Students develop a strong conceptual understanding of Math skills and concepts. They draw on problem-solving skills and prior knowledge to simplify and solve algebraic expressions, approximate probability and relative frequency, and construct different geometric figures. Students learn to identify the plane shapes, and then use those skills to assemble a three-dimensional object. Designing a bird feeder is one of the project options.

Projects emphasize gathering information from texts  and conducting research to form opinions which 
students present through a variety of methods.  Learners increase their skills by interpreting the ubiquitous 
information available in our digital age and presenting their analysis through digital means. They are tasked with 
creating a presentation to the leaders of world nations regarding human colonization of space and writing an 
art critique by taking virtual tours of the world's most famous museums.

Research is at the core of learning this year.
