Extended Day


Mean, median, mode and range: We will collect data on students' running speed in each class. The data collected will be analyzed tomorrow. 

There are 8 assignments in MobyMax on different measures of center. Please work on them this week. They are due Sunday night. Need to do at least 1 for each of the measures.
(1 for mean, 1 for median, 1 for mode and 1 for range)
Of course, you are encouraged to do all 8 so that you are 1 step closer to your goal in Winter MAP. :-)

We will conduct a school building tour to explore how transformations (translation, reflection, rotation and dilation) are embedded into architecture. We will be walking around the outside of the school then the lobby, stair cases and the theater afterwards. 

Students have to draw or take pictures for evidence collection.  

There are 4 assignments on MobyMax for homework. Due on Sunday. 
1 for translation, 1 for reflection, 1 for clockwise rotation and 1 for counter clock rotation.
