Hello 7 Adventurer Math Students!
Students will be taught the Ohio Learning Standards in Mathematics and the eight Mathematical Practices. Students will be actively engaged and work cooperatively with their peers to deepen their problem solving and math skills, as well as make connections to real world experiences. You will have a variety of opportunities to demonstrate your understanding through the use of hands-on activities, projects, and manipulatives. Technology will be integrated into the classroom to provide challenging and engaging learning experiences for all students; thus, students will use their chrome books on a daily basis. We will utilize Google Classroom as well as my website, in which assignments will be posted using Google Calendar. Please remember to check your grades weekly on Sungard. Students have access to the online textbook and other resources with a username and password.
I promise to do whatever it takes to help you become successful in math. With a positive attitude, all you have to do is ask for help and be willing to learn new things! I am always available - the first step is to ask!
Let's commit ourselves to Be Responsible, Be Respectful, and Be Ready!
