 6th Math  Honor's  Monday 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. :) Video: https://www.mathantics.com/files/lessonvideos/MeanMedianMode_MA.mp4
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHginNwss5c (Song)  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.
Videos: 1. Intro to transformations: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/basicgeo/basicgeotransformationscongruence/transformationsintrobasicgeo/v/introductiontotransformations
2. Lines of Symmetry (reflection) https://www.khanacademy.org/math/basicgeo/basicgeotransformationscongruence/lineofsymmetry/v/axisofsymmetry
 Tuesday Extended Day Yearbook (216) Coding (416) Math Lab (442)
 With the collected speed data, we will find the 4 measures of central tendencies....mean, median, mode and range speed in each class.  Student reflection on the building tour if we didn't have time on Monday. Continue practicing rotation on the coordinate plane.
3. Rotation points and shapes https://www.khanacademy.org/math/geometry/hsgeotransformations/hsgeorotations/v/rotatingpoints
 Wednesday
 Review the whole chapter on decimal operations, terminating and repeating decimals and measures of center. Must know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide decimals!! :)  Dilation and scale factors of 2, 3, 1/4 and 1/2. The effects of dilating on perimeter and area of a geometric figure.
 Thursday Extended Day Art Club (404) STEM Club (309)  Chapter Test  Continue on dilation and scale factors.  Friday Extended Day Chess Club (434) Math Lab (242)  Chapter Test  Similarities: How do you determine 2 figures are similar or not? Use ratios, angles and sides relationship analysis.
