Our class will begin our Unit 2 ELA curriculum on Oct. 15th. Each unit has an essential question that students reflect upon as they read excerpts from different texts.
In math, we are currently working on a number of fundamental concepts, such as:
- Greatest Common Factors - Least Common Multiple - Ratios - Creating Equivalent Ratios - Solving word problems with ratios and rates - Writing Expressions with one variable - Solving expressions with on variable - Exploring units of measurement
All of the above skills will enable us to get to work on our math project: building scale sized roller coasters where 1/4"= 1'
Unit 1 was completed on Oct. 12 and we learned about a variety of different types of government. We also had an opportunity to create a problem solution essay as well as an argument essay.
