These are the notes students took today on Dot Plots:
We practiced creating two dot plots together to make sure everyone understood the process!
HOMEWORK for Monday, February 29th
NO MATH HOMEWORK TONIGHT!!!!
1st period does not have homework!!! You guys did this sheet on Tuesday night for HW!!!
3rd, 5th, 6th, and 7th have homework tonight!!!!
We are pushing through to the finish for our project this week! Students have three major components to our project: a chart of MMMR calculations, a letter to parents, and a bar graph displaying the data they calculated. All three components are due tomorrow! We’ve had 4 full days of working on this project…..some folks have worked very diligently and are just about finished with their work; other folks have socialized and chatted and are now figuring out they are in a pickle! Check with your student to see where they stand on this project!
1st and 3rd period were assigned homework for tonight:
5th, 6th, and 7th will have this homework for Wednesday Night!!
Watch the weather this evening & keep yourself safe!
Today was the second day of our “Attack of the Mean, Median, Mode, and Range” project/webquest! Students were given a rubric and we discussed, in great detail, the components of the project and the type of work I am expecting from them! Here are the components we talked about in class:
This is such a great project as it incorporates technology, math, AND a writing component into one assignment…..something you don’t find everyday in math! This assignment will be counted as a GOLD grade because it is so involved and lengthy. What a wonderful opportunity for students to show their proficiency with a skill besides another test!
NO HOMEWORK FOR MONDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 22ND!!!!
HOMEWORK FOR THURSDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 18TH
Here’s the reminder sheet in case you need a refresher on how to calculate the mean, median, mode, and range:
We are starting a webquest on statistics Friday but I will have the rolling laptop cart for our students to use. Students will need to bring in their devices (not Smartphones) in on Monday and possibly Tuesday. I’ll keep you updated!
Continuing our focus on Measures of Central Tendency! Calculating mean, median, mode, and range are our practice skills for homework.
If you need a refresher on how to calculate these measures, here you go:
HOMEWORK FOR WEDNESDAY NIGHT, FEBRUARY 17TH
GOLD TEST TOMORROW on The Percent Proportion!!!!!!!
Students worked on a classwork assignment that thoroughly tested their knowledge of how to calculate either the “IS” or the “OF” or the “%” depending on what the question asked for! The formula stays the same….check it out!
Students need to complete BOTH the classwork from today and the Study Guide as well! Please look over the attached documents to ensure your student’s understanding of these skills!
Remember to sell those Coupon Books!!!!
Monday: Finding the “IS”
Tuesday: Finding the “%”
The skill of calculating the Percent Proportion is the same as we learned on Monday. However, the focus of the calculation changed today! Today we learned how to find the percent one number is of another number.
Same formula: is/of = %/100
Refer to your class notes in your math notebook if you need additional help!
We are looking forward to a GOLD TEST this Friday, February 12th on The Percent Proportion!!!!
Friday’s Fraction, Decimal, Percent test was a success! For the most part, students showed proficiency in converting between fractions, decimals, and percents!
So…….we’ve moved on to The Percent Proportion! We have a very specific way to teach students to find the percent of a number! Extensive notes were taken today during class, including many examples. Please refer to your student’s notebook in order to help them with their homework.
This homework is front and back and I definitely want students to show their work!!!
