A message from the principal…

This week we are spotlighting a few of our classes related to what we are currently doing at the middle level…

Technology Applications:  Currently students are working through a Microsoft Office Simulation using their learned skills in Google Drive to create similar documents, spreadsheets, and presentations using Microsoft Office.  The last project they completed was using SketchUp, a 3D modeling computer program for a wide range of drawing applications such as architectural, interior design, civil and mechanical engineering, film, and video game design.  Students completed a home design utilizing their name initial, an office building, and a shopping center of their own design with required criteria.

8th Grade Math: This past week we learned how to construct, interpret, and find the line of best fit or trend line of a scatter plot.  We used spaghetti to help with trend lines.  Next week we will write equations to fit the scatter plot.  Scatter Plots will be what they will use later to do a project called, “Barbee Bungee Jump”.  In this project groups of students will work together to figure out how many rubber bands that they will need to give Barbee the closest jump down the stairwell without hitting her head.  To do this they experiment, gather data, make a scatter plot, and write a linear equation to help them decide how many rubber bands to attach to Barbie’s feet.  Other objectives I plan to cover are:   linear or nonlinear equations, systems of equations, story graphs, and probability.  In Algebra1, we will soon take a test over factoring polynomials.  Next, we will be doing a short unit on scatter plots and writing equations.  We are going to go over the practice test we took for the EOC.  We will be going over some other practice tests as well to prepare for the EOC test coming soon. Students will be doing a unit on graphing quadratics and simplifying radical expressions, too.
