8th Grade Math

With Ms. Johnston - Week of March 21st

In Our Class

Last week students finished up Unit 6 and began learning about systems of equations! This week students will learn how to write systems of equations from real world scenarios, graph systems of equations, and solve systems of equations using substitution.

Students will also be receiving a Milestone review packet on Monday! This packet will be part of students homework each night. We will be going over it in class every day, and it will be collected before Spring Break for a TEST Grade. This is a great way for students to review the material we have learned all year and study for the Milestone!

Students will receive only ONE copy of the review packet, so please remind them how important it is not to lose it.

Students should be in class every day, including quiz/test days. When students miss class they should get notes from the class website and come in for tutoring on Thursday morning at 7:45. This will keep them up to date on what we are learning in class.

If a student is not in class for a quiz/test, it is their responsibility to schedule a time to make it up. Once the student makes up the quiz/test, their grade will change from an M (missing) to their actual quiz/test score in infinite campus.

Just a reminder...
Students should have their interactive notebook every day in class! We use the interactive notebooks to take notes (so that all notes are in the same place). Students are allowed to use this notebook on their quizzes and tests.

Students have a folder that should stay in the classroom where they can keep any worksheets or assignments we work in on class (also allowed to be used on quizzes and tests).
