Last week, we used magnetic plastic shapes (Picasso Tiles) to explore and see the relationships between squares and square roots. We built squares of areas, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, even 128 (tried to, but we ran out …

Last week, we took our Final for the course, which was a unit test on Coordinate Geometry. The test covered the topics studied the last few weeks: slope, midpoint, perpendicular lines, distance formula, reflections, rotations, translations. After the test, we …

In 6th grade math, students are studying expressions and equations. They began this work with studying digital mobiles and figuring out what values created a balanced mobile. Using this information, they were able to draft statements of equivalency, representing unknown …

We have been studying squares and sqaure roots, making the connection between the areas of squares and the lengths of their sides. We have also analyzed what integers non-perfect square-roots would fall between. We have used the coordinate system to …

The last couple of weeks we have been working on a unit in coordinate geometry. We have studied 1) slope of a line, 2) midpoint between two points, 3) calculating the distance between two points, 4) deciding if two lines …

We started a new unit on squares and square roots. We are exploring the meaning of the square root symbol and its approximation for several values. We continue to make connections between the area of a square and the square …

On Monday of this week, we went outside to enjoy some fresh air while students did some catch-up work. On Tuesday, we discussed one last new topic, chords that intersect within a circle and their relationship to one another. Today …

This week, we are doing population sampling projects. The first was to take a tub of dried beans and determine the actual percentage of certain beans (there were 20 types of beans in all, we only counted 7 of them) …

We finished class on 3/31 creating inscribed circles of triangles using angle bisectors and circumscribed circles of triangles using perpendicular bisectors. On Monday, we created regular hexagons inscribed in circle using 6 equilateral triangles. Tuesday and Wednesday we worked with …

We have been discussing measures of center of data sets including means and Mean Absolute Deviation (average of distances from mean). We have been talking about the difference between sample means and population means and how their distributions differ. We …
