I am teaching at Oakwood in the morning and at Pecan Trail in the afternoon. Tutorials and in-class work time is available every morning at Oakwood beginning at 7:45 AM in my room. Tutorials at Pecan Trail will be offered when needed.
In order to obtain sufficient practice on new skills as they are introduced, students should expect to have math homework nightly. The 7th Grade Advanced Math Calendar follows the district curriculum. The 6th Grade Advanced Math Calendar also follows the district curriculum and coincides with what is being taught in the Oakwood Advanced 6th grade classes. Homework is always due the following school day, unless specified by the teacher. Homework is given as an opportunity to solidify understanding of important math concepts, in preparation for Algebra I.
In class, students will have many opportunities to work together to gain a better understanding of 6th, 7th and 8th grade math. They will also regularly work at math stations, specifically created as enrichment to challenge them.
Since they will be taking the 8th grade Math STAAR test in April, students in Advanced 7th Grade Math will be using graphing calculators (TI-84 CE) in class frequently. A calculator is provided in class, but students may want to purchase their own to use at home.
