Mrs. Raben

Welcome, and blessings to you! I am very happy to be a part of this wonderful school.  I have a great love for mathematics and look forward to imparting as much of that love as possible to my students! Join me in this QUEST!

8th Grade Homeroom

Oct. 21-22 – Parent/Teacher conferences via Zoom


Oct. 23 – No School

Oct 30th – Halloween Party in the afternoon

*Remember that the Bible verse at the beginning of each chapter in the We Live Our Faith textbook will be worth 5 points of extra credit on the chapter test:)

8-31 – We have finished Chpt 1 and had our test today. The chapters are short, so we usually try to cover one a week which means a Religion test about once a week. I will hand out the ‘review’ worksheet for each chapter at the beginning and we will fill it out as we go.  Our next review will be this Friday and I plan to give  the Chapter 2 Test next Tuesday.

8-31-20  We have started with Chapter 1. We begin by learning special divisibility rules, then we move to prime and composite numbers, powers and exponents, and order of operations. At this point we will have a test over just the first half of the chapter.

10-19-20  We are finishing up chapter 1. There will be a test over lessons 5,6,7, and 8 on Thursday, Oct. 22.   I am going to be very selective in chapter 6 and cover lessons 6 and 7 on mean, median, mode, and range. We will quiz on just that material and then move to working with decimals. We will have a small test on that material most likely on 11-2.



8-31-20 Welcome to 6th grade math class! We have begun Chapter 1 which will cover exponents, order of operations, variables and expressions, equations, properties, a bit of measurement, and finishes with scientific notation. Expect a test in early September – likely after Labor Day.

10-19-20 We had our chapter 2 test today. Tomorrow we begin Chpt 3.

8-31-20 Welcome to 7th grade math class! We have begun Chapter 1 which will cover variables and expressions, integers and absolute value, adding integers, subtracting integers, multiplying and dividing integers, writing expressions and equations, and will finish with solving equations using addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Expect a test around the second week of September.

10-19-20 We are finishing up Chpt. 2 and will have a test on Monday, Oct. 26. Chapter 3 contains the Pythagorean Theorem and a test over that chapter will likely the week of 11/9
