Here are your STEM learning options for this week. This is the final week of home learning for this school year. Our team appreciates students and parents commitment during this challenging time. Have a great summer!
High Tech Option
**Please note that it is recommended to play dreambox for at least 90 minutes per week or around 5 lessons per week.
Low Tech Option
This week students can practice the mixed operations worksheets as way to review any of the number sense skills that have been posted during the home learning initiative. Students should attempt addition, subtraction, multiplication and division worksheets. Working on these essential math skills is critical to developing proper number sense and will greatly improve both math skills and confidence.
No Tech Option-
What’s the Probability?
Roll a regular 6-sided die and track your results in a table similar to the one shown below. In theory, you have a 1 in 6 chance, or about a 17% chance of
rolling any value from 1 through 6. In practice, experimentally, it usually takes many attempts to reach this statistic. How many rolls did it take before
your results approached the theoretical probability?
Weekly STEM Challenge:
Summer gives us so many opportunities to explore and discover. Water worthy vessels have a long history of exploring and sailing our seas. They come in all shapes and sizes and have a variety of interesting features. There are sailboats, houseboats, rafts, catamarans, pontoons, yachts, canoes, and so many more! Your challenge this week is to design and construct a model boat that is sea worthy and resistant to capsizing. For more information about this challenge please visit the following link:
