Sixth Grade: In our sixth grade math class students have been working a lot with the operations with fractions, finishing up our unit with a Thanksgiving Feast. Students will be finalizing their recipes that correspond with their given scenario cards. Moving forward, we will be working more with patterns and equations. Students will be solving for variables within given patterns, creating tables and solving word problems.

Seventh Grade: In our seventh grade math class students have be working on conversions of fractions, decimals and percentages. Students will be mastering their knowledge of operations with decimals over the next couple of weeks. As an extension of prior knowledge students will be introduced to and working with negative exponents as well this month.

Eighth Grade: In our eighth grade math class students have finalized their stage three of their budgeting projects. Students have finished up their presentation of the budget sheets. Everyone worked very hard and seemed to enjoy this project. The upcoming units will consist of working a lot with equations. Students will be reviewing solving for equations, as well as numerical and algebraic expressions. A new mathematical concept students will be familiarizing themselves with is the properties of equality.

In our sixth grade math class we have been working a lot with decimals and estimation. We are expanding our knowledge of multiplication to multiplying with decimals. To implement this mathematical concept to the holiday season students are creating their own Holiday Sweater. Students are given a budget and requirements for their sweater. They will be taking what they have learned about multiplying decimals and using that when renting materials to construct their sweater. In the upcoming lessons, instead of dividing with remainders students will be learning to divide with decimals.

In our seventh grade class we are working on equations. Not only one step but two step equations with decimals. Aside for this, students are working on their personalized timeline project. Students are creating a timeline of their life where they are required to label the events using positive and negative integers with decimals. In upcoming lessons, we will be working a lot with  fractions and the different operations/rules.

In our eighth grade class we are working on solving equations with variables on both sides. Students will be practicing how to evaluate and graph inequalities in the upcoming month. Everyone worked so hard and enjoyed their budgeting project, I have introduced them to their next project of creating their dream business. This ongoing project has been broken into stages. Students are beginning stage one where they are deciding on a business and finding a piece of property to build/renovate their business on.

In our sixth grade class, we are currently working with equations, where students are solving for missing variables and drawing models to represent expressions. Students are also working hard on their projects. They are planning their “Dream Vacation” which includes travel expenses, airfare, food, attractions and hotel costs. This project connects closely to real life which involves several mathematical concepts such as adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing decimals.

In our seventh grade class, we are working with inequalities. Students are working with graphing inequalities, as well as, understanding and modeling each property associated with each.  A previous lesson on formulas has been implemented in an ongoing project in our class. Students are creating their “Dream House,” where they are drawing blueprints of each room. For each room students have to find the area and perimeter. These drawings will be drawn to scale using graph paper where ¼ inch represents 1 foot. The final step of this project will be designing their house using a computer program on their new chromebooks.

In our eighth grade class, we have finalized and finished the first part of our budgeting project. The students have all worked extremely hard on these and for the most part, have seemed to enjoyed them. After completing the final budget sheet, students will be drawing “life” cards where they will be adopting a child, a pet or finding a significant other. From this point, they will have to adjust their budget to each given scenario. In our upcoming lessons students will be working a lot with real numbers. Students will be able to accurately solve and estimate perfect squares and square roots of numbers.
