This class is for advanced 7th graders that are taking 8th grade math curriculum. This class is fast paced and we cover two to three lessons a week.We work out of the 8th grade envision 2.0 book and the online curriculum is called Pearson Easy Bridge. You can access the online curriculum through rapid identity on your child's chrome book.
A few of the topics that we cover are real numbers, analyze and solve linear equations, functions, systems of linear equations, congruence and similarity, and pythagorean theorem. Pearson has many great resources that will help in supporting each lesson. Within each topic, there will be two or three quizzes and a test over the entire topic. I try to incorporate a project within every trimester.
Math classes are two periods, so we have plenty of time to learn and practice the lessons in class. At least two days a week are used for small group work where I work with four to eight students. In small group, I could be reteaching the lesson, working on practice problems from the lesson, working on an enrichment assignment, or reviewing for an upcoming quiz or test.
