A Note from Mrs. Anderson

Due to my daughter’s ongoing battle with cancer and her upcoming major surgery next week, I will not be in school next week. I’m sorry that I will miss open house. Please visit Ms. Burnett for Honors Math and Ms. Koestler for Math 7. We will have the same experienced, math knowledgeable substitute teacher all week, and I will look forward to being back with our wonderful students on September 14.

Math 7 Information

Math 7 is now 2 weeks into the school year! So far we have learned the difference between rates, unit rates, and part to part ratios, and part to whole ratios. We had a quiz over these things on Tuesday September 1. The students are asking questions and understanding the concept pretty well so far! If your child received a grade below a 90, they are able to retake up to a 90. We have created a retake quiz for the students.

This week (September 8) we will be reviewing for our next quiz, and we will also be starting Chapter 2 in our books! Our quiz will be over sections 1.5-1.7 in their books and will be given on Thursday, September 10. We will continue studying proportions. Tutorials times are posted on Google classroom and your child should have a copy of the schedule as well!

Math Honors 7 Information

Our kids rocked Quiz #1. Remember Quiz/Test Retakes are always an option if you or your child feels they didn't do well on the first quiz. If your student wants to retest or retake a quiz, have them talk with their teacher and schedule a tutoring time.

Math Honors is now moving into the Pythagorean Theorem. Ask your kids to show you what that means. We encourage the kids to start looking for angles and triangles in real life situations and using the theorem to make calculations. The video below helps explain the Pythagorean Theorem in 4 minutes or less.

Math Rocks 7 Information

Our kids are "rocking" Algebra this year. The kids finished strong on their first quiz, and I am so proud of them.

Remember: students can always retest or retake a quiz. They need to schedule a time with me during tutoring time to redo their assignment.

I will be assigning specific homework problems or performance task and HOT questions on student's homework only!!!! Students will NO LONGER finish complete units at home! I am so proud of your kids and look forward to them teaching you about functions.
