops available.
Math 6/7: Students presented their wearable technology project and showed how it related to scaling. Each student turned in their brainstorming and research paper.

Math 6/7: Students took a test on unit 10. When complete two practice sheets were given on using proportions to convert between units and practicing conversion between fraction, decimal, and percent. These are two areas where students need additional practice. As part of the homework over the weekend, students will create an account on Lure of the Labyrinth. I have provided a link to the site. This is a pre-algebra site created by folks at MIT and has students use critical thinking as it applies to math concepts.

- Converting fractions, decimals, and percents
