Welcome back for the 3rd marking period. At this point we are looking for behaviors and study habits to begin to look more like 8th graders! During this quarter our focus in Math classes will be on Probability and Statistics, and Analyzing Data. We will be looking at games of chance and other issues related to probability. Hopefully we can create our "Probability Carnival" again this year and invite other students to come in and "play" our games.
I also will be introducing lots of data through the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament this Spring. It's a fun way to collect data and analyze. My motto for this marking period will be, "It's Easier to Keep Up Than to Catch Up!" Hopefully we will continue to see improvement!
As always, please feel free to contact me through e-mail if there are any questions or comments!
