This will be an exciting year! Most of the year's focus will be on Decimals, Fractions, Ratios, Rates and Geometry! The students will have 8 or 9 periods of math each week and will have many opportunities to work independently, in pairs, in small groups and as a class. Being prepared and organized is key to a successful school year!
The common question I get is..."How do I study for math? " Well, math is certainly different from other subjects but still requires "studying" which really should consist of reviewing any key vocabulary, reviewing steps or processes and doing practice problems which can include paper-pencil or visiting online sites. Our textbook also offers an online site in which students can take quizzes.
