Pre-Algebra:

We will have this page linked to our team website so you can read all of the information about 7th grade gifted. I know some of you will be very nervous about the amount and level of work that is expected. In math I can assure you that we will explore many things that are familiar to you, but in much greater depth, in addition to many new mathematical ideas. This is the last year before you enter the big, bad world of higher level mathematics (Algebra, etc.). It will require consistently doing nightly homework, preparing projects, and learning new vocabulary. It will eventually require you to study for tests. For the summer it would benefit you to continue to refresh yourself on basic skills: fractions, decimals, integers. You can practice these at the Study Island website or Khan Academy. If you want some challenging math, visit the Math Counts site.

We will begin the year with multiple week review, but it will benefit you if you keep fresh over the summer with computational skills involving fractions, decimals, and integers. My goal for every student is to make them ready for Honors Algebra as 8th graders. It will happen with hard work on all parts of the educational triad (teacher, student, and parent).

 
Algebra:
We will have this page linked to our team website so you can read all of the information about 7th grade gifted. I know some of you will be very nervous about the amount and level of work that is expected. In math I can assure you that we will explore many things that are familiar to you as well as an abundance of new and exciting math. This is the first year you enter the big, bad world of higher level mathematics (Algebra, etc.). It will require consistently doing nightly homework, preparing projects, and learning new vocabulary. It will eventually require you to study for tests. It may be the first time you "don't get it" immediately in math. That's okay, as long as you continue to work at it until you do get it. It may require you getting some extra assistance. That's okay too!!! For the summer it would benefit you to continue to refresh yourself on basic skills: fractions, decimals, integers, percent​ages as we will assume that these skills are solid, a pre-requisite for Algebra (especially fractions). You can practice these at the Study Island website and Khan Academy. If you want some challenging math, visit the Math Counts site.​
