**Recently in math:**

**7th grade:**

Seventh graders are continuing work on probability. This week and next students will be designing and playing their games of chance.

**8th grade:**

Eight graders have started work on the Pythagorean Theorem. ***This unit is self-paced and students have been asked to fill out a calendar showing their plan to complete the required work. All work is due by the March 31st (deadline extended due to snow days). On that date, students will be submitting their portfolio of work for the unit review. A link to the unit overview is located HERE.

Students are working on point of intersection and the methods used to find that value.
