Welcome back. It is hard to believe we are already starting a new school year. And now you are in 8th grade! Just think - this time next year you will be in High School! Enjoy every minute of this year. It will be gone before you know it.

Today, we started the year with a fun and yummy activity on probability. Click below for the M&M's Probability Activity. Have a great evening!

For the next 10 days, students will be working on a project to make a bridge out of toothpicks. Students will be placed in groups of 5 people. Each person will choose a job to do for their construction company. The majority of the work will be completed in class. Once in a while, you may have to finish up whatever was not done in class.

HW:

During this project, I recommend that students spend time reviewing each chapter in the book in order to prepare for the final exam. The chapter summary and chapter tests are good resources, as well as the publisher's website (www.glencoe.com).
