To promote student engagement and choice, students created their own online jeopardy questions and input them onto online jeopardy boards. Students then worked in teams to review math concepts for their upcoming NWEA test. Students had a great time reviewing for the test, and were able to self monitor their own success.
As students prepare to take the EOY (end of year) Spring NWEA test, here is a list of great online resources to help them get prepared and review the concepts we have learned so far this year.
We received a very special gift from a very special friend. She brought us three Amaryllis plants to journal and watch grow. Our science journalist is responsible for measuring, drawing a diagram, and writing about the plants everyday. We're very excited about how much they have grown, and when they'll bloom.
Students have been creating and using data and graphs exclusively for our daily math talks. This week students plotted and graphed data about two different restaurants, the weekly customers, and the weather outside during the weeks. As a class, we discussed trends that we saw in the data, and talked about theories as to why those trends may have been happening. Students are continuing to build on their data analysis and fluency when creating, reading, and taking quizzes over their weekly graphs during our math talks. Every Friday the students have a quiz over the data that they take online. Students take the Google Form quizzes I create through logging into Google Classroom, and reading their assignment, and using the appropriate tool (their graphs) to find the answers to the questions.
Students have been fully diving into all things geometry! As a culminating project, they created their own geometry towns. To create their geometry towns, they needed to apply the concepts we had gone over to identify the angles their streets made, including transversal angles, placing their map items accordingly, and creating a corresponding key.
Students did a great job designing their towns and showing off their mastery of the geometry we had extensively learned.
