Hello Kiddos,

Hopefully you are enjoying a wonderful spring break!  There is no homework, so enjoy your vacation.  Come back to school rested, organized, and ready to finish strong.

See you soon!

Hey Kiddos,

Today in class you built data displays.  The assignment you are working on is a test grade.  You are allowed to use you notes, and you are allowed to use a calculator when needed.  I will be giving all of you 15 minutes of class time tomorrow to finish, so if you think you are going to need more time than that please work on it a little bit tonight.  I want to remind you that the rubric you were given in class has all the directions you need to follow to earn an “A” – please read carefully.

See you tomorrow!

Mrs. Rudd

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we took the data display test.  There is no homework tonight, other than to make sure you have your MSG for tomorrow – you will be constructing data displays. 🙂

Hello Mathies! Today in class we reviewed a bit more for the tests you are taking this week.  Tomorrow’s test is NOT open note. The quizizz will help you study. https://quizizz.com/join Game code: 749761.

Thursday you will be taking an OPEN NOTE test building data displays.  Make sure you know how to organize intervals, make a histogram, make a dot/line plot, and as a bonus you can make a box and whisker plot.

See you tomorrow!

Hello Mathies,

Today in class we finished MSG notes on data distributions and started a review SCOOT for the data display test this week.  Make sure you look at Friday’s post for the quizizz game code so you can review as needed.

Homework tonight is p. 799, #1-5.  Some of the questions are straight forward, and some are worded a little funny.  Focus on describing the shape of the data displays.  Are there peaks, gaps, clusters?  Is the data skewed or symmetrical?  Don’t worry about “appropriate measures,” we aren’t studying that. 🙂

See you tomorrow!

Hello Kiddos,

There is no homework this weekend, but I do want to remind you that there is a test  on data displays next week.  The first part of the test is multiple choice, and will not be open note.  Here is a link to a quizizz to help you study. https://join.quizizz.com/ The game code is 749761.  The second part of the test will be open note, and you will be asked to construct a dot plot, a frequency table and histogram, and there is a bonus if you accurately construct a box-and-whisker plot.  Those tests are Wednesday and Thursday next week.

Have a nice weekend.  Enjoy the sunshine. 🙂

Hello Kiddos,

Today in class we learned about how to make a box-and-whisker plot from a set of data.  Homework tonight is to complete the box-and-whisker plots that you started in class.  Here is a little help:

#2.

Minimum: 2

Maximum: 25

Q2: 11

Q1: 5

Q3: 18

 

#3

Minimum: 1

Maximum: 25

Q2: 9

Q1: 5

Q3: 21

 

Hopefully that help you accurately construct the data displays.  Remember, box-and-whisker plots are a way to connect 5 points of data from a set of numbers.  Use your MSGs. 🙂

Hello Mathies,

I had a fun day with you today, rolling dice and constructing histograms.  Tonight’s homework is p. 781, #13-28.  If you did not finish the histogram in class please finish that at home since it will be a classwork grade.

See you tomorrow.  Please bring your MSG, we will be adding notes to it.

Hello Math Brains,

Sorry for the last post, I lost track of the afternoon.  Today in class we learned hoe to make a histogram.  Homework tonight is p. 779 (I think, I am not looking at the board right now), #1-8.  I am 99% sure that is the correct page number, just make sure there are histograms on the homework page.

See you tomorrow! 🙂

Hello, mathies.  I enjoyed our time together today.  The “best kid in the world” attendance game had a winner in 3 out of my 5 classes (60%), which made the day kind of fun.

We are working with line and dot plots.  Here is a link to a video with a quick reminder of how to make a dot plot, just in case you need to see it again.  Dot Plots

Homework tonight is to finish the dot plot practice you were given in class.  If you needed to take home your classwork to finish it that is fine, just make sure you bring it back.  It is the first graded assignment of the 4th quarter.

See you tomorrow.  Please make sure you have a dry erase marker with you every day. 🙂
