7th Grade: Module 12 and 13: Probability


5/2 - 5/27: The final two modules of the year revolve around probability--experimental and theoretical. We will finish the year with a culminating final during the last week of school (5/31-6/3).


4/18-4/28: We are continuing the topic of samples and populations, analyzing box and dot plots in a more qualitative way. We will analyze the shape, center, and spread of the data to make predictions. 

3/29-4/15: We will complete review projects and online intervention to prepare for the Forward Exam and minimize loss of instructional time due to altered schedules.

3/9-3/18: Module 10 is about statistics, specifically populations and sample. We will analyze data and make inferences about larger groups. This unit will continue after students return from break. There will be a mid-point quiz on Wednesday, 3/16.

2/15-3/4: Module 9 is a longer unit focused on many aspects of geometry. We will begin with circumference and area of circles. Once we master this concept, we will move on to the area of composite figures (these are odd shapes that combine several basic geometric shapes). The last sections involve volume and surface area, which can get very challenging to keep straight. Students will have a resource formula sheet they can use on the test. 

2/8-2/12: Module 8 is a very short section. We are going to focus on how to construct angles and on angle relationships (supplementary, complementary etc.). This module is preparing us for Module 9, which is focused on geometry (circles, composite shapes, surface area and volume).

1/20-2/2: Module 7 is focused on inequalities (i.e. less than, more than). We will begin with adding and subtracting one and two step problems. Then we will work on multiplying and dividing. When multiplying or dividing BY A NEGATIVE NUMBER, the inequality sign flips around. Students have a foldable for this unit. There will also be many opportunities for review games. The test is Tuesday, 2/2.

1/4-1/15: This unit is broken down in to four sections: 1) algebraic expressions; 2) one step equations; 3) two step equations; and 4) word problems. We will use a foldable guide to understand each phase of this unit. Students will be allowed to use the foldable for the exam on Friday, 1/15.

11/30-12/11: We are focused on percent change (markup, markdown, percent increase and decrease, commission, and simple interest). Module 5 test is Friday, 12/11.

11/16-11/20: We are beginning Module 4, which is about Unit Rates and Proportions. On Tuesday of next week (11/24), we will be taking the quiz for this module.

11/9-11/13: Monday is the Unit 1 test. On Tuesday, we will complete test corrections and intervention. Wednesday is STAR testing. Thursday and Friday will be front loading material for Module 4 (unit rates and proportions).

11/2-11/6: We are reviewing operations with rationals and taking a Module 3 assessment on Thursday. Friday we will review for a Unit 1 Test.

10/26-10/30: We are working on multiplying and dividing rational numbers (7.NS.2). Tuesday is our STAR test.

10/19-10/23: We are focused on adding and subtracting rational numbers and fractions. On Friday, there will be a quiz on this.

10/12-10/15: Students are beginning a new module on adding rational numbers. STAR testing will be on Tuesday.

10/5-10/9: This week we are continuing with multiplying and dividing integers, but adding in the challenge of word problems. On Thursday, we are taking the Module 2 test.

9/28-10/2: This week we are multiplying and dividing integers. On Tuesday, we are taking the STAR test.

9/21-9/25: This week we are starting with a review of this module's standards. Then we are taking the test on Wednesday (9/23).

9/14-9/18: This week we are subtracting integers and solving multi-step equations. On Tuesday, we are taking the STAR test.





                      

8th Grade: Module 14-15: Statistics


5/9-5/27: This last chunk of learning is going to be hosted by the lovely Mrs. Kopecky. She is completing her Master's Degree and requested to reenter the classroom with the current 8th graders. She has designed an insightful project about life after graduation. Students will learn a lot from this project!


5/2-5/6: This module revolves around the volume formulas for a cone, a sphere, and a cylinder. We will have a mini-quiz on Friday. 

4/18-4/28: We will be starting a completely new unit on the Pythagorean Theorem. This is used to determine the lengths of the sides for right triangles.

3/29-4/15: We will complete review projects and online intervention to prepare for the Forward Exam and minimize loss of instructional time due to altered schedules.

3/8-3/18: Module 11 continues our focus on geometry. Students will need to know about angle relationships when parallel lines are intersected by a transversal line. Also, students will be able to determine unknown angles based on angle theorems. This unit will continue after break. There will be a mid-point quiz on Wednesday, 3/16.

2/15-3/2: We are continuing to study transformations, specifically dilations. This involves enlarging or shrinking an object. We are going to learn how to do this with shapes and using algebra. Students will be able to use a foldable on the test. 3/4 is our unit test on Module 9 and 10.

2/1-2/12: We are shifting gears to focus on geometry. We've definitely tired ourselves from all the graphing and algebra, so this should be a nice change of pace. This unit is focused on transforming figures by rotation, reflection, and translation. We have an interactive foldable to help us with this knowledge.

1/20-1/29: Now that we understand multi-step equations, we are going to apply that knowledge to systems of equations. This involves comparing two equations and finding a single answer they both share. We will use two strategies for solving: graphing and elimination. Students will have a foldable to assist them with notes. The test is on Friday, 1/29.

1/4-1/15: This unit is broken down in to four sections: 1) using inverse operations; 2) two step equations with variables on both sides and rational numbers; 3) using the distributive property; and 4) identifying possible solutions. We will use a foldable guide to understand each phase of this unit. Students will be allowed to use the foldable for the exam on Friday, 1/15.

11/30-12/11: We are focused on understanding and describing functions. Module 6 test is Tuesday, 12/15.

11/16-11/20: We are beginning Module 5, which is continuing our understanding of linear relationships and equations. On Tuesday of next week (11/24), we will be taking the quiz for this module.

11/9-11/13: We are assessing Module 4 on Monday. Tuesday will be test corrections and intervention. Wednesday is STAR testing. Thursday and Friday are front loading days for Module 5 (linear equations).

11/2-11/5: We are continuing with nonproportional relationships in linear form. We will complete a practice test on Friday.

10/26-10/30: We are working on 8.F.3 (representing linear nonproportional relationships and determining slope and y-intercept). Wednesday is our STAR test.

10/19-10/23: We continuing with proportional relationships, focusing on slope and rate of change. The Module 3 Test will be on Friday!

10/12-10/15: We have started Module 3: proportions. Students are using the online interactive edition to master the content. STAR testing is on Wednesday.

10/5-10/9: This week we are assessing our knowledge of adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing numbers written in scientific notation. On Tuesday and Thursday, we are taking the Module 2 test and Unit test.

 9/28-10/2: This week we are working on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing numbers written in scientific notation. On Wednesday, we are taking the STAR test.

9/21-9/25: This week: exponents and sci not.

9/14-9/18: This week we are learning about real, rational, and irrational numbers. We will also learn how to order different types of numbers. On Wednesday, we are taking the STAR test.
