Today, students learned about statistical questions! A statistical question is a question that generates a variety of answers. We use statistical questions to gather and analyze data.
Some classes also moved on to mean, median, mode, and range.
Today, students set up their Math Survival Guides with the notes and practice for Unit 6. This unit covers statistics, and students will learn to display, interpret, and analyze data.
Today, students were tested on Unit 5: Area & Volume! When we return from Winter Break, students will begin Unit 6: Statistics. Check out the Unit 6 link under "Unit Resources" above to get a preview of what you will learn when you return! :)
Congrats to these awesome students for making an A on the Unit 5 Test!!

Today, students continued finding the volume of rectangular prisms! They worked through practice problems involving whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. All students will be tested on Unit 5 (area, surface area, and volume) on Friday!
Today, students learned to find the volume of rectangular prisms! Volume is the amount of cubic units needed to fill a 3-D shape. It can be found by counting the unit cubes or using the formulas V = Bh or V = lwh.
A good resource for this standard is the Study Jams! on Volume. Check it out!
All students will take the Unit 5 Test on Friday!
Today, students took a quiz on nets and finding the surface area of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, and pyramids! Next week, students will learn to find the volume of rectangular prisms with fractional edges. They will also be tested on the entire unit of area and volume.
Congrats to these kids for making an A on the Surface Area Quiz!
Bothers: Jayden, Mel, Ja'kierra, J'Kayla, Tristen, Brandon, Juliana, Nick, Lalla Kenza, Kayla, Janea, Bria, Chris, Andrew, Jada, and Natalia!
Leach: Aisha, Sebastian, Bella, Noah, Yani, Terrance, Mikele, Michael, Maria, Haani, and Guilherme!
Ledesma: coming soon!
Schwak: coming soon!
Students continued to practice finding surface area of polyhedrons today. Overall, they have done well with this, but please continue to practice! We will all take a quiz on surface area tomorrow.
Today, students learned to calculate the surface area of pyramids and triangular prisms!
