We will be completing a 3D Figure Project in class this next week with partner groups. The students will be planning, creating, and presenting their projects for a gold assessment grade to be given next week. I have attached the guidelines and rubric each student will receive today in class. We are allowing the students to bring arts and crafts materials from home, but we are requesting that no one bring spray paint. I will be able to hold each group’s project and materials until we have presentations at the beginning of next week. The 3D Figure Projects will be displayed in the media center after presentations.
There will be no homework this week due to the projects. All work done to each group’s project must be completed at school. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
3D Figure Project Guidelines and Rubric
We will complete a thorough review in class on Thursday to prepare for our gold assessment this Friday. The assessment will cover perimeter, area, surface area, 3-D figures, and nets. Your child should bring home his or her review for additional practice if needed.
We continued with surface area and nets today in class. The homework is attached below.
HW April 19 Surface Area and Nets
We will have our second gold test of the nine weeks this Friday on area, perimeter, surface area, and 3D figures.
We are reviewing area and perimeter and the various formulas today in class. Today’s classwork and homework is attached below.
HW April 17 Area and Perimeter
We will be testing the math ACT ASPIRE this week. The following is when each period will be administered the assessment:
Tuesday, April 11: 5th period and 3rd period
Wednesday, April 12: 2nd period and 7th period
Please make sure your child gets plenty of rest the night before the assessment and eats a great breakfast the morning of the assessment.
There will be no homework this week due to ACT ASPIRE assessments in math and reading.
We began our unit on geometry yesterday by graphing polygons on a coordinate plane. We will explore 3-Dimensional shapes today and their characteristics. The homework is attached below.
HW April 4 3-Dimensional Shape Chart
We are investigating the statistical topic of creating histograms and box and whisker plots using mean, median, mode and range this week in math as well as reviewing our portfolios for May Student Led Conferences. We will not have any homework this week, but we will resume with homework the week after spring break. After spring break, we will begin our unit in geometry on surface area and volume.
We will have an Open Notebook Gold Assessment on mean, median, mode, range, and dot plots on Friday, March 17, 2017. We will not send home a study guide since the students will have access to their notebooks for the assessment.
We learned how to create a line/dot plot today in class. Tonight’s homework involved creating a dot plot and then finding the mean, median, mode, and range from the data display on the dot plot. The homework is attached below.
