If you have any questions please feel free to call me before or after school at 708-450-2735 x 1116 or email me at amckenzie@sd925.org.


If you would like to be invited to join your child's Google Classroom so you can see the assignments, please send me an email from the address you would like to use and include your child's name and math period. We will mostly be using Math Techbook this year, but may on occasion have an assignment on Google Classroom.


We will have an exciting year exploring:

The Number System

Expressions and Equations

Functions

Geometry

Statistics

Probability


We will use the 8 Mathematical Practices in our journey. They are:

1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively.

3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.

4. Model with mathematics.

5. Use appropriate tools strategically.

6. Attend to precision.

7. Look for and make use of structure.

8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
