Grades 7 & 8 Math

 

December 2019

We begin December in the Seventh grade by continuing with the solving of one step and two step equations, but we will shortly be moving on to a geometry unit which will in part be supported by a collaborative origami project the students recently completed in art class.

By way of linear equations, the Eighth grade transitions in December from solving multi-step equations to the study of functions.  Supplementing the usual material, students use Geogebra to model functions digitally and draw conclusions on the behavior of real world phenomena.  

STUDENTS IN SEVENTH GRADE AND EIGHTH GRADE MATH CLASSES HAVE ACCESS TO THE ONLINE TEXTBOOK. THE TEXT CAN BE ACCESSED AT connected.mcgraw-hill.com EACH STUDENT HAS RECEIVED HIS/HER PERSONAL USER NAME AND PASSWORD.
PARENTS CAN KEEP UP TO DATE WITH THEIR CHILD'S MATH PROGRESS THROUGH THE PARENT PORTAL ABAILABLE AT ESCHOOL DATA. THE PORTAL IS AVAILABLE THROUGH THE FOLLOWING LINK:

*********************************************************************************************** 

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.
