Welcome to Math 7! You can find class notes (in PDF format) uploaded, as well as homework assignments. Below are some fun sites to check out for extra math activities. We are spending some time working on our number sense and looking at different ways to solve problems, break numbers apart and explain our reasoning. 

All students need to have their own calculator for math class this year. It is very important that they have one to do their homework and by having it in class, they are using a calculator they are familiar with, and it allows us to complete more work by not building time in for retrieving and replacing calculators. If this is a problem for your family, please let me know. 

A fun thing we do in my family is guess our bill when we go out to eat. We play "Price Is Right" rules: the closest without going over wins. We all try to estimate the total of our bill before anyone is allowed to look at it. This helps children discover what is close, what is way off, and how to better estimate. It also teaches them to ask themselves if their answer makes sense. Try it with your family and let me know how it goes!
