8th Grade Homeroom, Middle School Math
Welcome to Middle School Math… a journey of discovery!
Students in middle school math at Queen of Apostles believe everyone can do math and do it successfully. Students in middle school math at Queen of Apostles believe math can be both hard work and fun at the same time.
Middle School Math covers everything from real numbers through complex algebraic expressions. We practice standardized test taking skills each day. Each class does a couple fun projects throughout the year. I use the curriculum standards for each grade and subject level: 6th grade math, 7th grade math, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra, and then work closely with each student to ensure he or she is being appropriately challenged. Often, I individualize homework, providing extra enrichment/challenging opportunities for some students, and providing extra practice for others. I also use diverse teaching strategies to reach different types of learners.
Math is a place of learning. Math is a place of fun. Math will get you places!
