Students have been applying the skills they learned about geometric constructions with a compass & straight edge along with what we have learned about three-dimensional solids and the nets that fold to make those solids. The juice box project required them to come up with a design for a juice box. They had to construct the net for the solids that they incorporated into their design. The design requirements included:
1. Name of the “juice”
2. Ingredients listing
3. UPC barcode
4. Any other decoration they wanted
5. Neat assembly/construction of final object(s)
Here are some of the projects that have been turned in early.
The official due date is Monday, May 6th.
Friday and Monday, students will be working on IXL Math – 7th Grade skills P17 through P23.
They can log in from home over the weekend if they want to work on some of the problems. They should work them in order and not move on to another skill until they have reached the 100 SmartScore for that skill.
After having read from the Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Hero’s Journey, students have started working on their own Hero Myth.
Read the Hero’s Journey Packet (Friday, Feb 22)
Choose the Hero, Setting, Gift, and Theme for the story (Friday, Feb 22)
Fill in the web with the main ideas of “Hero’s Journey” (Friday, Feb 22 & Monday, Feb 25)
Work in class on the handwritten rough draft (Monday, Feb 25 & Tuesday, Feb 26 & Wed Feb 27)
Work together with someone (read each others myth, review, revise) (Thursday, Feb 28)
Computer time in library to type final draft in google docs (Friday, Mar 1 & Monday, Mar 4)
Hero Myth will be due on Thursday, March 7th at beginning of class.
Students are working on the surface area problems from the Perimeter and Area packet (Lessons 8.6, 8.7, 8.8, & 8.9). They will continue working on those Thursday. Homework is to watch the help videos if possible from home.
Students learned where the formula for the area of a parallelogram and the area of a trapezoid came from. Students worked on the perimeter and area packet in class. They should be done with lessons 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, & 8.5 from the perimeter and area packet.
Students worked on the KIM Vocab Packet for Book 3, Surface Area and Volume – Block 1.
They will get more in class time tomorrow to finish it up.
We have started into the third Oregon Focus on Math book: “Surface Area and Volume”.
See links for Oregon Focus on Math – Online Textbook on the left menu for an extra resource on what we will be covering.
We will be working on using geometry formulas to solve perimeter, area, and volume problems.
Students received a packet titled “Perimeter and Area”. Their only homework was to finish what they could from page 77 & 78 of the packet (Check What You Know).
