What a great start to the new school year! Students have been working very hard on math concepts and connecting them to the real world, as well as developing friendship skills and learning about God’s Revelation in Religion.
Let’s take a closer look...
6th Grade Math:
We are just finishing up with ratio tables and beginning to prepare for our first test. Students will be tested on GCF’s, LCM’s, ratios, and unit rates. After the Chapter 1 test, students will begin learning about equivalent ratios and applying their knowledge of ratios and rates to real-world situations.
6th Grade Religion:
After completing the Friendship project, students have been presenting their work to the class. I have been very impressed with all of the student’s work and their understanding of what it means to be a friend. Students have also taken their first test on Chapter 1, God’s Revelation. We will begin taking a closer look at the bible, in which students will learn how to locate books, chapters, and verses. This will led us into Chapter 2, God’s Creation.
7th Grade Math:
At the end of September, students finished learning all of the concepts and skills for Chapter 1, which includes rates, unit rates, complex fractions, conversions, and proportional and nonproportional relationships. With the understanding of rates and proportional relationships, students will apply their knowledge to Chapter 2 topics, such as rate of change, slope, direct variation, and real-world situations.
8th Grade Math:
Students are finishing up with reviewing for their Chapter 1 test, which includes the topics of rational numbers, monomials, and exponents. In Chapter 2, students will be exposed to real-world problems revolved around scientific notation, roots, and real numbers, which builds off of Chapter 1 material.
