Ms. East, Ms. Ortega, Ms. Nunez and Mr. Ritchie are integrating technology this year into their seventh grade math curriculum. With tools like Socrative to give online quizzes and games like SumDog that test student's math skills as they compete against each other, students are learning about rational numbers with netbooks.
Mr. Rozsa's classes have been exploring compounds. He took video of the students as the experimented with building their own compounds and created an Animoto with that video and posted it on his website. You can see the students in action here:

Technology has played a big part in getting back into the school routine this school year.
- Moodle is in use in sixth grade as World Cultures and Science are assessing student knowledge.
- 7th grade math is using technology to reinforce math skills using Sumdog.
- Science teachers are using Stemscopes and Explore Learning in sixth and seventh grade to teach concepts and run simulations.
- Math teachers are assessing Algebra readiness using TEA's MSTAR.
This is going to be a great year for technology at Ridgeview!
