Objectives Presently, we are working on data collection, graphing, and interpreting data.
Skills that are embedded in our projects include: parts of a circle, measurement, scale drawing, We are also working on the Singapore Methodology to problem solving. This includes using models to introduce new concepts. Fundamentally, fractions and algebraic thinking are intertwined in this process. 
First Project Lab: Ping Pong (Click here)
Project Labs require students to utilize newly taught skills. It also reviews and previews skills in the design process. Each project lab is marketed project which includes inclusion of writing, science, and reading within the context of math.

Assignments
10/31 Students have been assigned one story problem from their ping pong project lab. The story problem is also written below:
Assignment one (Also found in Ping Pong & Pie):
Alexandria went to a Ping Pong Tournament and tried 30 food items! One fifth of the the food items were different
kinds of baked goods! One sixth were kinds of candy! One third of the the food items were different kinds of hot
dogs! The rest of the food items were different kinds of fruit! How many food items were different kinds of fruit?
11/1 Students have been assigned one story problem from their ping pong project lab. The story problem is also written below:
Assignment one (Also found in Ping Pong & Pie):
Alexandria spent $40 dollars last month. Her salary for one month is eight times the amount she spent has last
month. How much money does she earn in two years?

12/3 Opportunity Distributive Property
4(5+3)= 7(96)= 4(7+4)= 12/4 Opportunity Distributive Property 5(8+9)= 7(154)= 3(8+5)= Double Distributive Property 32 x 44= 12/6 Opportunity Distributive Property /PEMDAS 6(12+13)= 33 x 19= (5x6) +x =³² Find the mean, mode, median, range, and outlier of all 3 solutions from the above problems. 12/6 Opportunity Distributive Property /PEMDAS 6(43)= 62 x 34= 4(4³  2²) + x =80+120 Find the mean, mode, median, range, and outlier of all 3 solutions from the above problems. 12/17 Properties of a circle 1) Create a data box that has the dimensions of 12cm by 12cm. Mark every three centimeters for the grid. Label: circumference, area, diameter, and radius. Area = PI x radius squared Circumference = PI x diameter 2) Draw the circle with the dimensions of 5 inches/ 3) Create a work space box with the dimensions of 8cm by 8cm. Make two columns using this space! 4) Create work box to figure out the mean with the dimensions of 5cm by 5 cm. Find the mean of area and the circumference, but first round each to the nearest whole number! 12/18 Properties of a circle Complete in class.
