Hello Everyone!

6th Grade had their first chaper test on Friday. Students had two days of in-class review and a practice test to help them prepare for the test. Students will be allowed to do test corrections to increase their grade, test corrections are due Wednesday. This week we weill be working on graphs found in statistics, bar graphs, dot plots, venn diagrams, histograms and stem and leaf plots. On Friday we have a homework quiz, I select questions directly from the homework that they have completed during the week.

7th Grade this week we will be finishing up Chapter 1 with our study of compound probability. We will spend Wednesday and Thursday reviewing and will have a Chapter 1 test on Friday.

8th Grade last week we switched from Common Core Course 3 to Integrated Math 1. We will be practicing our basic math skills each day with our course warm ups. The first thing students do each day is answer 5 warmup/review questions which they hand in on  Friday. This week we will be studying functions and graphs and learn about the difference between a function and a relation as well as discussing the concept of domain and range. Students have homework monday therough thursday and on friday we have a homework quiz which takes questions directly from the weeks homework.

Hello Parents and Students!

6th Grade has been working on converting word problems to equations and working with types of numbers. This week we will begin on Monday with looking at factors, prime and composite numbers as well as reviewing odd and even numbers. Tuesday and Wednesday we will be reviewing Chapter 1. Thursday we will test on Chapter 1 and Friday we will learn about mathletics and play an interactive group math game.

7th Grade has been studyiing probability. Monday we will review changing between fractions, decimals and percents, Tuesday we will work on adding fractions so we can learn how to find compound probabilities on Thursday. Friday we will have a homework quiz-the homework quiz will be problems taken from the homework students have done during the week. We will then learn about mathletics and play an interactive math game.

8th Grade has been reviewing concepts learned last year. Last week we reviewed working with integers, the order of operations and graphing on the coordinate plane. This week we will finish reviewing so we can begin learning new material. This week we will review combining like terms and solving linear equations. Friday we will have a homework quiz-the homework quiz will be problems taken from the homework students have done during the week. We will then learn about mathletics and play an interactive math game.

What an exciting first week. I really enjoyed getting to know the students! Last week we took a pretest and settled in to the new school year. This week we will begin working hard on becoming math masters!

6th Grade: This week we will be working with area, perimeter, paterns and data

7th Grade: This week we will be working with data and probablility

8th Grade: This week we will be working with linear equations and graphs

Each Friday we will have a quiz on what we learned  during the week. Fridays will also be days that we review basic math concepts that students have already learned, such as fractions, decimals and percents.

I will be posting the hw to this blog each day so check back each day if you want to see the assignments
