Here is what we will be focusing on for this week:

6th Math: Students will be writing expressions from verbal models. We will also be evaluating expressions this week. This will require students to use the order of operations and exponents skills from last week. We will be quizzing over material learned so far next week!

7th Math: This week, students will be focusing on exponents and square roots. Students will look at the relationship between squaring a number and finding the square roots (positive and negative) of the result. They will also learn to approximate the square root when a perfect square root is not possible.

Prealgebra (8th grade math): Students will begin our exponent unit. We will begin looking at several properties of exponents which will require students to add, subtract, or multiply the exponents. Students will quiz on Thursday. This quiz will include material on everything we have covered prior to this week. There will be no study guide. Students should review examples in their notebooks.

Algebra: Students will add and subtract radicals using like terms this week. We will also look back over exponent properties, reviewing prealgebra content and introducing algebra content. Students will quiz on Thursday. This quiz will include material on everything we have covered prior to this week. There will be no study guide. Students should review examples in their notebooks.

 

6th Science: This week, we will learn how to find the volume of liquids using graduated cylinders and how to find the volume of irregular objects using displacement. Students will also review the difference between physical and chemical properties. At the end of the week, we will review how to measure using the metric side of a ruler, which will help us in finding the volume of right rectangular prisms.

7th Science: This week, we begin our unit “The Cell in Action.” This unit focuses on osmosis, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, mitosis, and meiosis. The week will be spent focusing on Chapter 17, section 1. There are several processes mentioned in this section and students will be required to know how they are alike and how they differ.

8th Science: This week, we are focusing on atomic structure and moving into how the periodic table is organized. Students will receive the 2 lists of elements that they will be quizzed over (name and symbol). Atomic timeline books are due on Friday.

 

Roessler Notes

*I will be out on Wednesday. The work that I am leaving can possibly be completed during class.  If students complete it, then there will be no homework. If they do not, then it becomes homework.

*Picture Day is on Friday. Students can be out of uniform, but must meet dress code. Order forms were sent home.

*I will be asking students soon about interest in Math Counts and trying to determine a day after school to hold meetings. If you are interested in helping out, please let me know.
