The Week of February 20, 2016

I hope you're ready for an exciting week of math and science work in our classroom.  I've planned some interesting lessons for you that I think you'll enjoy!

In math, we will be continuing our work with measures of central tendency.  You will get a chance to show these measures on graphs.  We will be working with the following:

Click on each of the tables/charts above to see an example of each.  You can get some more practice with mean, median, mode, and range doing the following (feel free to hand it in for me to check):

You will have homework Monday and Tuesday evening to complete.  A graphing quiz will take place Thursday.  Your weekly TenMarks assignment is due by Friday.  You will NOT have a Google Classroom Journal assignment this week.

I'm excited to start our final unit of study for the year: outer space!  Our science Montessori shelf is filled with new items for you to explore during your work period!  We will start our space studies by looking at famous astronomers in history.  In addition, we will be taking a look at the planets and other objects found in our own Solar System.  Use the following study guides to focus your thoughts on these topics.  You will have a vocabulary quiz Friday, and a test next Friday.

Famous Astronomers Study Guide

Our Solar System Study Guide and the Week's Vocabulary Words

This "Planetary Pathways" choice sheet can be used during your work time to guide your research.  Three choices are due Friday, March 3.

Have an out-of-this-world weekend!

Mr. Trent
