Everyday Math:

We are currently approaching the end of chapter 6. This chapter has brought about the introduction to the algebraic processes. Students are learning how to multiply and divide fractions, how to add and subtract negative and positive numbers, and how to work with equations. These next two weeks will involve working with equations and inequalities.


Simply put, chapter 4 was generally a review chapter. There were a few ideas that had foundations in what they had learned earlier this year, but for the most part students already knew most of what this chapter covered. We will conclude these next two weeks with an in-class project and then the chapter test.


At this point, students are wrapping up their understanding of Chapter D. Since this material is so lab-based, I felt it ok to have a review in class then a chapter test upon returning from spring break. Following the test, we will be introducing the concept of weather and climate for the next month.


We have been asked to have students update their contact information online. In the next week, it would be great if you would please go to the following link and complete the form. It should only take a couple minutes and it would very much help operations here at Ray Elementary.

Update Contact Info

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at bastachowiak@cps.edu or call me at 773-535-0970.

Kind regards,

Mr. Stachowiak
