As a culminating project that reflects math topics two through five, our eighth graders were tasked with creating a snowflake pattern on graph paper. They also had to write the equation of each line they drew to create the snowflake in slope-intercept format (y = mx +b). This project reinforced our standard of constructing linear graphs based on given equations. As a fun added twist, the students then created 3D models of their exact snowflake using materials from our makers' space! Here are a few of the best executed examples!
Recently the eighth grade students have been learning about the cricut machines in our new design studio. Each student chose a cut out design to add to our mailbox that would help get our school in the holiday spirit. They loaded the vinyl into the machines, chose their design and sized each one to fit on our mailbox, and with the other designs that were cut.
Merry Christmas from SJS 8th Grade!
The last few FLEX days the eighth graders took on a project with some real world parameters. The class was broken into groups and challenged to design the most financially successful hotel. They designed the structure of the hotel trying to maximize the number of rooms that they could charge the most for per night. This kind of room had four walls of windows and roof access! They also had to account for hotel costs! The most expensive rooms were also the ones that cost the students the most to maintain. When the project was over the students calculated how much money they earned per night. When reflecting on the project, students responded that they would have brainstormed different ideas for room setup, and recognized they were practicing their collaboration and problem solving skills
I am so excited to begin another fantastic year at Saint Joe's. I cannot wait to get back to solving real world problems, and exploring the world of mathematics with you. We are sure to have a stupendous year together! Make sure to stop by at open house this Sunday and say hello!
