Hello Kiddos,

It was wonderful to see you today.  Thank you for being well behaved when I was out Monday. 🙂

Today in class we…

Math 6 (Blocks 1 & 2): Started exploring area by building our own set of Tangrams.  We used the known area of one of the Tangrams to determine the area of other shapes in the set.  Your homework tonight is to finish the front of the Tangram area worksheet.

Science (Block 3): Finished the constructed responses from the Dynamic Earth test and did a lab/demonstration where we looked at the distribution of Earth’s water.  There is no homework tonight.

AC Math (Blocks 4 & 5): Quickly reviewed area of singular parallelograms and triangles.  We started MSG notes on composite shapes and area.  Homework tonight is p. 679, #11, 12, and 14.

See you tomorrow!

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we…

Math 6 (Blocks 1 & 2): Completed the inequality SCOOT to review for the inequality test.  In block one we ran out of time while were checking them, so you will find the answers below.  I am also linking the problems so you can check your work.  Your test on Monday is not open note, so make sure you are comfortable solving these independently.

Hello math and science brains,

Today in class we….

Math 6 (Blocks 1 & 2): Finished MSG notes on direct variation in class.  Block 1 made more progress than block 2, so your homework is different.

Block 1 – Please finish the 4 graphs I gave you in class for homework.  We will check and go over them tomorrow.

Block 2 – Please finish your MSG notes.  You will need it to complete the graphs that will be homework a different night.  Use the picture below to help you.

Block 3: Finished the tectonic plate vocabulary.  You will have a vocabulary quiz tomorrow, so use your notes, the pretest, and the quizizz link to study.  The quiz is not open note.
