Welcome! to the 2016-2017 school year. I am looking forward to having your student in my class. Please know that 8th grade can be a challenging yet exciting time for your son/daughter. Your child’s success in math and in school is a team effort, with us working together. I know we can make this year a fun and productive one. If you have any questions and/or concerns about your child’s performance in my class, please call me @ 632-4739 ext 2303 or send me E-mail. I hope we all find this year to be successful and rewarding!
We will be learning about number systems, geometry, probability and discrete math in addition to logic and problem solving skills.
