Observe how computer networks function and make connections to the different ways we communicate (both in written form and modern forms). The students will discuss, in a whole class setting, how information can be communicated electronically and transmitted using computing devices via a network (e.g., email, social media, video conferencing, blogging).
Students will explore computing parts and use oral language and content area vocabulary to describe items, then write a descriptive sentence to describe a technology problem.
Students will be challenged with researching various problems that may occur with hardware and software for computer usage and then turn their research into posters for the class to use later if they have a problem occur past our lesson.
Students will work in groups to plan the process they will use to first determine the perimeter and then the area of a rectangle. Students will write out a detailed step by step process that can be used in different situations.

The students will identify how computing technologies have changed the world and how they are influenced by cultures by group activities, critical activities, problem solving skills and researching.
Students will explore and understand the differences between local and worldwide networks, while integrating fraction concepts.
