It is hard to believe that we have 10 more days left of school!!!! Over the next 2 weeks, students will be completing a Geometry Town project and a Budgeting project. Finals will be given May 20th and 23rd. Students are expected to complete both projects and they will be done at school. These will be the last 2 major grades for this school year. I have had SEVERAL students and parents ask about extra credit. The extra credit has been the same since January 5th; IXL. com. This is a website the school pays for that students can use anytime. I have already done one sweep through my data to adjust grades based on what students have completed. I will do one more before school is over. Students may complete practice on IXL through May 20th! You must complete activities within your grade level. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me!
Next week is Conference Week! Make sure you bring your student to the conference because it is student led!
I wanted to update everyone on what's going on in math.Both sixth and seventh graders have completed their first unit tests and are into their second unit. Sixth graders are focusing on rates, ratios, and percents while seventh graders are working on algebraic expressions. Seventh grade has just wrapped up with ITBS testing, so their schedules should be back to normal. Please make sure homework is being completed and turned in the day it is due. Students, if you would like more practice, their are workbook pages you can complete. At the end of every lesson in the book, their are pages marked "EXTRA PRACTICE." These pages can be done on your time. However, do not tear them out and only work on these pages. The Independent practice pages are completed in class. Also, there are tons of resources online that can be used to help you study! Make sure you are doing something every night to help reinforce what is done at school!
Attention 7th Graders! Here are some games you can play online that will help you with integers and their operations. Have fun!
It is a brand new school year and I am very excited about new things. I hope you all had a wonderful summer!! This year, I will be teaching both 6th and 7th grade math. When you visit my blog, make sure you know which grade level I am discussing. The first thing sixth graders review and learn about is multi-digit decimal operations. We have been working on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing with multi-digit decimals. This week, we have been focusing on division with decimals and finding the least common multiple of two numbers. Next week, we will move into greatest common factor and the distributive property. If you need extra help, please refer to your students workbook and look in the first chapter. Seventh graders have been talking about integers. We reviewed the topic of integers and introduced operations. Students now know how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide with integers. If you need extra practice with this concept, please refer to the first chapter in your workbook. Please feel free to comment on any post with either a statement or a question! I will update again soon!
I cannot believe my 7th year of teaching school is over! This year has been wonderful and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Please feel free to go back to the posts from this year and visit the sites I posted so you can stay up to date with you math knowledge. I hope all of you have a wonderful summer!
Here are some links to some review lessons and activities involving integers, rational numbers, absolute value, and the coordinate plane.
It is so hard to believe that Spring Break is almost here. I know some of you are looking for ways to review over the break! Here are some websites containing review lessons and games to help you with geometry and statistics. I hope this helps!
