HERE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY CLASS…
IN THIS ISSUE
What we are learning…
Math: Students are formally
introduced to proportional reasoning
with the building blocks of ratios, rates,
and proportions. Students examine and
distinguish between ratios and rates as
they give examples of ratios as
multiplicative comparisons of two
quantities describing the same attribute
and examples of rates as the comparison
by division of two quantities having
different attributes. Students extend
previous work with representing
percents using concrete models and
fractions. Additionally, students are
introduced to generating equivalent
forms of fractions, decimals, and
percents using ratios, including
problems that involve money. Students
solve and represent problem situations
involving ratios and rates with scale
factors, tables, graphs, and proportions.
Students also represent real-world
problems involving ratios and rates,
including unit rates, while converting
units within a measurement system.
Science: Students will continue to
differentiate between common
elements and compounds by name and
symbol. Students plan and implement
comparative and descriptive
investigations, including using various
tools and equipment, to observe
examples of chemical reactions that
produce new substances. They
recognize that the formation of a new
substance may be identified using the
evidence of a possible chemical change,
such as production of a gas, change in
temperature, production of a
precipitate, and / or change in color. In
addition, students will learn about
Energy Resources and the appropriate
use and conservation of resources,
advantages and disadvantages of using
differing energy resources, and finally,
management of those resources.
