Special Lunch orders are due Wednesday, February 27th

8th Grade:

Monday is Accelerated Math.  Class periods 7 & 8 will take their unit test on      nonproportional relationships on Tuesday.  This week we begin our unit on functions. First, we learn how to identify functions from tables and graphs.  Next, we learn how to describe a function.

7th Grade:

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, we begin the first of our geometry units.  We begin by learning about similar figures.  Next, we will use scale drawings to solve problems.  We will finish the week creating a scale drawing of a room in a house.

We conclude our unit on nonpropotional relationships this week. Students in class period 5 will take their unit test on Friday, February 22nd. Students in class periods 7 & 8 will take their unit test, Tuesday, February 26th. We will complete a study guide in class. Additional practice problems will be available on our Google classroom.

7th Grade

We conclude our unit on expressions and equations this week. We will have our unit test this Friday, February 22nd. Our unit test will cover writing and solving one-step and two-step equations. We will complete a study guide in class. Additional practice problems will be available on our Google classroom.

Congratulations 8th graders on your Confirmation!!

8th Grade:

Monday is Accelerated Math. On Tuesday, we continue working with the x and y-intercepts. We will analyze graphs that represent real-world situations using linear relationships. Friday is the 8th grade ski trip!

7th Grade:

Monday is Accelerated Math. On Tuesday, we begin writing and solving two-step equations. As with one-step equations, we will apply inverse operations to solve equations. We will also spend some time this week reviewing operations with integers and absolve value.

Confirmation will be celebrated is this Sunday, February 10th at 12:00 mass.  The confirmation prayer service and rehearsal for students, parents, and if possible, sponsors, is Wednesday, February 6th at 7:30 pm in church.

8th Grade:

We continue working this week with nonproportional relationships.  We will learn how to determine, as well as graph relationships using the x and y-intercepts. We will work with the slope-intercept form of an equation, y=mx b.  

7th Grade: 

Our quiz on evaluating and writing expressions is Monday.  On Tuesday, we will begin writing and solving algebraic equations. Next, we will learn how to write and solve two-step algebraic equations.
