STANDARDS FOR MATHEMATICAL PRACTICE
The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important "processes and proficiencies" with longstanding importance in mathematics education. Learn more about the Standards for Mathematical Practice at http://www.corestandards.org/Math/Practice/.
CHECK OUT VISUWORDS, WORDSMYTH, AND THE ONLINE ETYMOLOGY DICTIONARY!
In early October, students in Leman Middle School's sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade talent, gifted, and cluster language arts classes received word lists for the first round of the 2017 - 2018 WordMasters Challenge, a national competition in which students complete analogies based on relationships among words they have learned (in order to improve their vocabularies and verbal reasoning abilities). Please encourage your child to study his/her WordMasters words! Links to information concerning the WordMasters Challenge, its merits, and how it works are provided below. A link to sample test analogies is also provided (students in Leman Middle School's sixth- and seventh-grade talent and gifted language arts classes and eighth-grade cluster language arts classes compete in the demanding Gold Division of the WordMasters Challenge).
MATH IN REAL LIFE
Two of the most common questions students ask about mathematics are "Why do we need to know this?" and "When will we ever use this?" The following websites help answer these questions by highlighting some of the numerous real-life applications of mathematics, especially those that students may use in their future careers.
