# Grades 6, 7 & 8 Math

Welcome to a new school year!

All assignments are posted in Google Classroom and students who miss class are still expected to complete and submit assignments. Students will be able to access classwork at any time through any device with internet capabilities. Announcements, upcoming and missing assignments, and digital copies of classroom materials will all be in Google Classroom. Additionally, students can see their grade at any time using Google Classroom by going to the classwork tab and clicking on “view your work”. Parents are encouraged to log into Google Classroom using their child’s login information.

Students are responsible for storing and keeping their materials organized. Extra copies of handouts will not be printed. All handouts will be posted in Google Classroom and students can record their answers on looseleaf paper.

Math Tutoring:  Ms. Franklin is available every Tuesday from 2:30 - 3:30 pm. Students interested in tutoring will need to complete a CAWB after-school program permission slip and a tutoring permission slip.

For full credit on math assignments, students must:

•  show work for any and all calculations.
•  simplify any fractions.
•  write a FULL HEADING (first AND last name, class, and date).
•  restate the question and write in complete sentences when asked to explain.
•  write final answers to word problems in a complete sentence.
•  round decimal answers to the nearest hundredth.
•  include units or labels in answers (no naked numbers).
•  put a box around final answers when showing work.

What is happening September 2022:

Grade 6 Up first for 6th grade is operations with fractions and decimals. Families can get involved at home by doing activities together such as baking or grocery shopping, that involve fraction or decimal amounts.

Grade 7 We are starting off the year discussing positive and negative numbers and the purpose of using the negative sign before an amount. Families are encouraged to watch weather reports together and discuss changes in temperature. Another great way we use positive and negative numbers in everyday life is when we are keeping track of scores in games.

Grade 8 We begin with a deeper look into the Real Number System. Students may begin to recognize perfect squares or perfect cubes in their surroundings. You can join in by asking what makes a square perfect and looking for perfect squares around the house. Common examples of perfect squares include items like floor or ceiling tiles and table coasters.

 6th Grade Objective Topic 1:  Use Positive Rational Numbers I can add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and decimal numbers. Topic 2:  Integers and Rational Numbers I can use number lines and the coordinate plane to solve problems. Topic 3:  Mathematical Expressions I can write and evaluate expressions with whole numbers, decimals, and fractions. Topic 4:  Equations and Inequalities I can write equivalent equations and substitute a value for a variable to solve an equation. Topic 5: Ratios and Rates I can write and compare ratios and find unit rates. Topic 6:  Percentages I can find the percent of a whole amount. Topic 7:  Area, Surface Area and Volume I can calculate area, surface area, and volume of polygons. Topic 8:  Display, Describe & Summarize Data I can find the mean, median, mode, and range of a set of values.

 7th Grade Objective Topic 1: Rational Number Operations I can add, subtract, multiply, and divide positive and negative numbers. Topic 2: Proportional Relationships I can use equations, tables, and graphs to represent proportional relationships. Topic 3: Percent Problems I can solve percent problems, including those involving percent change and simple interest. Topic 4: Expressions I can write, evaluate, and simplify expressions by using properties and by combining like terms. Topic 5: Equations and Inequalities I can analyze word problems to write and solve two-step equations and inequalities. Topic 6: Statistics I can establish whether a sample is representative of a population and make qualitative and quantitative inferences from a sample data set. Topic 7: Probability I can develop and use a probability model to make estimates. Topic 8: Geometry I can find measures of angles, circles, 3D figures, and scale drawings.

 8th Grade Objective Topic 1: Real Number System I can convert between fractions and decimals and evaluate perfect squares and cubes, exponents, and operations with scientific notation. Topic 2: Linear Equations I can analyze graphs, equations, and tables representing linear relationships. Topic 3: Functions I can construct a linear function to model a relationship using an equation in the form y=mx+b. Topic 4: Bivariate Data I can construct a scatter plot graph and draw a trend line and use the slope and y-intercept of the trend line to make a prediction. Topic 5: Systems of Equations I can create and examine graphs of linear systems of equations to determine the solution. Topic 6: Congruence and Similarity I can determine if two figures are similar and use angle relationships to find unknown angle measures. Topic 7: Pythagorean Theorem I can use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the missing side length of a triangle. Topic 8: Surface Area and Volume I can find the surface areas and volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres.
