Our sixth, seventh, and eighth grade classes have spent their first week back at school participating in a new math learning style! They begin each class working together in small groups to answer an opening question that will introduce a new math concept. This new approach helps drive inquiry-based learning that is one of our goals here at SJS. I am thrilled with the teamwork I am seeing in the classroom and the academic language I am hearing! Keep up the great work, Trojans!
I am very excited for this upcoming school year! I'm so happy to have all my seventh and eighth graders back in the classroom with me, and am very excited to welcome this year's incoming sixth graders to our upper hall family! Math class this year is going to be a little different, and I can't wait to try new things and learn alongside all of you. I will be focusing on a more inquiry style of learning this year, slowly at first, but very soon you will understand our vision of student-lead learning. I am very excited for our students to be driven by their own curiosities and interests with my support along the way.
I know this year will be one of our best yet, and I can't wait to get started!
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!
