Mrs. Riordan's and Mr. McGrail's sixth graders completed the "Vampire Project" shortly after working with
exponents. We discovered that if one vampire were to infect two people, and those two people infected two more people
and so on; within a little more than a month the entire planet would be infected! Since I am not a vampire and you are
not a vampire then they really do not exist!!
This project afforded the students the opportunity to browse Web sites that kept statistics on world population.
We also did a lot of work learning how to solve equations with variables. We are looking forward to our shopping project
this holiday season!
Mrs. Silvestri's sixth grade class work included a unit on word problems, patterns and sequencing. These
students also are looking forward to the school wide shopping project coming up next month.
