Grades 7 & 8 Math


7th & 8th Grade Math

September 2020 

This year we are following carefully the NYS modules aligned with Common Core standards.  Homework assignments are to be completed in notebooks, with answers submitted online in the form of a Google Quiz.  Notes from each class and video lectures to be viewed at home will also be uploaded to the Google Classroom page.  Students will also be using the Desmos Activity Builder to participate in activities from home throughout the school year. 

All seventh graders are required to be in Mr. Goehrig’s Personal Zoom Meeting by 8:15am on the days they are remote, and eighth graders are expected at 9:50 am.  Office hours on Wednesday are between 11:00 and 12:00 for seventh grade, and from 12:00 to 1:00 for eighth grade. 

The eighth grade begins the year with an investigation into exponents and scientific notation, while the seventh gets a fresh look into proportional relationships.   

Please e-mail if you have any questions or difficulties.

7/8 Math Overview: The Junior High students develop a strong foundation in the concepts of algebra and geometry, moving them from elementary to high school mathematics. Using real life situations to present mathematical concepts, enables the students to see the importance of Math in their everyday lives. Hands-on activities lead students from concrete concepts to the abstract. Students explore the patterns in Math as problem solving tools and explore using a variety of methods to arrive at a single solution to a given problem.

All Junior High Math students will experience the format of the New York State test as well as the wording of the questions. Being familiar with the test format will lead to less "test anxiety" when taking the assessment in April of eighth grade.
