We continued to practice finding measures of variation.  Students should now be able to find and explain the measures of central tendency and the measures of variation.

After checking the homework and discussing common errors, the students began to work on additional area of triangle practice which they will finish for homework.

Reports cards went home today.  There are important attachments with the report cards.  Students should have their parent sign the report card and return them to their advisory teachers next week.

Homework is Extra Practice page 25 Section A problems 1-10.  These are located in the Blue section at the back of the textbook.  You will be finding Area of Parallelograms and a missing dimension when given the area.  Make sure to use the 3 steps (formula, substitution and answer with appropriate units).

We took a look at the ACT Sandbox practice questions and the tools available when taking the test.  All students can access the practice at http://tn.actaspire.org  The user name is math6 and the password is actaspire.  I encourage each student to practice the questions.

The ACT Aspire Math test will be given on Wednesday, April 5th.

We will have a Spring Fling on Friday, April 7th.

The homework from Monday will be checked tomorrow.

We listened to a Statistical Questions song which reminded us that statistical questions must have variability in their answers.  You also want a specific population to answer the question.  It is difficult to ask a question with the pronoun “you” or “your” as part of the question.  We then completed a statistical question sort, where students divided the 20 questions into 2 groups 1) Statistical or 2) not statistical.

With Geometry, we discussed finding the area of rectangles and parallelograms.  We completed an exploration activity that proved the areas of rectangles and parallelograms are similar.  We worked example problems page 525 1-6.
