Hello 6th grade families,
I hope this email finds you well. Earth week is Mon 4/18 through Fri 4/22. Prior to then, if you have 1-2 extra pieces of firewood at home, please have your student stack them at the outdoor entrance to our classroom. We will be using the wood for a grade band campfire and cookout during Earth week. Thank you in advance!
Students in Math A will complete a study guide in class on Monday and take the Module 4 Assessment on Friday, 4/15. Current studies include finding missing angle values and solving multi-step equations. I encourage all students to practice and review these skills for mastery.
Students in Math B are learning to calculate the probability of simple and compound events. Next Thursday, 4/14, students will complete a mid-module assessment for Module 5. After, students will evaluate statistical questions. I encourage all students to practice and review these skills for mastery.
Students used proportional relationships related to constant speed, to write linear equations with two variables. They organized the solutions to the equation in a table and plotted the points on a coordinate plane. Students also graphed horizontal and vertical lines. They looked at equations in standard form, ax+by=c, and determined values for a and b.
Students continue to study Structures of Life. This week, our focus consisted of Dichotomous Keys. Students learned that Dichotomous Keys are a valuable scientific tool that assist in identifying specific organisms. Next week, students will study the characteristics of organisms.
