In March, the Geometry class will be working on a project involving the DESMOS graphing calculator (see my main page) and circles. They will also be starting a unit on areas of polygons and circles.
8th Grade Math -
3-D shapes will be the focus of the 8th grade students this month. The students will have the opportunity to identify and work with various 2-D and 3-D shapes in and around the school. They will be asked to final surface area and volume of these shapes as part of the math unit.
The PreCalculus class will be finishing up a unit on Trigonometric Identities in March. They will then be starting a unit involving matrices.
7th Grade Math -
7th grade students will create 3-D cities (on paper) as a lead into learning about geometric figures. There will also be projects involving blueprints, shapes, and area/perimeter calculations.
