The 8th grade Advanced Math class will attempt to develop the knowledge, attitude and skills, essential for success in High School. I plan to weave the 8th grade Math curriculum together with the Algebra I High School curriculum. It is my hope that the majority of the students will be prepared to take the Algebra Regents in June.


This year we will be working on polynomials, functions, linear and quadratic equations, as well as some trigonometry, geometry, radicals, probability and statistics. Each student will learn how to work with the graphing calculator. It is my goal for the students to reason abstractly as well as quantitatively.


The 7th grade Math class will be focusing on 5 critical areas this year. We will be exploring operations with rational numbers; working with expressions and equations; developing proportional relationships; working with 3 dimensional shapes and scale drawings; as well as Probability and Statistics.


My goal this year is to have the students achieve fluency in all math skills. The students will learn to reason through multi-step real life problems and persevere in solving them.


I hope to provide our students with the foundation in mathematics, necessary for them to reach their potential.
