The Week of February 6, 2017

It's the first full week of February, and our week is chock-full of lessons and fun!

In math, we will move on from geometry to statistics.  We will start by find the mean, median, and mode of a set of numbers.  This may be a skill you have worked on in the past!  My goal for you is to look closely at a set of numbers and see how its mean, median, mode, and range are affected by adding or deleting a number.  This is an important concept to understand especially as you continue to come to terms with how classroom grades are calculated.

You will have homework Monday and Tuesday evening to complete.  Make sure you are also keeping up with your weekly and Google Classroom requirements (you will NOT have a Google Classroom Journal assignment this week).  Your classwork, homework, journal, and Tenmarks will help you prepare for a quiz on mean, median, mode, and range this Thursday.

Check out the great "Dunk Tank" game for some practice with mean, median, and mode!

This week we will finish up our research on weather patterns.  I will talk to you a bit more about seasons, and you will get a chance to learn more about them using your "Meteorology Matrix" choice sheet.  Please complete at least three assignments by Friday.  This Friday will also be your test on weather patterns.  Your study guide is the best tool you can use to prepare for the test.

Have a wonderful weekend!
Mr. Trent
