• 7th Grade Pre-AP Mathematics

    Welcome to 7th grade pre-AP mathematics!  This is essentially an 8th grade class with only some 7th grade material included.  Those who are ready by the end of the year will move on to Algebra the next school year.  It is expected that anyone who enters this class has successfully mastered approximately 75% of the 7th grade curriculum in previous years.
    This is a pre-AP class so higher level thinking will be a part of class each and every day.  Our focus will include real numbers, similarity and dilations, proportions, slope, functions, triangles (including Pythagorean Theorem), equations, inequalities, geometry, data analysis, probability, and personal financial literacy.  Homework will be assigned most every day.
    Additional Practice
    If you need additional practice, I have two sites for you.
          This is a subscription site but it does offer some free problems each day.
    I keep the website that you are currently in updated on a regular basis.  I encourage you to check this resource daily.
    I will also use Remind to send notifications.  Click on the link for instructions.

  • October 18, 19, 20 - Click here for the notes. The assignment is the last page of the attachment

    On Wednesday, October 18 we took notes related to writing equations in slope intercept form

    The assignment is the Lesson 6 Extra Practice worksheet as well as page 239 (1-7).  you may work directly on the worksheet but the bookwork must be on notebook paper.  Use your notes, the book, and the online videos from ConnectEd (your book online) as a guide.  This assignment is due by the end of the period on Friday, October 20.

    I did not pick up page 199 and page 207 yet.  That will be turned in early in the period of Thursday, October 19.

    I will be absent again Thursday and Friday (I appreciate the thoughts and prayers many of you have spoke of regarding my mother).  Tutorials will resume Monday morning at 8:15 as usual.  Remember, you may also attend the principal's study hall in the library at 8:15 each morning.

    Our test is Wednesday, October 25.  On Friday, the first review will be given at the end of the period.  It is due by the start of the period Tuesday.

    On Monday we took notes regarding proportional relationships and direct variation.  It is recommended that the assignment is started Monday as homework.  On Tuesday, class time to continue the assignment will be provided with a subsitute.  The assignment is due at the start of the period on Wednesday.


    Page 199 (1, 3, 4 ,9)

    We describes how the slope of a line relates to similar triangles.

    We corrected yesterday's assignment.  Anyone who needs a second chance may complete page 183 (1-8)

    We did not take "notes" although the book does offer some decent examples.  The assignment is page 191 (1-4).  You may work directly in the book this time.  Please DO NOT tear out the page.

    We will work with Imagine Math tomorrow.  You are welcome to bring headphones is you wish.

  • October 10 - Click here for the samples

    Create a situation and resulting page similar to the samples.

    If your last names begins with A-M, then create a proportional situation.

    If your last name begins with N - Z, then create a non-proportional situation.

    Choose an item, a price, and if needed, a starting fee for your situation.

    Use graph paper and use a straightedge.


    Read pages 170 and 171
