The students analyzed the functions to identify their reflection, stretch, compression, and translation.

The Epic of Gilgamesh

This week, grade 9 TOPS students studied the Epic of Gilgamesh, one of the first great works of literature.

As a result, students were able to further their understanding of important elements in the text.

Kirchhoff’s Laws

To conclude their physics unit on electricity, Grade 9 students were taught Kirchhoff’s Laws, which involved the equalities found in electrical circuits. In addition, students applied the various properties of measurements in a circuit to successfully find unknown values in schematic diagrams.
