I welcome all my   Math 8 2021-2022 students we all will work hard and try to reach our Goal of 100% this year.

    Why teaching is important: I’ve been teaching for 31 years and it’s important to me because I enjoy shaping young minds. Not many students walk into my classroom loving math. I know that math can be a challenge. I hope my enthusiasm and genuine love for the subject I teach reaches my students and that they leave my classroom liking math a little bit more than when they walked in the door.

    My goal is to help the students love math too and to build their confidence with math.Please refer to my Canvas page to stay informed on assignments and topics we are covering in class each day and some helpful links given below the page if you need some additional math help.

    Parents, please make sure you have retrieved your password to the Parent Portal on Power school, so that you can stay updated on your child's academic status in his or her classes. I am excited about building a partnership with you to help your child reach his or her full potential and to have a successful year.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email me anytime. 

    If you have any questions.

    Why Math Matters!!!!!

    We live in a mathematical world. Mathematical competence opens doors to productive futures.It is frequently called the gatekeeper subject. It is used by professionals ranging from electricians to architects to computer scientists.  
      Connecting Math to the Real World
    Students need to relate their numerical operations to real life situations
    Students should learn to choose the operation that will fulfill the need in a problem
    Methods for solving problems: mental math, calculator, computer, pencil and paper

    Who commonly uses math?

    Everybody uses math whether they realize it or not. Shoppers use math to calculate change, tax, and sales prices. Cooks use math to modify the amount a recipe will make. Vacationers use math to find time of arrivals and departures to plan their trips. Even homeowners use math to determine the cost of materials when doing projects.
    Overview of Courses: Students will see how mathematics can be used in their daily life as told above. The real-world applications will allow students to make mathematical and logical connections that they can understand and synthesize. Students will learn and investigate concepts in problem-solving. Students will also survey the mathematics that they will use in the future: algebra, probability and statistics, and set theory.
