Ms. Cathy Browne, Junior High Math

Welcome to Jr. High Math! My name is Cathy Browne and this is my 7th year at St. John Fisher. I am excited to be working with your child in 7th and 8th grade math. We are going to have a terrific year!

October 30 - November 3

Posted on Oct 30, 2017

Thursday, November 2nd is the second of our high school option days. The single-gender schools will visit in the afternoon to inform students about their schools and programs.

8th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math. We will spend the remainder of the week calculating slope using coordinates or graphs.

7th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math. On Tuesday, we begin working with proportional relationships. Many real-world situations can be described by proportional relationships, as they have special characteristics.  We will learn how to identity and represent proportional relationships using tables, graphs and equations. 

October 23 - October 27

Posted on Oct 22, 2017

8th Grade

We continue this week working with proportional relationships, focusing on slope.  We will discuss the four different types of slope that can define a line. We will learn how to find the slope of a line using a graph or values from a table. We will have a quiz Friday on identifying proportional relationships using tables, graphs and equations.

7th Grade

Tuesday is our quiz on rational numbers.  A practice quiz is available on our Google classroom.  On Wednesday, we begin our unit on rates and proportionality. We will start by finding and using unit rates. We will compute units rates associated with ratios of fractions using like or different units.

 

 

October 16 - October 20

Posted on Oct 16, 2017

Tuesday is the first of our high school options days.  The co-ed schools will be here in the morning to talk to the junior high students. 

 

8th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, we continue learning how tables, equations, and graphs can represent proportional relationships. Next, we will learn how to find a rate of change or slope. We will finish the week interpreting the rate of change using a table or graph.

 

7th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math. On Tuesday, we will continue dividing rational numbers. We conclude the unit learning about tools, such as rulers, protractors, and models that can be used to help solve mathematical problems. Our quiz on rational numbers will be next Tuesday, October 24th.  

October 9 - October 13

Posted on Oct 09, 2017

I hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!

8th Grade

Our unit test on real numbers and scientific notation is Wednesday, October 11th.  Practice problems for the test can be found on our Google classroom.  On Thursday, we begin our next unit, proportional relationships. We will start by using tables, graphs and equations to represent proportional situations.

7th Grade

We continue this week on our rational numbers unit.  We will learn how to subtract, multiply, and divide rational numbers. Next, we will use different forms of rational numbers and learn how certain tools can help us solve problems. We will focus on modeling real world examples to demonstrate rational numbers.

October 2 - October 6

The Week of October 2 – October 6

8th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, we continue adding and subtracting using scientific notation. Next, we will multiply and divide using scientific notation.  Our unit test on real numbers and scientific notation will be Wednesday, October 11th.  On Friday, we will complete a study guide in class to help prepare for the test.  Additional practice problems will be available on Google classroom to help students prepare for the test.

7th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, we will take a quiz on multiplying and dividing integers.  A practice quiz can be found on Google classroom to help prepare for the quiz.  On Wednesday, we begin our next unit on rational numbers. We will convert rational numbers to decimals, then begin adding rational numbers with the same sign.
