The Week of March 2, 2015

Another month has come and gone....welcome to the first week of March!  We are entering the last two weeks of the third term, and I have a number of lessons I'd like to present to you.

In math we will continue to work with measures of central tendency.  I will show you a useful way to present data using a box and whisker plot.  Here is the procedure to follow to make one:

You will have some box and whisker homework Monday and Tuesday evening to complete.  In addition, please complete your weekly journal and Compass Learning assignment by Friday.  You will have a quiz on box and whisker plots Thursday.

In science, we will be blasting off to research how the sun, Earth, and moon interact with each other as they travel through our amazing universe.  Here is a copy of your notes that you can use to help you understand everything from the makeup of the sun, the phases of the moon, and eclipses.

You will have a vocabulary quiz Friday, March 6th on the following words and moon phases:

Use this choice sheet to guide your research.  The completed choices will be due Friday, March 13.

The last progress reports of the term will be sent home Tuesday.  Please review, sign, and return them to your child's homeroom teacher.  All 2nd term work is due the last day of the term (Friday, March 13).  Please check PowerSchool Parent Access to see if you are missing any work.

Have a great weekend,
Mr. Trent
