# MS Mathematics

The Grade 6 Mathematics students celebrated pi day by making their own “Pi City”. Students used bar graphs to represent each digit of pi. They enjoyed creating their own city as they were given the freedom to be creative in designing their own cities. The students did some excellent work!

The sixth graders have, at this time, done some extensive lessons in fractions. Students are able to master concepts in fraction addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They are now extending this concept as they apply fraction concepts in ratios, rates and proportions.

How can you use math to describe the steepness of a trail?  Students in Grade 7 Pre-Algebra are finally able to answer this question as they are now learning about slope and rate of change. They will also soon be able to write and graph linear equations in two variables, graph and solve systems of linear equations, and graph linear inequalities.  You may ask yourself  “Why in the world would anyone want to know these things?”   Just ask a 7th grader and they will be able to give you some real-world applications.  Their most favorite example…

Well, it’s my favorite!
