  • Binder with dividers
  • Pencils, pencils, pencils!!

    Students are not allowed to do work in pen

Students are required to bring all materials to class each day.


“The Common Core concentrates on a clear set of math skills and concepts. Students will learn concepts in a more organized way both during the school year and across grades. The standards encourage students to solve real-world problems.”

This year in the 7th grade, students will:

  • analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems
  • apply and extend previous understandings of operations with fractions
  • use properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions
  • solve real-life and mathematical problems using numerical and algebraic expressions and equations
  • draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them
  • solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area, surface area, and volume
  • use random sampling to draw inferences about a population
  • draw informal comparative inferences about two populations, investigate chance processes and develop, use, and evaluate probability models.

This year in the 8th grade students will:

  • learn that there are numbers that are not rational, and approximate them by rational numbers
  • how expressions and equations work with radicals and integer exponents

  • understand the connections between proportional relationships, lines, and linear equations

  • analyze and solve linear equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations

  • define, evaluate, and compare functions

  • use functions to model relationships between quantities

  • understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem

  • solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres

  • investigate patterns of association in data


Students will have advanced notice of all quizzes and tests. A study guide will be provided a day or two before a test. Students will have the option of doing test corrections. Half credit will be given for this work and added onto the original grade. Student’s will also have
the option to retake a test. This is their responsibility to schedule for after school.


Grades are earned by actively participating in class, and completing classwork, the interactive notebook, projects, tests, and quizzes.
Homework is an important part of our students’ academic growth and development. As part of our 21st century learning expectations, the habits of good organization and time management skills are integral to successful task completion. Homework is expected to be turned in on the due dates assigned. Failure to do so will impact the grade on homework. If a student fails to do homework, he/she may be told to call home and make arrangements to stay after.
The school-wide homework policy is as follows:
one day late = 10 pts. off
two days late = 20 pts. off
three days late = 30 pts. off
no credit for work turned in after 3 days late. 
Any exceptions to this policy will require approval by both teacher and administration. Students having difficulty completing homework should make arrangements for help with their teacher during HIP or after school.


Every day is important in our class. Student’s success depends on being on time for class each and every day. If a student is absent, it it his/her responsibility to get work and the notes that were missed. All missed work will be in the assignment crate in the math room and will be the student’s responsibility upon returning to class. Students get two days, for every one day they are out, to make up the work.
