This week in math we will be focusing on the distributive property. We will begin with integers/fractions/decimals and then progress towards using the distributive property with variables. All students should bring their Volume 2 math books each day this week. On Tuesday, the Quarter 2 Benchmark Exam will be administered via laptops. Students will be able to use a calculator for approximately half of the questions. The majority of the questions are from the standards covered in Quarter 2, along with 5 extra questions from Quarter 1. These 5 questions are aligned with the most-missed standards from the Quarter 1 Benchmark.
This week in science we will be closing out our unit on plants. The focus this week will be comparing and contrasting seed plants and seedless plants. We will learn about how they reproduce, how long they have existed, and how their structures help them survive. Students will need to be familiar with the terms angiosperm, gymnosperm, spore, stamen, pistil, petal, sepal, and photosynthesis. We will have a short quiz on angiosperms and gymnosperms early in the week, and we will spend the rest of the week preparing for next week's Quarter 2 cumulative exam. Students will be given a study guide to assist them with their preparation.
