What a great start to the school year! This week has been full of fun and time spent getting to know one another. Students started on their first assignment called "Figure Me Out" where they have been able to introduce themselves to both their classmates and myself while demonstrating their math skills. In addition to this activity, we were introduced to the first unit Solving Equations by reading the book "If You Hopped Like a Frog." This book focuses on the extraordinary abilities of different creatures and challenges students to think of what they could do if they had comparable abilities and to test those abilities using proportions. Students also took a pretest to determine where they will start in unit 1. In week two, students will begin working on unit 1 Solving Equations. Resources for Unit 1 are found under the tab along with student checklist.
