Math

Reflex Math   This site will be used for homework to help students become more confident/stronger in multiplication and division of 1-12 math facts.

Block 1-   Topic B will teach us about absolute values and ordering integers from least to greatest and greatest to least.  We will be taking Post B quiz and the mid module assessment mid next week. Students are working hard in their small groups getting support and gaining confidence on common core skills.  Homework will continue to be daily practice of 5 questions and either iReady or Reflex Math. Please have your students practice their math facts on a regular basis.  This can be in the car on the way to school or practice or on the computer.  I have a few sites under my classroom links to the left on my page. 

Homework will always be written in their planners and may include Eureka practice, iReady, Math's Mates and projects.  If there is any questions, students should be including this information in their planner everyday.  

**If a student is absent for any reason, it is the students responsibility to make up the missed lesson on their own time. I have provided several sites and have provided instructions to all of the students on how to do this. If additional support is needed, it is the students responsibility to let me know and schedule a time to meet with me. 

Block 2-   We are finishing up Topic C on plotting rational numbers on coordinate planes.  We will Post quiz and take the End of the Module mid of next week. Students have done a nice job with the pace and grasping the objectives of the lessons. We have started a new small group rotation in block 2 to add extra support and help build students' confidence in their Eureka math.  Homework will always be written in their planners.

Block 3-   We are working on the mid module for Module 4, or finishing it up.  Students are learning about algebraic expressions, distributive property and solving for a variable. The students that work with me are working independently at their pace and can work with others to grasp the lesson as needed.  They have been creative with me on finding ways to monitor, track and pace ourselves for success.  Students are also having the opportunity to create a math game that will/can be taught to another group of students in a different grade level. This is a way to have some choice and independency in their learning.  They will be working at their individual paces for most of the Eureka lessons using various on line sites.  They will exit out of the lesson with an exit ticket that I will evaluate to determine if further support is needed in that lesson.  I will discuss or re instruct as needed. We have students that will wrap up Module 2 in the next week and all will by winter break. I am consistently checking in with students to gauge their thoughts on this independent work structure and everyone is loving it. This helps with the rigor of the program yet gives them ownership of their work.  Students will have a variety of other activities to complete to further enhance and push their mathematical goals. We had great success with this last year and I am excited to see these learns grow with this. Mrs. Hadstedt continues meeting with her groups and provide instruction and support for those students' needs on Tuesday-Thursday.

Homework

Homework for math should always be purposeful.  Homework will look differently from day to day depending on the skills the student is working on and the work being done in the classroom. Please always check your students planner to see what his/her homework is for that day.  iReady is an intricate resource we use to help fill in 'gaps' in students' math skills, as well as challenging those students who are ready to move to higher levels of math skills.  Please let me know if this as homework will be an issue for your student.  Students will need access to a computer for homework at times. We will also be using Khan Academy, Zearn Learning, Embarc and Virtual Nerd, in which all students have set up accounts on this year.  Technology is important to what we are doing in math.
