This week in Math, we'll be continuing our unit on percents. Students will be taking a district-wide practice test on Monday, followed by a review/extension of the percent proportion on Tuesday. Beyond solving one-sentence prompts (ex: What number is 65% of 415?), students will learn how to apply the percent proportion to word problems and real-life scenarios. After an assessment on the percent proportion, we will work through a lesson on percent of change.
This week in Science will begin with a thorough review of the human organ systems. All students are expected to bring their organ systems guided notes (stapled packet) and textbook to class every day. VSVS (Vanderbilt Students Volunteering for Science) will be presenting hands-on lessons on Tuesday and Wednesday. The final class of the week will begin with an assessment on human organ systems, followed by an intro lesson on genes, chromosomes, and inherited traits.
