This week, we only had two days of rotations due to M-STEP testing. In math class, we completed the math M-STEP classroom activity that prepared the students for the performance task in the computer lab. We also learned how 100 Chart Games work and created our own! We will finish presenting them next Wednesday, which is our only rotation day next week.

This week in math, we made vocabulary flash cards for chapters 9 & 10. We completed a study guide and reviewed with the marker boards. The test over 9.3, 9.4, 10.1, 10.2, and 10.4 was on Thursday. That was the last test of the year. We will still have at least one quiz. The rest of the year will be spent reviewing and taking the M-STEP test. On Friday, we completed an M-STEP practice session during math class.

This week in math, we learned how to find the area of parallelograms, triangles, and trapezoids. We also learned about 3-dimensional figures such as polyhedrons (prisms & pyramids), cones, and cylinders. We completed a lab to learn about the volume of a rectangular prism. We learned about surface area of rectangular prisms as well. The next test is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 14. It will cover sections 9.3, 9.4, 10.1, 10.2, and 10.4.

This week in math, we played the review game, Kahoot, using the iPads. We took the chapter 8 test on Tuesday and a notebook quiz on Thursday. We spent the remainder of the time working on an in-class project called the Polygon Picture Project. Next week, we will begin chapter 9. The next test is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, May 14. It will cover sections 9.3, 9.4, 10.1, 10.2, and 10.4.

This week in math, we learned how to classify triangles and quadrilaterals. We also learned how to find the sum of the interior angles of any polygon. On Thursday, we made vocabulary flash cards and on Friday, we completed the study guide. The chapter 8 test is Tuesday, April 28. We will also have a notebook quiz on Thursday, April 30. Next week after the test, we will be completing a Polygon Picture Project, so there will not be much homework.

This week in math, we learned about parallel, perpendicular, and skew lines. We also learned about the special relationships formed when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal. Students took a quiz over sections 8.1 – 8.3 on Thursday and they were returned on Friday. The tentative test date for the chapter 8 test is Tuesday, April 28. We will make vocabulary flashcards and get a study guide the week before the test.
