This week in math we will be continuing our unit on proportionality. Students will learn how to distinguish between proportional and nonproportional graphs, be able to compare unit rates between graphs and tables, and set up proportions to calculate equivalent amounts in a given situation (scaling recipes up/down, projecting future amounts given a constant unit rate, etc.), and calculate the constant rate of change from graphs and tables. A quiz is scheduled for Friday.
This week in science we'll be finishing up our plant unit with a project. Students will be given a project outline and rubric on Monday. The research-based project is about how a specific plant can influence a certain culture. Students can pick any region in the world, but eventually have to narrow their search down to one plant. They will have about 30 minutes during class from Monday - Wednesday to work on their project, and the due date is the beginning of class on Thursday. This will be graded according to the rubric and entered into the grade book. Also on Thursday, students will be given a study guide for the summative plant assessment on Friday.
