Have a great Christmas and enjoy the break!


8th Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math. On Tuesday, we review how to use tables, graphs, and equations to represent proportional situations. We will also work to find the constant of proportionality in a given equation. We will finish the week finding a rate of change or slope. 


7th Grade

During the first part of Monday’s class, we will take a quiz converting fractions to decimals to percents.  The 2nd part of class we will have Accelerated Math. The rest of the week we will work with specific percent increase and decrease items such as mark-ups, discounts, and sales tax. We will finish the week calculating the actual cost of the “Twelve Days of Christmas”.

We wrap up our unit on triangles and angles this week.  We will learn about the Angle-Angle Similarity Postulate and identify similar triangles. We will have a quiz on Friday, December 13th.  The quiz will cover angles created by a transversal, exterior angles and remote interior angles of a triangle, and similar triangles.


7th Grade

On Monday, we will use the data we collected in gym class to calculate your maximum heart rate and target heart rate.  We will also create a graph with the data collected. On Tuesday, we begin our unit on percents. We will spend some time reviewing the process to convert fractions and decimals and percents.
