Mr. Drake's Class

Updated for the week of February 20-23 , 2018

7th Grade Math: The 7th graders created area models today to find the theoretical value of points scored during one-and-one free throw situations for a 60% free throw shooter.  Tomorrow we will assess expected values for a variety of free throw percentages and analyze for tends.  On Wednesday we will complete a partner quiz before launching the final probability investigation on binomial outcomes.

 6th Math: The 6th graders used what we know about percents to calculate tips today.  They picked items from a menu, calculated the total, sales tax, and tip.  So next time you go out for a meal have them determine the tip for 15 or 20%.  We will be exploring percent discounts tomorrow and prepare for our unit assessment on Friday.  

7th and 8th Grade Science: The 7th and 8th graders examined the prevention of infectious diseases today.  They will be working this week on their infectious disease project which is due on Friday.    

6th Grade Science: The 6th graders made timelines of their own lives today and made connections to the geologic time scale.  We will be investigating what conditions our planet endured during the early days of Earth.  Students will also continue work on their Periods of Earth's Past Pecha Kuchas which are due on Friday. 

Events: We will be hosting a Parents' Night Out on Friday from after school until 8 pm as our final fundraiser before our Teton Science School trip which we leave two weeks from today!
