Welcome to Junior High Math!
I am excited to have your child in one of my junior high math classes this year. The math program this year will give your child the proven learning strategies emphasizing higher-order thinking skills and challenges them to aim higher and achieve more.
By having students actively engaged in their learning, the skills they acquire will prepare them for the rigor of the Common Core State Standards, college and career readiness, and beyond.
I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s participation in mathematics so that you can support and monitor his/her progress along the way. You will see your child grow in his/her ability to apply and communicate reading, writing, and mathematical concepts - qualities that are transferable to other subject areas and real-world situations. With both my support and your support, your child will have the necessary strategies to be ready for the rigor of high school mathematics.
