This week in math will begin with a lesson on creating and solving inequalities from word problems. Students spent last week solving and graphing one and multi-step inequalities, and they have also created multi-step equations from word problems, so this will be a lesson with multiple familiar components. On Tuesday, students will take an ungraded benchmark assessment that covers all of the standards that will be on next month's TN Ready test. An item analysis of the test will determine which standards we will be spending the most time on. From Wednesday until March 8, students will be reviewing all of the skills they have learned this school year in preparation for TN Ready.
This week in science, students will be learning about continental drift (know the name Alfred Wegener), the three main layers of the earth (crust, mantle, core), and also the rate at which tectonic plates move per year (centimeters). VSVS will be teaching lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday, and students will be assessed on the aforementioned content on Friday/Monday of next week.
