Welcome to Mrs. Wade's Seventh Grade Math
Teacher: Mrs. Cathy Wade, firstname.lastname@example.org
This is my first year teaching math at St. Clare School and I am delighted to be here!
In my 15 years in education, I have taught at St. Thomas More and Christ the King in the Portland Archdiocese and at St. John's in the Seattle Archdiocese.
I believe that education is the process of uncovering, discovering - seeing with new eyes the wonders about us. The greatest joy for me in teaching is to be part of the "Aha!" moments in the classroom. My role is to organize, plan and prepare so that I can support and challenge students to make connections, to become competent, confident mathematicians.
I look forward to working with you!
The Archdiocese and the State of Oregon are among the first in the nation to adopt the new national math standards. These standards teach fewer topics each year, but cover each topic to more depth. The students will see the topics again when they use them but not as teaching points.
7th Grade will cover the following topics:
First Trimester - Rational Numbers and Linear Equations
Second Trimester- Proportions and Similarity
Third Trimester - Surface Area and Volume of Three-Dimensional Shapes
These topics will be covered and previous topics will be reviewed as needed to maintain students skills.
Students can expect a daily assignment. Usually some class time will be given for students to start their assignment. This allows them to ask any questions they might have about the assignment before they take it home.
