*Last week, we investigated how a carnival game is not actually “rigged” or cheating, but rather, IMPROBABLE! *

**The sixth graders are learning to find the area of regular polygons by dividing them into equal triangles. A regular polygon (same length sides all around), is made up of the same number of triangles as it has sides. By the end of the week, we will be finding the area of composite figures by breaking them down into smaller shapes. The Chapter 10 test will be next Wednesday.**

**This week, in seventh grade math, we will continue to learn about probabilities and how to make predictions using the probabilities that we can write. We will move into Module 13, in which we will differentiate between what is an experimental probability and what is theoretical.** **Here is a Khan Academy video comparing the two approaches:**

**This week in eighth grade math we will finish Chapter 8 with lesson 6 which teaches us how to find the solution to a system of equations by graphing them. We will use this lesson to practice graphing lines and see what happens when we graph multiple lines on one graph. Here is a great picture demonstrating how you can see a solution to a system on the graph: **

**We will complete our study of quadratic equations this week by learning how to use the Quadratic Formula (see below). The Quadratic Formula works for ALL quadratic equations. There will be a Chapter 9 test on Friday. **

**Beginning next week, we will be reviewing all the concepts from this year in preparation for a cumulative end-of-the-year exam.**
