This week, we reviewed chapter 7 using the Kahoot review game. We also studied our vocabulary flash cards. Students took the test on Tuesday. We started chapter 8 by learning about the building blocks of geometry – points, planes, lines, rays, and line segments.

Happy Spring! This week in math, we learned about scatter plots and how to choose an appropriate data display based on the type of data given. We also completed a class scatter plot activity where students measured their height and arm span. The chapter 7 test date is Tuesday, March 24. The study guide was handed out on Friday. We also made vocabulary flash cards that should be studied over the weekend.

This week in math, we learned about box-and-whisker plots. We learned lots of vocabulary with this section: median, lower quartile, upper quartile, lower extreme, upper extreme, and inter-quartile range. We also played a review game called Kahoot using the iPads. On Wednesday, we learned about line graphs and how they show data that changes over time. We did not have rotations on Thursday. The chapter 7 test is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, March 24.

This week in math, we reviewed mean, median, mode, range, and learned what an outlier is. Students completed a class survey project and presented their posters on Wednesday. We also learned about the differences between bar graphs and histograms. On Friday, we reviewed how to read and interpret circle graphs. The tentative chapter 7 test date is Tuesday, March 24.

This week in math, we took the math NWEA test, went over the chapter 6 study guide, and played a review game called Kahoot! We took the chapter 6 test on Wednesday and they were returned on Thursday. We started chapter 7 by learning about frequency tables, stem-and-leaf plots, and line plots. On Friday, students watched a video with the guest teacher on Fractals (irregular, repeating, geometric shapes found in the world around us).
