Our first quiz of the year will be on Friday , January 11th. We will be completing Unit 4 on Bivariate Data with the unit test on Wednesday January 16th, which gives us the end of the month to begin Unit 5: Analyze and Solve Systems of Linear Equations.

    7th Grade - Here's to the new year and a new chapter! The new year begins with Chapter 6: Ratio, Proportion and Proability. We kick of the new year with a stem activity that has the students utilizing and applying their knowledge of ratios and proportions in the health field. We will have the students rotate thru stations, one measuring blood pressure, then measuring at rest pulse rate vs after exercise, another one converting weight height and temperature, figuring medication dosages and finally calculating BMI. Not only will we write and solve proportions but we will correlate proportions with similar figures and scale drawings. The first quiz of the year is planned to be Tuesay January 15th. The end of Chapter 6 ties in our skills to probability and utilizing the multiplication principal to find probabilites. The end of January ( January 28th ) brings a close to marking period 2.
