The Week of September 21, 2015

Can you feel the change of seasons in the air?  Well, maybe not too much here in Savannah, but this Wednesday is the first day of Fall!  Let's celebrate another change in seasons together!

This week we will be working with ratios in math class.  You will quickly see that ratios look a lot like fractions...and they act a lot like them, too!  We can use your knowledge of fractions to help us understand equivalent ratios.  We will also get some practice graphing the ratios we create on coordinate planes.  This all may sound a bit intense, but I think you'll find that your previous lessons have set you up for success with this skill.  The following video from www.learnzillion.com will show you how it's done.


You will have math homework to complete Monday and Tuesday evening.  You will also have a math quiz Thursday.  Your homework and classwork will help you prepare for this quiz.  I also have a journal for you to complete on Google Classroom.  Please respond to the journal before you leave Friday.

In science, we will dig into the study of plate tectonics!  Use this study guide to help your prepare for you vocabulary quiz (this Friday) and your test (next Friday).



Use the "Clean Your Plate" choice sheet to help guide you in your research of plate tectonics.  It is due Friday, October 2.




I've updated your classroom calendar to reflect this upcoming week's work.  Please use it and your planner to keep track of all your responsibilities.

Have a marvelous weekend,
Mr. Trent
