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!

March 25 - March 29

Posted on Mar 25, 2019

8th Grade 

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, class periods 7 & 8 will take their test on Functions (Module 6). Students have a study guide to help prepare for the test. Our next unit is on Transformations and Congruence. First, we learn how to create and describe the translation of a figure.  Next, we will learn how to create and describe the reflection of a figure.

7th: Grade

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, we will work with angles. We will use our protractors to measure different types of angles. Next, we will use one and two-step equations to solve the missing angles of various figures. We will finish the week learning about the circumference and area of a circle. We will have a quiz on Thursday on area and perimeter of triangles and quadrilaterals. 

March 18 - March 22

Reminders:  Tuesday, March 19th – St. Joseph’s Day – Students may wear a “touch of red”.

8th Grade:

This week we conclude our unit on functions.  We will finish the unit using tables, graphs and equations to compare functions. We will also describe a relation given a graph or by sketching a graph when given a description. Class period 5 will take their unit test on Thursday, March 21st.  Class periods 7 & 8 will take their test on Tuesday, March 26th.  Students will receive a study guide in class to help prepare for the test.

7th Grade:

This week we will focus on quadrilaterals and three-dimensional figures.  We will review the formulas to find the area and perimeter of squares, rectangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids.   We will learn how to find the area of an irregular polygon.  We will conclude the week finding the cross figures of three-dimensional figures.

8th Grade:

Monday is Accelerated Math.  We continue this week working with functions. We will complete function tables and graph linear functions. We will use tables, graphs and equations to compare functions. We will also review rational numbers and absolute value and take a quiz on these two skills Wednesday.

7th Grade:

Monday is Accelerated Math.  On Tuesday, we begin creating a scale drawing of a room. Students will use measurements from a room in their home and create a drawing using the scale factors skills we have learned in class. Measurements are due on Tuesday.  A copy of the form distributed in class can also be found on our Google classroom.  We will also have a quiz on Thursday covering scale factor and finding the interior angle of a triangle.
