    6th Grade Math Discovery:
    We are supporting the work in their current unit in math...multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers.
    7th Grade Math Discovery: 
    We are working on understanding and writing algebraic expressions.  We are also developing expressions ("rules") for algebraic sequences in input/output tables to support our understanding of the 'utility' of algebraic reasoning and understanding.  If we can generalize a rule, then our work can be much more efficient!!!  :-)
    8th Grade Math Discovery: 
    We our continuing our work with writing and solving algebraic equations, including working with variables on both sides and writing algebraic equations from problems designed for "guess and check."  We decided that algebra was a MUCH smarter and expedient way to work!!!
