In today’s world, students must prepare themselves for a wide range of college and work opportunities. For our students who want to lead a happy life and enjoy the good things the world has to offer, all of our students will certainly need a quality education. This year I am working with our junior high students as we learn about Computer Programming. Students in my “Coding” class will be writing and creating programs using the Python programming language. Students will also learn Block style programming for Android Phones and Tablets using the online MIT App Inventor system.

In other various courses I am teaching, students will learn a wide range of technology applications such as MS-Word, MS-Excel, hardware and software concepts along with basic video editing and production. Students will be introduced to 3D design and 3D Printing. All students in my classes will have ample opportunity to learn and practice 21st Century Skills throughout the semester and year.

Week 30

6th Graders "knock it out of the park" on their second MS-Excel spreadsheet.  This spreadsheet had them creating a spreadsheet for a business venture of their choosing.  This week, students learned how products end up in our stores. From manufacturer to distributor, wholesaler to retail store, students learned the basics of how profits are made through markups of various percentages.

Here are some samples of the spreadsheets they created.  The quality of these products are an indication of the student's understanding of what is expected in a business related spreadsheet.
