Welcome to Class 7B!

Congratulations to our MathCounts team! They’ve been working hard since October to prepare for the Lehigh Valley Chapter competition, which took place yesterday. Our school earned the distinction of “Top Rookie School” in the competition, which included 25 schools and over 150 contestants. I am so proud of them!
If you have not turned in your Hawk Walk address list (and stamps!!) please do so ASAP. They were due on 2/8 and the committee needs to prepare with enough supplies for letter writing day on 2/26. We also need your child’s shirt size on the address form.
There are a few seventh grade students who still need to re-register for next year. Please send in your forms and fee.
Donations of tissues would be most appreciated!

Math Class Updates
8-1 Algebra: We will continue to work in Chapter 6. There will be a quiz on Wednesday on simplifying algebraic fractions, multiplying and dividing fractions. The chapter continues with making common denominators so that we can add and subtract algebraic fractions.
7-1/8-2 Pre-Algebra: We will finish up chapter 5, learning how to add and subtract algebraic fractions and solve equations with rational numbers. There will be a quiz on Wednesday or Thursday. From there, our next topic is solving equations with variables on both sides.
7-2 Math: Many students had trouble on the test last week operations with integers. We will continue to practice in math maintenance. The next topic will be transformations in the coordinate plane. We will be looking at how to reflect figures as well as translate (or slide/push) them into a new position on a graph.

Extra help after school is available on an as-needed basis. Students are encouraged to ask questions in class and I am available most days after school if additional reinforcement is needed.
** In an effort to make students more accountable for their homework, some quizzes will be open notebook homework quizzes. I will reference a homework problem by page number and problem number, and students will open their notebook to the homework section and copy the problem, work, and answer. We will have already checked the homework and it is up to the student to bring any concerns to class. Homework quizzes should be easy 100%!!**
1. Show respect for each other, our school, each other’s property.
2. Be prepared with supplies, homework, and a positive attitude!
3. Pencils, pencils, pencils for math! I will not grade work done in pen. Save the pen for religion and other classes.
Have a Great Week!
