Period 2: Finish Dilation worksheet that we started in class. Be prepared to share out answers in class.
Period 3: Finish the Dilation worksheet up to problem 8. Be prepared to share out answers in class.
Note: As always with homework in Ms. Roe’s class, if you don’t know the answer or what to do you need to 1). TRY something!!! or 2) Write a complete explanation about what part of the problem you don’t understand.
In Math classes are currently learning and practicing dilations. In addition to dilations, we are continuing our practice of rotations, reflections, and translations. Students had a very small quiz today that I am going to use to inform instruction for the rest of the week.
In Science we are at the tail end of the Evolution unit with 2-3 activities remaining before we move on to Force and Motion. Students should expect a test in the next 2 weeks (after a small quiz later this week I will be able to gauge if students are ready for this sooner or if there needs to be some reteaching before the test).
Outside of math and science…. Students are invited to join Ms. Roe, Mrs. Young, Mrs. Dodd (and possibly others) this Sunday at Run with the Duck! The kids run is at 9:30am and if you’re feeling extra adventurous the 5k is at 10am. For more information, visit Run With The Duck.
Science homework is the 3 Analysis Questions on the back of the Pepper Moth Lab: Questions 13-15
- 13). Explain how the color of the moths increases or decreases their chances of survival.
- 14). Explain the concept of “natural selection” using your moths as an example.
- 15). What would happen if there were no predators in the forest? Would the colors of the moths change over time? Defend your answer?
There is no math homework tonight
Classwork: page 176-177 in the Instruction book
Homework: #1-6 page 211-212 in Practice and Problem Solving
Remember: Even if you do not know how to answer a question, you can always TRY something or explain why the question does not make sense. Homework is not counted as completed unless there is work shown on each problem.
Students always have the option of retaking tests up to 2 times within a 2-week window of the testing period. Before students can retake tests, however, they must show that they understand the content more thoroughly to ensure a successful retest.
Below I have two documents, one for math and one for science, that I have students complete and return to me with their original test before they can retake their test. Feel free to print these off at home or copy them for future use!
