Welcome to Love's Math class. I am planning on a wonderful, full year of learning. By teaching both 7th and 8th grade math I look forward to seeing how the curriculum develops as well as the students.I am sure there will be struggles but that will lead to growth which is our goal. Stay positive, ask questions, and keep trying. Don't give up on me and I will not ever give up on you.
Needed materials: paper (binder or notebook) and pencils
Expectations: Keep trying! Attempt all I give you. Take the notes, try all the problems, and do the homeroom. We can only fix what we have to work with. If you do thing, we have nothing to work with. Also, stay focused on class when in class. Do not distract others who need to grow same as you.
Planning period/Contact time (best time to contact me): 9:20-10:15
8th grade- We use the spiraling technique so each of the five academic strands will be covered in an introduction level of difficult. Our year will begin with number systems and progress into expressions and equations.
7th grade- Our year will begin with the number system strand. This includes absolute value, opposites, and much work with positive and negative numbers. This is normally fairly easy and a great way to start off the year. It allows students to get into a rhythm again of focus and homework.
