Hello!
I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I just wanted to update you all with what we have been currently learning. In math we have been working on algebra. We have gone through inputting variables, patterns, and the order of operations. We were currently working on writing expressions with variables. This is one of the harder concepts of algebra. In science we were finishing our light unit. We were about to start discussing how light can refract and reflect. We also were going to talk more in depth about how light travels through transparent, translucent, and opaque items. Students are not required to do any work right now. We are supposed to receive more information this week on how we will be handling instruction in the coming weeks. I have put some useful student links and our pacing guide for math and science on the side of the webpage. Please feel free to email me at cruzjm@pwcs.edu if you have any questions. You can also message me on ClassDojo .
