This Week in Math - Mr. Lynch takes over and Properties of Exonents


This week in Math the students are transitioning into Mr. Lynch's student teaching.

With a new teacher comes new expectations.

The students have been briefed with a new expectations in the new syllabus.

However, as a reminder they will have the following opportunities to curb behavior issues.

1.  They will be giving a verbal warning

2.  They will be asked to move to a designated location and fill out a Think Sheet.  This will be emailed to parents.

3.  Office Referral form will be filled out.


This week the students are starting Unit 7 The Properties of Exponents.  The tutorial below covers what we will be covering and practicing in class this week!

This Week in Math - Function Madness

This week the students will be exploring how Saber Metrics can help us predict the outcome of events over time.  One way we see this play out in the real world is with the game of baseball and the concept of Sabermetrics.





To explore how this relates to what we are studying is to apply our Math Functions we are learning in class.  Each student/Pair of students will be drawing one of the Match Ups from this weeks NCAA March Madness.  They will then be applying Sabermetrics to their match up to evaluate what team has the best opportunity to win based upon a number of factors.

They will then take this data and place it in a poster that will be due at the end of the week.  All Work will be contained in the poster.


Below are the Character Strong Lessons we will be working through this week too!
