    It was great meeting all of my students so far this week!!! :)

    This week we have gone over the rules and procedures of the class and reviewed those for the school.  They began their iReady Diagnostic test.  This allows us to make sure that they are in the correct math class. 

     

    8/20/18

    This week the students continued to work on their iReady Diagnostic Test.  This test was used to determine if students were in the correct class, so it was important.  I also introduced Khan Academy to some students, but I went through and got everyone into Khan Academy and working.  This was necessary because Khan Academy will be used as a review tool, and the students will get graded on their completion of the assignments (Tip: the videos must be watched... if they are skipped you won't get credit in Khan Academy, nor when it is graded).

    This week we will get into the Number System Unit.  Starting with Math Florida Standard MAFS.7.NS.1.1.  There is a link on the main page to the standards, but this standard covers their knowledge of whole numbers and begins the use of negative and positive numbers. Right now we are starting with adding and subtracting.  They are also assigned Khan Academy for homework.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.

     

    9/3/18

    This week we were still working with the Number System Unit.  This week we have moved deeper into adding and subtracting integers.  Everyday we work on multiplication facts for bellwork.  I have noticed that many of the students struggle with them.  Please have the students to practice these.  They are also assigned Khan Academy for homework.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.

    This week we were still working with the Number System Unit.  This week we are not only covering integers, but also negative and positive fractions and decimals.  If we as a class are struggling with the concept, I will go back to review and then pick up the grade level skill once we have reviewed.  Everyday we work on multiplication facts for bellwork.  I have noticed that many of the students struggle with them.  Please have the students to practice these.  They are also assigned Khan Academy for homework.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.   **This week the students will have 2 quizzes... one on multiplication facts and another on adding and subtracting integers**

     

    9/17/18

    This week we were still working with the Number System Unit. This week we are still working on negative and positive rational numbers.  When the skill was introduced last week some of the students struggled with the concept, so we are doing more activities and lessons to help those students understand.  As a teacher if I notice that as a class  they are struggling with the concept, I will go back to review and then go on.  Everyday we work on multiplication facts for bellwork.  I have noticed that many of the students struggle with them.  Please have the students to practice these.  They are also assigned Khan Academy for homework.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.

    This week we were still working with the Number System Unit. This week we are still working on negative and positive rational numbers, but we have moved on to multiplication and division.  When the skill was introduced last week some of the students struggled with the concept, so we are doing more activities and lessons to help those students understand.  As a teacher if I notice that as a class  they are struggling with the concept, I will go back to review and then go on.  Everyday we work on multiplication facts for bellwork.  I have noticed that many of the students struggle with them.  Please have the students to practice these.  They are also assigned Khan Academy for homework.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math. 

     

    10/1/18

    This week we were still working with the Number System Unit. This week we are still working on negative and positive rational numbers, and this week we continued with mulplication and division.  We also reviewed addition and subtraction of rational numbers.  The students participated in a 2-day review game of the unit in preparation of the test on Tuesday.  Everyday we work on multiplication facts for bellwork.  I have noticed that many of the students struggle with them.  Please have the students to practice these.  They are also assigned Khan Academy for homework.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math. 

     

    10/8/18

    This week we were completing our time with the Number System Unit (for now). This week this week the students took their OPEN NOTES test.  They were able to use all of the lecture notes (printed out for them to fill in) that were in there interactive notebook.  They had unlimited time to complete this test.  There was also a binder check this week.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.

     

    10/16/18

    This week we started our time with the Expressions and Equations Unit. They started off with simplifying expressions and combining like terms.  I noticed a bit of a struggle (due to not remembering adding and subtracting negative numbers), so we will be reviewing these skills next week.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.

     

    10/22/18

    This week we are still in the Expressions and Equations Unit. Last week they started off with simplifying expressions and combining like terms, and I noticed a bit of a struggle (due to not remembering adding and subtracting negative numbers).  So  this week we reviewed the skill to give them more of an opportunity to understand.  This was also because of the monthly growth check that the students had to do in iReady.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.

     

    10/29/18

    This week we are still in the Expressions and Equations Unit. This week we moved to the next step in the unit, and that was to expand and factor expressions.  We covered the lectured notes, as well as did extra activities.  They will always have homework, and it will be in Khan Academy.  It is assigned on Mondays and it is due by 11:59 pm on Sundays.  If the students don't have access to a computer at home, they need to see me immediately to discuss a plan to get the homework done, but they will still be responsible for the work because it is important to their growth in math.
