Ratios, Proportions, and PARCC

Parents and guardians,

We are now in our Ratios and Proportions unit.  Students have been discovering what it means for two variables to be proportional, both in the world of mathematics and in the world around us.  For example, we discussed the relationship between human height and hand length, using our own measurements to explore the concept initially. 

Our first quiz in the unit will be given this Friday, April 8 for the Celtics class and the Patriots class.  The Bruins class will take their quiz on Monday, April 11 due to a PARCC kick-off event scheduled during their math class on Friday.

As a side-note reminder, the PARCC math test has been scheduled for May 17, 18, and 19 for our team. The ELA PARCC is scheduled two weeks earlier on May 3, 4, and 5.

What you can do at home: Hit "reply" and drop me a note if we haven't spoken yet this year. I would love to hear from you! You would also be helping me with my "100% household communication goal" (outside of these updates) for the year :)

As always, thanks for reading and for your support at home!
Ms. Vila
