The students in Ms.Goins' seventh grade class not only tested their basketball skills, but also used basketball to learn more about fractions.
The students were divided up into teams, and had two rounds to shoot. For round one, each student was allowed one shot, and in round two, each student shot twice. During each round, they had to keep up with their makes and misses. Using this information, they had to write a fraction for their makes and misses for their total amount shot as a team. Once they found their fractions, they had to change them into decimals. Last, they had to compare their fractions for round one and two makes, and round one and two misses.
The students had a blast learning about fractions and decimals!

6th Grade Quest students enjoyed discovering how astronomers use lights to study the stars and planets. Our class was visited by Mrs. April Fowler, who showed and taught us all about how this works. We learned about spectroscopy and how it could possibly be the most powerful tool that astronomers use. Once you take light from a star, planet, or galaxy and pass it through a spectroscope it is a lot like a prism. It splits the light into its component colors. We also learned that spectroscopy tells you a star’s temperature, mass, and surface gravity. The students thoroughly enjoyed this experience and gained lots of new knowledge.
