I hope you had a great fall break! We are starting a new quarter and everything will be fresh and new like the crisp fall breeze. On Tuesday students will re-cap what they learned in the sixth grade and they will get a refresher lesson on percentages. We will play a card game, a matching game, a Sprint activity to reinforce those concepts. On Wednesday I will give them a quick assessment on those skills. ON Thursday we will move into finding percents of a number. We will use that knowledge to answer a variety of percentage problems that are found in many real-life situations. They will be receiving their first Math Mania on Friday the 16th, so please check back on the site to download it later this week. We also have a new tardy policy so please make sure that your child brings home the sheet for you to sign. I have also attached it to my blog page on the right.
I have been teaching 7th grade Mathematics for 9 years. I have worked at two IB MYP schools, one in Houston, Texas, and at West End Middle for 7 years. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
