G8 math tutoring hours change

Hi G8 parents and students. Due to my soccer coaching schedule with the MS girls, I can no longer run tutoring on Sundays after school.  The new tutoring day will be Wednesdays from 3:15-4:15 starting November 9th.  I’m also still free to meet at lunch every day 3 and 4, outside the office at the picnic tables.

Grade 8 Math

Hello G8 math students and parents. We are finishing up the instruction from our current segment (Module 4, part A: lessons 1-9) this week.  The advanced classes have their assessment this Thursday and the Math 8 classes early next week. Be sure all formative HW is done.  I will be available during tutorial Sunday after school, as well as lunch Tuesday and Wednesday (at the picnic tables outside the office) for anyone who wants some support.

Additionally, those students who plan to request a retake of the last assessment on scientific notation need to bring me their SIGNED request form by Thursday. They are required one work session with me as well as proof of some practice. The make-up test will be SUNDAY, Oct 30 after school from 3:15-4:15.

Math Module 1 Ending; test #2 this week

Hi grade 8 and grade 8 parents.  Both sections of math have finished the essential concepts of operations in scientific notation. This is the final half of module 1 and the test on this half will be this week (Wednesday 12 or Thursday 13, depending on when I see you). Students should use this week to make sure any unfinished/incomplete practice assignments are done. Areas that were most challenging should be practiced more.

A great place to look for review is the final page of each lesson’s PDF pack, after the problems we use for HW.  You will find a quick recap explaining the main idea and some more practice problems.  You can also use your IXL account to strengthen the steps or log into Khan if you need to watch some videos to review the steps.

PLEASE REMEMBER YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN REAL CALCULATOR FOR THE TEST DAY.  NO PHONES WILL BE ALLOWED, NOR WILL SHARING BE ALLOWED.
