6th Grade Math – Mrs. Evans
This week we will continue to learn about converting between units of measurement. We will be working with both customary units and metric units. By using conversion factors, we can convert between any two units regardless of the system. Here is how we can use a conversion factor:
The metric system is a base ten system so you can also make conversions with this method:

This week we will continue our study of algebra as we write, model and solve one and two step inequalities. While the solution of an equation is a single value, the solution of an inequality is a range of numbers. With inequalities, we can use the same logic as solving equations. The DIFFERENCE between solving equations and inequalities, is that FOR INEQUALITIES, if you multiply or divide both sides by a negative number, you must reverse the inequality symbol for it to remain true. Here are summaries on how to solve equations and inequalities:
8th Grade Math – Mrs. Ernest
Last week, 8th graders perfected their ability to find whether or not fractions were proportional to one another using cross multiplication. This week, we will extend that learning by finding similar figures, solving for missing side lengths, and building our confidence with geometric word problems and graphing.
Algebra – Mrs. VonFeldt
This week, we finished Chapter 5 and our study of inequalities. Students are now familiar with graphing inequalities in one or two variables. We will continue to practice solving and graphing equations as we begin to look at different ways to solve systems of equations.
