I invite you to go with your student to https://ascentutah.instructure.com and log in using their macbook IDs. Typically this is firstname.lastname and either their SSID or other number they use for logging into their macbooks. I’ve heard of some students using their sage number.
All classes will be on Canvas by 2nd semester but I am going to start using it now. I will keep both Canvas and Aspire updated but Canvas will be updated first as far as assignments etc.
Under the file section I have included the course lessons.
I am still learning how to mark missing assignments right now they show nothing and don’t impact their grade on Canvas. So your student is still responsible for checking their grades. As we get closer to 2nd semester you’ll see all of their classes on Canvas.
There is also a phone app you can get so they can check their grades.
The week before Christmas break we will be collaborating on a project that involves the design of a gingerbread house and then actually building the gingerbread house.
The 7th graders will tie this into their percentage and area content knowledge and we will have an in class activity to tie this to what we are learning that week.
The 9th graders will be practicing limiting domain and range and designing their house via equations.
If you have extra NON chocolate candy such as skittles, nerds, gummies, twizzlers and any other colorful candy that would be fun on a gingerbread house, I’d really appreciate any donations from your Halloween candy. I will be sending home a form sometime in November with a donation request for this type of candy as well as graham crackers and frosting. but you are free to bring it in anytime. I will keep the donations separated by class but I will try to make sure all classes have enough to have fun.
Note: I will make sure that there are supplies that are both gluten free and nut free in the hopes that all students can participate. One of the reason I request non-chocolate candy is that it is more likely not to be contaminated by nuts. If your student cannot participate, I will have an alternate activity that they can earn with their tickets.
Our goal for this term is a mathematical practice standard for both 7th grade and high school math “Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them”. In other words willingness to try and achieve understanding. I will be randomly passing out tickets this term until winter break when I see examples of this with our students. These tickets will used to “purchase” their gingerbread house supplies.
Here are a few of the projects I’ve gotten in. They are in no particular order but I hope you enjoy them.
Here is the slide show for the quadratics page.
We are looking at a test this week. I have posted the pretest under the various unit’s tabs.
