Weekly Class Summary: Nov. 9-13

SOLs Covered: SOL 6.11 & 7.7 (MSMI.14) Coordinate Geometry; SOL 6.12 (MSMI.15) Circles
New Math Dictionary Sections: (10) Circles
Upcoming Assessments: Circles Quiz (TBA); 4th WWU Quiz Fri. 11/20/09

We wrapped up our coordinate geometry section on the area/perimeter of squares, rectangles, and triangles on Monday, finishing the quiz, which also included the coordinate plane, that was started on Friday of last week. Tuesday was spent taking the benchmark test in the computer lab (FYI all benchmarks and SOLs are done on the computer in MS & HS). On Wednesday, we began our unit on Circles which included a Smarties® activity that allowed us to see the relationship between the radius, diameter, and circumference of a circle along with the reltionship between the circumference and the diameter (Pi π). We will continue working with circles next week, incorporating area questions and word problems into the mix.
