Final Exam Review
PLEASE NOTE that this semester's final exam has been scheduled for 1/19/2019 (Week 15). It will cover everything that students have learned since week #1. It is recommended for students to begin preparing.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE that this current fall semester is coming to an end soon. The last class will be on 1/26/2019. Registration for this course's spring semester will be open soon and it will be done through the admin. If you have any questions regarding this process or the course content in the spring semester, please let me know.
On the day of our last class for this semester (1/26/2019), students will be participating in the NWCS Gifted Program Market. How this will work for this semester is that the students in the Gifted Program Level 2 class will be preparing products of their own to pitch to us. Each student in Gifted Program Level 2 will have their own booth and students in our class will be given fake money to buy what they want to simulate making transactions and application of what they learned about money. If you would like to see what this activity was like last year, pictures are available on the K1GP curriculum page and gallery page of this website.
1. Counting Money Worksheet that was handed out in class (DUE: next class) Students should also study what each coin and bill looks like in United States currency. There may be a quiz on coin and bill identification next week, so study!
2. Area and Perimeter Application Project
For this project, students will be designing a floor plan/blueprint for their dream house OR building.
To do this project, students will need to draw AT LEAST 5 2D squares and/or rectangles and then decide and write the side lengths for them.
Afterwards, students will need to find the area and perimeter for all squares and/or rectangles. These will be the rooms. On a seperate piece of paper, students need to write down the area and perimeter for each room they designed AND the overall area and perimeter for the entire house/building.
After students completed that, they need to name each room and include furniture in them. To include furniture, they will draw 2D shapes inside each room. All 2D shapes taught must be included AT LEAST TWICE as a whole, not in each room. Afterwards, all furniture needs to be named.
Lastly, on another separate sheet of paper students will write 10 sentences that describes their house/building in DETAIL.
In the end, students will be turning in:
1. A COLORED floorplan/blueprint of their house/building with "furniture" included, as well as side lengths and names of rooms and furniture
2. A piece of paper with the area and perimeter of all rooms, as well as the whole house/building
3. A piece a paper with a 10 sentence detailed explanation of their house/building
3. Textbook Pages 50-90 (DUE: 1/19/2018, which is the day of the final exam)
