Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

Update May 27, 2020
Students great job with Zoom classes this morning.  Please remember to complete 10 of the two-step equation problems from my Files and Documents page.

Update May 20, 2020
One and two step equations practice - please complete 10 of the two-step equations.  Problems attached to the Files and Documents page.

Update May 13, 2020
Greet Zoom class meeting this morning.  We worked on one and two-step equations.  Please continue to practice equations this week with Kahn Academy. There are practice problems with the answer key attached under "Files" on my class page for you to practice.  Please keep your work for our next virtual class meeting.

Update April 30, 2020
I really enjoyed seeing my students during our virtual Zoom class meeting yesterday.  We practiced one and two step equations.  Please go to Khan Academy and continue to practice two-step equations this week.  Email or text me with any questions or concerns.  I will see you again next Wednesday at 9:00.

Update April 20, 2020
Students please do not forget that my office hours are from 12:00 to 1:30 on Tuesdays and math review will continued to be on Wednesday's from 8:30 to 10:00.  It was great to hear from you all last week!  Please do not forget to have 7.1a, 7.1b, 7.1d and 7.1e completed for this week.  See you this Wednesday on Zoom!  I will text the information to your parents.

I hope everyone is doing well and finding ways to cope with staying home and social distancing as we all do our part to slow the progression of this virus.  I miss you all and look forward to things getting back to normal.

In math 7, this school year, we have covered the following SOL objectives: (7.1-7, and 7.11-13)
number sense (ordering/comparing fractions, decimals, percents and scientific notation), expressions, equations, inequalities, proportional reasoning, similar figures, transformations (translations and reflections), and the geometry unit (volume and surface area of rectangular prisms and cylinders).

If students are working in IXL they should choose one or two objectives each day and work there until they achieve the badges for that objective before moving to another objective. Here is the calculator link for you.

SOLs we have not covered

SOL 7.8:  The student will
a)
determine the theoretical and experimental probabilities of an event; and
b)
investigate and describe the difference between the experimental probability and theoretical probability of an event.

9:  The student, given data in a practical situation, will
a)
represent data in a histogram;
b)make observations and inferences about data represented in a histogram; and
c)
compare histograms with the same data represented in stem-and-leaf plots, line plots, and circle graphs.

SOL 7.10
The student will
a)
determine the slopemas rate of change in a proportional relationship between two quantities and write an equation in the form
y
mx to represent the relationship;
b)
graph a line representing a proportional relationship between two quantities given the slope and an ordered pair, or given the equation in ymx form where represents the slope as rate of change;
c)
determine the y-intercept, b, in an additive relationship between two quantities and write an equation in the form yxto represent the relationship;
d)
graph a line representing an additive relationship between two quantities given the y-intercept and an ordered pair, or given the equation in the form y=b, where b represents the y-intercept; and
e)
make connections between and among representations of a proportional or additive relationship between two quantities using verbal descriptions, tables, equations, and graphs
