HOBY leadership conference

The Huge O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference is a four day experience for students in their sophomore year. Each high school may select two students to attend. This experience prepares young men and women for lifetime of leadership- from taking a leadership position at school to starting a non-profit in their community and everything in between.
HOBY’s leadership experience is one-of-a-kind program pathway for young people across the country, with proven results. We are proud to announce that sophomores Kailey Drake and Drew Shaw have been selected as Oxbow High School’s student ambassadors to this year’s HOBY conference. Congrats to this years winner!

Mrs. Sutherland’s Math Class

8th Grade:

Solving Equations:  In 8th grade math students have been working flexibly between modeling both proportional and nonproportional linear relationships using tables, graphs and equations. They can identify, represent, and interpret linear relationships.  Students are beginning to develop skill in areas that are traditionally known as algebra. Students are exploring properties of equality and solving for an unknown. Equality is maintained by adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing by the same quantity on each side of the equation.    

7th Grade:

The focus in 7th grade math has been on understanding and developing systematic ways to add, subtract, multiply and divide positive and negative numbers.  Working with integers has awarded us with the opportunity to review operations with whole numbers. Students have spent time learning the standard algorithm for adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.

Challenge:

Understanding Similarity:  In 7th grade challenge students are looking to find relationships among figures that have been stretched or shrunk.  They are analyzing the resulting changes in properties of the figures, such as area and perimeter. Similarity will also be used to find the heights of real objects.  The this work is the beginning or proportional reasoning. By the end of this unit students will know how to create similar figures, how to determine whether or not two figures are similar, and how to predict the ratios of the lengths and area of two similar figures. In addition students have begun with with algebraic expressions, simplifying expression by combining like terms and using the distributive property.  This work will lead them to solving simple equations.

Slinky experiment….

Dr. Carson’s 8th grade class is learning the types and properties of waves. The slinkys are used to define wavelength, frequency, amplitude and energy of waves.

See what’s happening today…

Senior Presidential Campaign 2018

Senior Presidential Campaign 2018

Mr. Chobanian’s American Government class was assigned to do their own presidential campaigns. There were different roles for the students to choose from: the presidential candidate, speech writers, campaign advertisement creator, negative campaign advertisement creator, party activists, campaign poster creator and lobbyist.
Each of the classes were assigned these same roles and were to campaign against the other half of the class.
Students and faculty from around the building were invited into the election and listened to each presidents speech, designed to be similar to the primary election, then they took a vote!

Izzy Yelle, Jacob Giesing and Calvin Cook! Congrats to all winners!!!

Jacob and Calvin will move on based on the percentage they won by. The general election will take place during callback one this coming Tuesday (12/11) in the auditorium. It will consist of speeches, political advertisements, and a question and answer-type debate with the audience!


Here are some photos from one of the campaigns today!
