  • For the week of December 17, 2018
    This week will be one of those rare but exciting weeks in math: NO HOMEWORK! When does that ever happen?!
     
    However, beginning in January, any student who doesn't do assigned homework for math will be a required to attend mandatory after school tutoring. This is not for punitive measures. This is to help ensure students will have the necessary understanding of the concepts in order to be successful on upcoming assessments.
    I will be sending home more information regarding this after the break, but If you have any questions regarding this, please email me.
     
    Please remember that 30 DreamBox lessons are due by Friday, December 21. This was announced early in the quarter, and the 30 lessons are cumulative from October 15 to December 21. These 30 lessons will be recorded as an assessment grade for the quarter 2 gradebook.
     
    Monday: Check Unit 4 homework for Lessons 2, 3, 4, and 5
    Minute 9/10 due on Friday. This can be turned in early!
    Tuesday: MI testing
    Wednesday: MI Testing; holiday math
    Thursday: MI Testing; holiday math; DreamBox
    Friday: DreamBox

  • We are beginning Unit Four which revisits proportional relationships and extends the study to fractions, decimals and percents! 

     

    All homework will be due on Monday, December 17! 

    The weekly warm-up, Minute 7 and Minute 8, will be due on Friday, December 14. These papers are a review of basic skills and are not eligible for improvement. Students are encouraged to do their best the first time and submit completed work on Friday. If a problem is confusing, students are encouraged to ask for help during class or at one of the many tutoring sessions scheduled for math. 

    7th grade math will also be taking a weekly quiz on Thursday which will be checking for understanding of Lessons 1-4. Students are encouraged to stay for tutoring prior to the quiz if homework was a challenge or if additional instruction is needed.

    5. a) Yes it is proportional because the line would be straight and it would go through the origin.

    5. b) It might not be exactly proportional because there could be error with measuring or with calulating the circumference. 

    6. 1- circumference

        2 - area

  • DreamBox requirement for November 9:

    Students need to have AT LEAST 10 lessons completed by Friday, November 9. I will be running a report from October 15 to November 9 to collect this data. This requirement will be recorded in PowerSchools. We have had many opportunities to work on DreamBox at school, and most students have well over 10 lessons completed. If your student does not have at least 10 by now, he or she needs to work on this at home as homework.

     

    DreamBox Learning!

    Students in 7th grade math should be logging into DreamBox Learning for 20 minutes two times a week. The expected number of lessons completed outside of class should be at least four a week. DreamBox Learning Math is "an interactive, adaptive, self-paced program that provides engaging activities for students to learn and practice skills in mathematics." 

    Progress in the software will be monitored weekly and students will earn homework points for reaching the expected number of minutes and lessons completed. 

    To log into DreamBox from home:

    1. Go to the Deer Valley Unified District Portal

    www.portal.dvusd.org

    2. Students need to log into the portal then click the "more" button on the lower left side of the screen.

    3. Clicking more will display the menu of applications available to the students in alphabetical order. Find the DreamBox link box and click it! 

    4. This will automatically launch the software!

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at mary.augustinovich@dvusd.org
