Math

Students will be using the textbook, Big Ideas . Students will have a Read and Respond Journal. Students will need to take notes and share their thinking as they learn the concepts. Students will work independently, with various partners, or in small
groups to complete their assignments.

Units of study include:

- Numerical Expressions and Factors
- Fractions and Decimals
- Algebraic Expressions and Properties
- Areas of Polygons
- Ratios and Rates
- Integers and the Coordinate Plane
- Equations and Inequalities
- Surface Area and Volume
- Statistical Measures
- Data Displays

During math we will work to increase the use of math practices. These are the habits that successful math students use to reason, solve problems and to learn new skills.

- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others,
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
