Grades 7 & 8 Math

 

7th & 8th Grade Math

Summer 2020

Hey everyone! I hope you're having a safe and enjoyable summer! 

I'm sure we're going to have to spend some serious time reviewing at the start of the next school year, to get everyone ready for the next grade level.  It would be very helpful if you did a little review yourself this August! 

My favorite way to get my head in math mode is by watching some of my favorite math YouTubers.  If you get a chance, check out the content creators listed below. They talk about a lot of topics we will be referencing this coming year.  Find a video you like and send me an email with comments or questions at mgoehrig@cawb.org. See you soon!

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.
