7th grade Pre-Ap Math

Minimize

Welcome to an awesome year. I am very excited to teach 7th grade this year. We will learn and grow a lot as mathematicians. Focus will be on functions, patterns, algebra and geometry. We will cover all 7th grade and 8th grade content to prepare you to Algebra I next year in 8th grade.

Please take a moment to review the syllabus, supply list and first six weeks roadmap. As you all know, daily homework and events such as tests, quizzes or projects will be posted on the calendar. I will upload the links used in the classroom such as edmodo, Holt textbook etc. and your password will be provided in class.

Enjoy last days of your summer and work on your math packet if you have not done so yet. Looking forward to see you at WAIS Welcome Saturday 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.
