Welcome Eagles and Parents to 8th grade! I am so excited to be working with your child this year.
In order to make this an exciting and succesful school year, we need to work together to provide the best possible educational experience. We will use manipulatives and real world problems to learn new concepts, as well as tasks to prove that "YES", you really do use math in the world outside of school! This year we will incorporate writing into the class with reflections about our lessons and a problem of the day.
Communication will be essential this year and I will communicate via Google Classroom (students) and Infinite Campus (parents). Please make sure contact information in Infinite campus is updated to ensure you receive all class correspondence. Should you ever need to reach me please email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will contact you within 24 hours. Please encourge your student to review notes, practice daily, participate in class discussions, and ask questions.
I look forward to a year full of fun and learning!
