This week in Algebra, we learned how to graph inequalities in 1 and 2 variables. Students are working to not simply memorize rules to follow, but to understand why they are following certain processes. Kids are grappling with concepts like:
if x is greater than 5 , but less than 10 , what are the possible values that work in this situation. What would the graph look like?
If the absolute value of x -3 is equal to negative 5, is there are solution. Why or why not?
Our next test will be on Tuesday, Election Day! Remember to have your child think about whether they are being appropriately challenged. They should reassess at the end of each unit whether they should be in MLA, MLB, or MLC.
As students prepare for our next unit on immigration, they reviewed grammatical structures: negative expressions, how to formulate questions, direct object pronouns and irregular verbs in the present tense. Students read an article Jeux Olympiques 2020 and practiced these structures in their responses to questions they wrote. They also watched the film: Le petit bout de chou et la sorcière for which they wrote descriptive sentences about the events in the story. À la prochaine- Mme Pezzulli
Student finished final project related to hispanic populations in Rhode Island and the US. There was impressive learning demonstrated with graphs and writing. We are now into a bit of fun with learning about La Quinceañera. Students will compare a celebration of their own with that of La Quinceañera.
