This Week

Big picture


We will be working on volume and surface area of 3D shapes with a small quiz on Thursday.

*A Reminder*

Please talk with your student to see if they have a binder to keep their math notes in. This binder can be brought daily or kept in my classroom.

All of the lessons notes will be added to schoology as we finish each lesson. If you or your student have any questions please email me at and I will do my best to answer questions in a timely manner, also if your student is confused with one problem have them circle it and ask about it in class the next day. I hope you all have a great week =).
