  • 7th Grade Math

    In this class we will work to improve our mental math and problem solving skills. The students will learn a variety of topics ranging from decimals, fractions, equations, ratios, geometry, graphing and probability. This is an interactive class with a combination of individual and group work. Students will also participate in hands on projects such as creating a map of the room and making tessellations.
