Viruses in Devices?

A few weeks ago in the news, there was a breaking news that there was a very dangerous virus going around in a lot of devices, and then when I turned on my sisters phone at the very moment, a pop up notice came that my sister had 15 new viruses on her phone. Right now, I am wondering if this is caused by the virus that is going around, or if it is just a coincidence.

MMMR

In math class, we are learning about MMMR (Mean, Median, Mode, and Range). These are all mathematical terms that help us deal with data in math problems. In my opinion, I think that this unit is really fun and helpful and I believe that everyone getting into 6th grade will truly enjoy this unit.

How I Study

Digital Portfolio Challenge:  Create a ranked list of three different study strategies.    There are TONS of different steps that students take to study new content.  We use flash cards, online games (think Quizlet or Kahoot), review with study partners, and study guides. List three study strategies that you have used in order from MOST effective to LEAST effective -- and defend your rankings.

----------------------

I will list the ways of studying ranked from 3 to 1. 3 means that I sometimes use this strategy and 1 means that I always use this strategy.

1) QUIZLET- I use Quizlet all the time to study for tests and quizzes mostly so I can lock all those vocab words in my brain

2) KAHOOT- Whenever we play this game in class, it builds up my opportunities to answer questions more faster and more efficiently.

3) REVIEWING MY NOTEBOOK- I think this strategy is also helpful as well but I don't really use it. although, reviewing my notebook gives me an advantage because it contains everything that we discussed in class.

Message that everyone should follow

This video is a very simple message that brought a whole middle school to tears. Make sure you guys watch this as well and follow this message too. I learned that everyone should respect their parents and remember that the took so much patience in teaching you daily life things. They wouldn't walk out on you if they got annoyed. They would just keep trying.

Plague Doctors

A few days ago in Social Studies class, we were learning about the deadly disease that happened in the Medieval times called "The Black Death." It was a really deadly disease and had a lot of bad symptoms and the only ones who could cure it were these things called Plague Doctors. Basically what they would do is that, they would examine a body that is being affected and then give the patient a bottle of poison for them to drink. The doctors are saying, "Just drink this poison, die, and get over with it." This is a video we saw in Class. Take a look. Click the link below.
