Weekly Update from Ms. Rodgers

TThe 7th and 8th-grade math group continued their work this week with linear equations and focused on the slope-intercept form. They learned to write linear equations in slope-intercept form given two points, a table or a graph. After a quiz on Tuesday, we will begin our Geometry Unit. The class is looking forward to celebrating Pi day on March 16th. The 7th and 8th graders will be planning and leading activities for the younger students.
Our upper-grade science group finished their study of chemical energy with a test. We spent Thursday listening to a Science Friday podcast on the coronavirus. I collected student's questions regarding the virus and we will have an opportunity to ask a doctor during a Q&A session via Skype. In our textbook, we are beginning our unit on electricity and magnetism.
Our 5th and 6th graders completed their study of biological molecules with a chapter test on Thursday. We will be reviewing cell types and cell division and then move on to our study of Newton's Laws.
