Students continue to explore models of math in the real world. Math 1 students are working to answer the question, "How can we measure very big things?" as they learn and apply rules of similarity and proportion while practicing the algebra skills from last quarter. Math 2/3 students are growing toward modeling systems of linear inequalities that are personally relevant. Our community member and small business owner, Steve Evans, spoke with students about maximizing profits and how to be successful. Thank you, Steve! We will be creating posters to share with our 7th grade students who are exploring linear relationships.
As we approach mid-quarter, please keep an eye on the detailed pages in Infinite Campus to track progress. If a student misses class, you can provide support by encouraging the student to come to study before school or after school. I am also available most lunches and during X-Blocks with teacher approval.
Dates to keep in mind as we move toward the winter break and the end of the semester:
BOOKS WE'RE READING
Mindset by Carol Dweck
Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
Students and staff will create content in this space, as necessary, to further communicate about the goings on in the high school.
