Math

Students will be working on a “March Madness” statistics project using the following standards.

  • Students will Understand that a set of data collected to answer a statistical question has a distribution which can be described by its center, spread, and overall shape. [6-SP2]

  • Recognize that a measure of center for a numerical data set summarizes all of its values with a single number, while a measure of variation describes how its values vary with a single number. [6-SP3]

  • Display numerical data in plots on a number line, including dot plots, histograms, and box plots. [6-SP4]

  • Summarize numerical data sets in relation to their context, such as by: [6-SP5]

  • Reporting the number of observations. [6-SP5a]

  • Describing the nature of the attribute under investigation, including how it was measured and its units of measurement. [6-SP5b]

  • Giving quantitative measures of center (median and/or mean) and variability (interquartile range and/or mean absolute deviation) as well as describing any overall pattern and any striking deviations from the overall pattern with reference to the context in which the data were gathered. [6-SP5c]

  • Relating the choice of measures of center and variability to the shape of the data distribution and the context in which the data were gathered. [6-SP5d]

Science

We are studying Environmental Science issues such as air pollution, water pollution, deforestation, over hunting and over fishing, polar ice caps melting, etc. Students are not only identifying issues, rather learners are researching and developing solutions for improving our planet. Ask your kiddos about how human impact plays such a role in pollution.

Social Studies

Mrs. Austin

We are reading Four-Four-Two by Dean Hughes in class together to help us think about stories of resilience. Ask your learner about the characters, plot, and their reaction to the story! What do they think about it? What are they interested to learn more about? How does the story make them feel?

This week we are starting WW2. We will cover vocabulary, causes/effects, and start prepping for an atomic bomb debate!

Ms. Hale’s History Class

We are wrapping up WWII and are moving on to the Cold War. This week we are talking about changes to the Home Front and learners are learning about its effects on Alabama.

I cannot emphasize enough how much your support means to me by working with your learner at home on Writing. This is very important, and each learner has made strides, but we still have a long way to go. Please continue being involved, and let's end this school year successfully!
