Math Students Learn about Graphing
Students in Ms. De Freitas' math classes have been learning how to calculate the slope of a line on a graph. Students learned that the slope of a line describes how steep a line is. Slope is the change in y values divided by the change in x values. This is called rise over run. Finding slope is a fundamental algebra concept.
Eighth Grade Math Students Participate in Hour of Code
Eighth grade math students participated in the national Hour of Code. Hour of Code is celebrated around the world every December. It is a one-hour introduction to computer science, using fun tutorials to show that anybody can learn the basics. Participation allows students to be exposed to easy coding to see if this is something they would like to pursue in the future. Be sure to ask your 8th grader about their experience!
