Friday Frenzy

Hello parents and students, 

We had a very busy Friday leading into the weekend. We began with an awards assembly. In our class Suhana and Rishabh won the awards for being open-minded. Congratulations both of you!

We also have BIG news. St.Jude's Academy is now affiliated with an official soccer club called St. Jude's FC. Students of St.Jude are given a 33% discount that will allow them to join the club and play competitively with other soccer clubs this spring and summer (starting most likely April to September). The students will be working with excellent coaches and going to competitions on the weekend. Practices will be held (most likely) right after school twice a week. In April, besides the soccer field, the students will have a chance to play in our official soccer dome! I think this is a great opportunity!! The students have been given forms (I can e-mail extras), they should try to submit the form as soon as possible. 

In math, we began by taking up the homework. We also did some examples as a class all together. 

1. In a bag of jelly beans 4/40 are orange. There is an equal chance of getting blue, yellow and red. What is the theoretical probability of getting each number?

orange = 4 jellybeans       
So I have 36 jellybeans still left but I need an equal number of                                          blue, yellow and red. 
   36÷3= 12 each                So I have 12 blue, 12 yellow and 12 red. 

2. I have jellybeans in a jar. If I pull out 4 red, 4 yellow and 2 blue in 10 turns. What is the theoretical probability of getting red if I take 100 turns (put in fractions and percent)? 

   =        40      
10   x10   100      
 I multiplied the bottom by 10 to I have to multiply the top as well. 
Percentage is out of a 100 so probability is 40%. 

The students then learned about tree diagrams. Here is a video that can further explain those if they get stuck. For the weekend, I have given extra math review homework (show what you know). We will be doing more review on Monday and then the quiz is on Tuesday. The answers for the review as well as extra practice are posted below. 

Please note: You do not have to complete question 5d on the Show Your Work -- last page

In UOI, the students all worked on their projects. Most people are either finished or at almost finished, on Monday I will give students the final chance to fix their projects before the big day. 

In language, the students started writing their final reflection. For the final reflection the students have to answer 4 questions in depth about changes in their health; the students needed to use their daily summaries, tracker as well as the answers to their questions to create this final reflections. The answers must be 2-4 full sentences, however the students are allowed to add more. Additionally, the students may make their reflection creative by presenting it the way they want with pictures (hand-drawn or taken), typed-answers and etc. This is due Monday.
