Don't Save your passwords!

Having Google save your password is a HORRIBLE idea! You don't want the next person that uses the Computer or Chromebook to have access to your accounts. If they delete your work, it could be lost forever. If they send out an unwanted email, you will be responsible. If they do an inappropriate search you could lose your computer privileges!

Computers and Technology

During the Computers and Technology "trimester", students will be exposed to a wide range of skills. These skills will help them become lifelong learners in our technology driven society. In addition to becoming more efficient in keyboarding, the students will explore a number of programs while developing projects to be used across the curriculum.  In addition to projects students will be given a foundation for Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship.

Coach Jones

Coach Jones is a 6th Grade basketball coach in Newton. He would love to create a spreadsheet that will show the stats for his team. When completed your spreadsheet should figure; shooting percentage for two, three and free throws. It will also need to show points scored for each player. Plus it will show the team totals for each category.


One of the kids Grandmas loves to keep track of the shots during the game. She grabbed a sheet of paper from the front desk and scribbled down the stats below.

Superb Slushie Company

The Superb Slushie Company is having a problem! You've discovered something very interesting; no matter what color your slushie is, there is only one flavor. The store has an interesting advertising approach (which is why you go there): the customer spins a spinner when they give their order and that determines the color of their slushie. How many times would you have to order to get one of each color? Explore this by spinning, collecting and then analyzing the data.


Everything you need to complete this project can be found here.
