The end of the year is upon us and that is bittersweet. I am so blessed to have taught your children this year and I will miss their energy and perseverance to learn! It may feel like the school year is winding down but we are still working hard!
On Friday, May 3rd, the students will take their first quiz for Unit 9: Solving quadratics. In this short unit we will solve quadratics by square root method, completing the square, applications of the discriminant, and vertical motion model. We will expect to conclude this unit around May 24th. To finish off the year we will do a brief overview of statistics looking at measures of shape and center, measures of spread, box plots, and two-way frequency tables.
We are also going to explore quadratics further with a fun catapult project. The students will build a catapult and collect data to represent the parabola of the object in the air. These catapults will be on display Wednesday, May 8th at “Spotlight on STREAM”.
I wish your child all the best in high school. I am very confident that these young adults will go far and do well.
