And we kept reading Twelfth Night!
In math, the algebra group moved toward chapter tests on the standard form of equations (ax + by = c) and ongoing slope-intercept work. They also looked at Rene Descartes' contributions in connecting geometry to algebra in making equations visible. The pre-algebra kids worked with scientific notation, exponents, and fractions, especially simplification and common denominators.
In PE, we ran the Arctic Mile (six laps around the school in freezing temperatures) and went skating at the Ice Cube.
