Everyday Math:

Students have become rather competent at finding equivalent fractions, doing math with negative numbers, and multiplying/dividing fractions. We are now working on ratios and rates in chapter 8 which bases off of these concepts previously learned.


These next two weeks will wrap up ratios and rates of chapter 6 and introduce linear equations of chapter 8. This is another major leap for students to develop toward the algebraic prowess they will need to excel in middle school math.


We are in the heart of chapter E which covers Weather and Climate. Students are now learning about the major impact that water has on the climate and stability of our planet. They will conduct labs regarding water soluble materials and benefits/detriments that can be created by such materials.

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

Kind regards,

Mr. Stachowiak
