 6th Math  Honor's Math  Monday to Friday
 Probability Packet: This packet allows us to apply our knowledge in converting fraction to decimal to percent into probability situations. We will focus on simple probability this week...the outcomes of rolling a numbered cube, the outcome of spinning a colored wheel, and the outcome of drawing a name form a collection. Students will be able to apply their knowledge in fractions and percent in these situations and be able to interpret the meaning of the events. Vocabulary: event, outcome, total outcome, chance, how likely, probability
The packet will count as a 20% practice grade.
Friday, March 9th, is the last day of third quarter. All retakes and late work need to be turned in by the end of the week.
 Percent Packet: This packet covers lessons 64 to 66. Focus skills are: finding percent change, markups & discounts, and simple and compound interests. Students will be applying their basic knowledge in finding percent of a number to reallife situations where they have to calculate and understand profit, lost, discount and interests. Vocabulary: percent of change, markup, profit, discount, lost, percent of error, simple interest and compound interest.
Friday, March 9th: 1) Two TenMarks assignments due (Calculating Percents & Proportional reasoning with percents) 2) The end of 3rd quarter: any retakes or late work need to be turned in
