Grades 7 & 8 Math

 

7th/8th Grade Math

February 2020

The Seventh grade continues it's study of geometry but now in terms of the surface area and volume of 3D figures. Once again with reference to the origami project the students recently completed in art class, as well as through the use of other manipulatives we explore nets and constructions of various composite figures and their properties. After break we begin probability with some hands on experiments.

The Eighth grade also continues with geometry. Practicing more with a compass and straight edge, we explore translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations as we prepare to move into similar and congruent figures.

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.
