 D'VAR TORAH

D'var Torah for Parshiot Terumah/Tetzave

by Brian Dym

﻿
to read this week's D'var Torah﻿
 A Peek Inside Our Classrooms
 Ganeinu Mrs. Tammy Reid (Morah Tamara) treid@silveracademypa.org We are getting ready for  Purim  and loving it! We discussed the basics of the story and have begun making out own  megillah . The kids were interested to see that a  megillah is a single scroll as opposed to the double scroll of the  Torah . We learned about the 4  mitzvot  of  Purim : 1. Hearing the  megillah , 2. Giving  tzedakah , 3. Giving baskets of goodies  (mishloach manot)  to our friends, and 4. Having a festive  Purim  feast  (seudah) . I hope to see you all at The Silver Academy's Community Purim dinner. Don't forget your costumes!

Making sense of the wealth of data that is available today is an invaluable skill, and seventh grade students are learning some statistical skills to help them evaluate data. After students learned to find the mean, median and mode of a group of data, they decided to apply their data evaluation skills to information about their peers.

Students created a survey with ten questions they were curious about, such as "How many electronic devices does your family have?" and "How many cities have you lived in?" They asked all 5th-8th graders to take the survey. After compiling the data, they found the mean, median and mode student for each of the data sets.

Is there really a "mean" student, statistically speaking, in 5th-8th grade? Please stop by to see the students' statistical analysis outside of our classroom. You may be surprised by some of the results!
