## Math 7

**Welcome back to school - and welcome, new 7th graders, to Math!!**

My contact info: johannad@grps.k12.mt.us ; 406-224-1550 please note text, email or calls work best.

We will be using the series book: Glencoe Math, Common Core edition and we will progress through the boo, usually at the rate of 1 lesson a day. There will be quizzes in the midst of each chapter, review before each chapter test, and unit tests after the end of several chapters presenting one topic. In Math, new skills needed are built upon foundation skills. To help student performance, we will also have math fact speed exercises weekly, that will occasionally be assessed. For the most part, we will not be using calculators, although when the math facts have been mastered, calculators will be used on longer problems to speed our progress. We will also include problem-solving exercises and investigations to help master the new skills being taught.

I don't expect there will be much homework, given these students, just completion of the day's lesson as needed. Once in a while I will assign a special assignment to complete at home, and I expect students to study for tests and quizzes.

Here is a file of the course syllabus.
