Welcome to Mr. Hassen's Web Page

 

Math:

Ch. 4 is multiplication of decimals using pictures, models, patterns, and standard algorithm. For right now, we are only multiplying decimals by whole numbers or by patterns of base ten models.

 

Science:

Space and planets. Students will explore the various items which make up the universe. Students will compare and contrast the inner planets and outer planets.

Important words to remember: Axis, orbit, revolve/revolution, rotate/rotation, comet, asteroid, meteor, moon, star, planet, dwarf planet, univers, solar system.

 

Solar System Vocabulary

 

Word

Definition

asteroid

A rocky object in a solar system that is much smaller than a planet and it orbits the Sun, and you can find a bunch of them between Mars and Jupiter.

comet

An object made of rock, ice, dust, and gas that revolves around the Sun.

dwarf planet

A round space object that is larger than an asteroid, but smaller than a planet.

galaxy

A large group of stars, dust, and gases.

moon

A large rocky object that orbits a planet.

planet

A large body that orbits a star that does not produce its own light.

revolution

The motion of one object around another object; takes the Earth 365 days to make one orbit around the Sun.

rotation

The turning of an object on its axis; takes the Earth one day to spin on its axis.

solar system

A set of planets and other bodies that orbit a star.

star

A large object in space that is made of hot gas and produces its own light.

universe

Everything that exists throughout space.

 

 

 

 

I will be teaching both Math and Science for my homeroom class, and Math for Mrs. Bullock's homeroom. Mrs. Jheri Wilson will be teaching Science to Mrs. Bullock's homeroom while I push in to other classrooms for Math support.  Mrs. Bullock will be teaching reading and social studies to both classes. So, welcome to our team!!!

Mrs. Bullock's homepage can be found HERE.

 

FYI, AR Home Connect logins are not working for most students at this time. Updated information will be provided soon.

 

Math 

Expectations:

Students will use their spiral notebooks as journals. We will be using a few of the spiral notebooks through the year, but students only need 1 at a time at school.

A classroom grade will be given for the journal, which will be checked periodically through each quarter.

Students have to place a table of contents on the first page, then skip 5 pages. On page 6, they will start placing information from each lesson on each successive page, while remembering to also list the information in their table of contents.

Students should always have practice problems in their journals. They should be made up of both standard and scenario problems.

Homework:

Students will remove a homework sheet from their math practice book for each lesson nightly. If a lesson is not complete, there will not be homework for the lesson, or it will be partial.

Homework will be either even or odd numbers, but always includes both "problem solving" and "lesson check" scenarios. IMPORTANT* If a student struggles with the homework, please have them show their best effort, but have them bring the issue to me. I will help the students fix any misconceptions or errors. Please do not feel that you have to help them complete all of the homework.

 

Science:

We will be doing many hands on and movement activities in the classroom and the science lab this year. However, students who are not demonstrating safety instructions will not be able to participate.

Expectations: Students will listen to and observe all teacher and adult instructions. Safety infractions are considered highly serious. All labs require the students to utilize their PSELL books and fill in answers and data. Students will be expected to analyze and make inferences from the collected data.

Homework: The general homework plan will be to study their vocabulary words. However, there will be projects, home inquiries, and research students will compelete periodically. Any special projects will include instructions and a grading rubric to take home.
