Intermediate School News: March 5 – March 9, 2018

Cheer

On Saturday, Clarksville Academy Intermediate School Cheer Team competed in the WSA Cheer Competition held in Nashville. They placed 1st in their level, won Best Build, and were 0.3 points away from being named Grand Champion in the School Division. They also received a bid (invitation) to Finals held in Orlando this May. Congratulations to the Intermediate School Cheerleaders on their hard work and success this year!

Math

In Math class, the 6th Graders used their knowledge of Percent to work on a Project entitled “If the World were a Village of 100 People” which is based on a book written by David J. Smith. The students worked individually or in small groups presenting statistics on topics such as Food Supply, Literacy by Gender, Education, and Languages. They had to calculate fractions, decimals and percent, as well as present their data in a bar model, a hundred grid and a pie-chart. Lastly, students had to write a reflection about their topic, as well as what they have learned about the math.
