The Week of November 2, 2015

"So dull and dark are the November days.

The lazy mist high up the evening curled,
And now the morn quite hides in smoke and haze;
The place we occupy seems all the world."
-   John Clare, November

This first week of November is shaping up to be a great one!  In math, we will be exploring exponents.  You may remember touching on this skill when we did prime factorization at the beginning of the year.  You will have some homework Monday and Tuesday evening to complete.  Also, be sure to choose two Compass Learning assignments to complete by Friday.  All of this work will help you prepare of a quiz on exponents Thursday.  While you prepare, you may wish to use this text as a resource:


Exponents


Our science lessons will continue to be about waves and currents.  I have a fun lab to share with you this week about surface currents.  I hope participating in this lab will help you understand how such currents are formed and the paths they follow around our beautiful blue planet.  As you conduct your research, be sure to complete the Seafood Feast sheet by Friday.  You can use your study guide to help you prepare for this week's science test (also on Friday).  Finally, this week's journal is about currents, as well.  Please complete it on Google Classroom sometime before Friday.

Please be safe if you plan on celebrating the spookiest day of the year this weekend!

Mr. Trent
