In our math sixth class we have been working with variables and expressions. Students have reviewed exponents as well as the properties of operations. A new property introduced to them this year was the distributive property. Moving forward, students will be using variables to write expressions and evaluating algebraic expressions. For their first project, students are planning their dream vacation. This requires students to pick a destination and research airlines, hotels, and attractions. Students will be required to complete an itinerary and total budget sheet for their stay. This project is designed to review mathematical operations with decimals.


In our seventh grade class we have been working a lot with operations with integers. Students are reviewing the rules when adding and subtracting with positive and negative numbers. To help better understand this concept, students have been using a number line as a tool. Moving forward, students will be completing their first project using coordinate planes. Students are creating and graphing an image of their choice. Their image must contain at least 60 points, all in which are labeled with the ordered pair and quadrant number.


In our eighth grade class we have been reviewing classifying numbers as irrational, rational, integers, whole numbers, and natural numbers. In addition to classifying students are comparing, estimating, graphing, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing with rational numbers. Our first project is a favorite for football fans in the classroom. Students are creating their own Fantasy Football League. Students will be drafting a QB, RB, and WR and tracking their stats per week and calculating them using the scoring system I have created. To conclude the project students will be comparing their players points to others in the class and graphing their information to determine who drafted the best league.

In our sixth grade math class we are continuing our work with equations. Students are learning how to use the inverse operation to help them solve one and two step equations. Their project this month is the “Million Dollar Project,” which is a slight continuation of their last dream vacation project but students are required to research college costs, housing, and vehicles.


In our seventh grade class we are continuing our work with integers. Students are still mastering the rules when adding and subtracting with integers. To help practice and understand this concept students are creating a timeline of their lives using integers. Students are required to calculate the date of an event to the nearest integer and then are asked to graph on a number line.


In our eighth grade class we have spend a lot of time working with the Pythagorean theorem. Students are now taking what they have learned about this and applying it in a flight plan project where they are asked to determine different distances using the Pythagorean theorem.
