Class Introduction:

Welcome to 7th Grade Pre-Algebra! We are using the textbook by McDougal/Littell, which will go home by the end of September.

I use a Promethean board and post all of our class notes and homework assignments here on my web site.

This class will be different from the traditional math classroom experience. After the first few weeks of school this fall, we will transition to a Flipped Classroom style to use throughout the rest of the school year. In this style, students will read textbook information and take notes at home as homework. In class the following school day, students will complete exercise problems that are traditionally done at home. This enables students to arrive in class with content instruction and work collaboratively with teacher support as they practice these new concepts.

If you need help, be sure you are using all of your resources: comp. book notes (completed at home and in class), textbooks, corrected assessments, peers, and teacher. I am available right before, during, and after class.

I am so excited to share my love of math and learning with you! If you need to contact me, please don't hesitate to e-mail me at
