At this point we will have a test over just the first half of the chapter. Expect that test to be NEAR September 9th. I will update you on a specific test date as we get closer.



8-21-19 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.

8-21-19 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.

8-22-19 Chapter 1 test will be Tuesday, August 27. Chapter 2 begins on the 29th and is a general review of integers. It is a short chapter and test 2 will be here around Thursday, Sept. 5th.
