Together We Make Learning A Way Of Life

  • Welcome to Seventh Grade Mathematics!

    I use SCHOOLOGY to post assignments, quiz dates, and other important information.  Please login to your Schoology account and access your math class for more specific information.

    Pre-Algebra 7 Description

         This course is designed to transition advanced sixth grade students to the topics and teaching styles of eighth grade.  Basic manipulation of fractions, decimals, ratios, and percents will not be emphasized, so students who enter the course should already feel very comfortable with these topics.  Seventh grade abstract ideas, such as algebra and geometry, will be explored in-depth in conjunction with formulas and variables.  For example, students will be challenged to create multi-step equations to solve complex word problems.  Exploration of polynomials, linear equations and the graphical representations of functions will allow students enhance their higher level thinking skills. Transformational geometry will encourage students to link visual representations and algebraic patterns with formulas and functions.

         A scientific calculator is required for both home and classroom use.  The TI-30XIIS made by Texas Instruments is recommended. Students will take the New York State Assessment exam in late April, complete quarterly assessments at the end of each marking period, and take a final exam in June. 

    Math 7 Description

         This course is designed to assist students as they make the transition from the concrete subject of arithmetic to more abstract subjects, such as algebra and geometry.  This is accomplished by working with formulas, variables, variable expressions, equations, and inequalities. Subjects including fractions, ratios, percents, exponents, roots, and probability will be studied in further depth for greater mastery.

         A scientific calculator is required for both home and classroom use.  The TI-30XIIS made by Texas Instruments is recommended. Students will take the New York State Assessment exam in late April, complete quarterly assessments at the end of each marking period, and take a final exam in June.

    • Learning Center (part of the Library)

      Before school (8:00 AM) - there are math teachers that staff the LC in the morning daily. It is advised to arrive no later than 7:45 to ensure a spot. 

      During school - students may go to the LC during study halls, a teacher is there each period.  There is also Math Success lunch, located in the room connected to the larger (north) cafeteria, which Mrs. Streit holds on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

      After school Monday through Thursday - a math teacher is available daily to assist students. A late bus is available to take students home at 4:40.
