HAPPY FALL

Continued Blessings to all my students and their families

Fall is upon us and we are enjoying the change in the seasons.

All of our Stock Market teams have seen the ups and downs of the market, but are still plugging along.

Fifth grade is working with real numbers and with fractions. Sixth grade has been piecing together basic math facts, calculating area, and using properties with Algebra. Both the seventh and eighth grades have continued their work with linear equations.

The seventh and eighth graders continue to work on their puppets. On Wednesday, November 22, 2017 both the seventh and eighth graders will “preform” for the first grade.

Problem of the month for grades 6-8 (and 5th if you dare)

Once the water in 1 cubic foot of seawater has evaporated, 2.2 pounds of salt remains. How many cubic inches of seawater would be required to meet the recommended daily allowance of 6 grams of salt per person per day? (Note: 1kg ≈ 2.2lbs)

 

Problem of the month for fifth grade:

What part of a quarter is two pennies, two nickels, and one dime?

Happy Thanksgiving to All
