Welcome to 7th grade math. We offer 2 different levels
of math classes. Honors pre-algebra uses a pre-algebra textbook and will prepare 7th grade honors math students to take high school Algebra I in 8th grade. We also have a traditional 7th grade math class that uses the Glencoe Mathematics Course 2 textbook as well as other resources and activities to address our state standards.
All math students are required to have a math binder that should be divided into 4 sections: 1. "Learning Log"
4. Graded Papers
The "Learning Log" should show exactly what we did in class each day. It is a written record of each day's warm-up problems, the objective that we practiced, our notes, sample problems and activities. The "homework" section should contain all homework assignments in order by date. The "glossary" will be completed on paper that I will provide the students. It will become a list of the important math vocabulary words that we encounter throughout each semester. The "graded papers" section will contain all graded quizzes and tests that are returned to the students. Parents, please monitor your child's math binder frequently to see what we have been working on in class and to monitor your child's progress in math. Also, please click on the "Math Calendar" tab on the left side of this page to see the homework assignments and the dates of tests and important class events.
Extra help is available after school on Mondays from 2:30 until 3:30 for pre-algebra students and on Wednesdays from 2:30 until 3:30 for math students. Also tutoring is available during lunch and recess on Wednesdays.
I look forward to working with you and your child! I am certain that we will have a wonderful and successful year working together!
