Skittles Mission Act 1 

I am really excited about the math series my students will be using this year. It is a new book that is tied to the California standards. The format is very student friendly and provides lots of helpful images and charts for student use. The web site for this book is also a very helpful and fun one. Click here to access this web site. Have fun exploring!!
In addition to continuing learning about the 4 basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, my students will also be exploring algebraic thinking and strategies. Integers, functions, probability, as well as fractions, percents, decimals, and ratios will also be covered.
The above topics will be covered in relation to the real world and how each aspect of math ties into daily life and any career the students may be interested in.
Remember.... Math is an Attitude!!

Translating from English to Algebra
Math has its own language. Once you are familiar with it, you can take math sentences written in English and translate it to Algebra. Once Mrs. Judd has finished explaining about the key words for Math, click on the link below to open a worksheet. Take out a separate sheet of paper. Write your heading at the top. Write the statement then write the translation to Algebra on this paper. You will turn this in at the end of the period. If you do not finish it in class, you will finish this for homework in addition to tonight's homework and your Math Problem of the Week solution.

QUIA web site. Go to this web site to find math games and activities I have created based on what we are learning in class. There is a separate web site for each class.
Some of the activities will be for fun, but some will be online quizzes. Be sure to check the due dates for the quizzes. You can access these pages from either at school or at home.

Metrics is an important part of both math and science. Mathematicians and scientists use metrics on a regular basis. It is important for students to feel comfortable using the metric system in both math class and in science class. Funbrain has a very cool site on measurements and the metric system. Students can go to this web site to get some additional practice with metrics.

I am going to be using some new technology along with the math reviews that we will be doing. This new technology is called VoiceThread. It will allow me and all of my students to interact with the math, and a little later, science that we will be covering. You will be learning how to make comments, either by typing in comments, or by recording them. Here is a sample of what Voice Thread is like.
