Week of 10/7/13

Science:
This week in science we will be continuing our research for the Science Fair on Monday (please don’t forget your Science Fair proposals are due on Thursday!), we’ll introduce atoms on Tuesday, complete an element/compound/mixture lab on Wednesday, and take a quiz on Thursday. Friday we’ll be sleeping in and celebrating in general merriment.

Math:
In math we’ll be beginning our intensive study of expressions and equations by evaluating and simplifying expressions with variables.  If we’re lucky, we might even get to complete some CMP investigations for practice!  Huzzah! In all likelihood, we will also have a quiz on Thursday… so you’ve got that going for you, which is nice. Gunga galunga.
