The Week of October 6, 2014

Welcome to the LAST week of the first term of school!  The theme this week will be tying up loose ends.  All first term work must be completed and handed in before you leave for the weekend.

In math, we will be continuing our work with ratios by investigating unit rates.  Use the following resource for an introduction to what we will be talking about.


You will have homework to complete Monday and Tuesday night.  Please also do your weekly Compass Learning assignment by Friday.  These (and your classwork assignments) will prepare you for a quiz on unit rates Thursday.  This is your last quiz of the term in math, so study hard to get the highest score you can.

A math journal will also be due Thursday Friday.  This will be assigned and submitted via the Google Classroom program.  We will have a lesson on using Google Classroom Monday.  This awesome resource will allow you to submit your journal electronically to me.

Our studies in science will include continued research with plate tectonics.  Your "Clean Your Plate" choice sheet is due Friday.  You will also have a final test on plate tectonics Friday.  These are your final grades for the term in science.

Continents Adrift:  An Introduction of Continental Drift and Plate Tectonics

Parent/teacher conferences have been scheduled and will begin the week of October 13.  Please let me know if you need a reminder of when your conference has been scheduled.

Finally, if you are planning on inviting your family to lunch on October 15, please submit your permission slip by Friday.

I'll see you Monday morning,

Mr. Trent
