School Notes 4/19/24


I teach a variety of math courses spanning life and occupational math to algebra. In my Occupational Math Class, we just got done doing a lot with handling and calculating money and now we are reviewing budgeting skills. A couple of my classes have just finished some unit testing. One of the classes took a unit test on Measuring Angles and in another class, we took a unit test on Linear Equations and Inequalities. All the while also supplementing individual needs of each student with concepts and standards that NWEA MAP testing scores and data say the student are ready to learn.

Eighth-grade students have had the opportunity to take Personal Finance as an exploratory class this year. Students are learning about comparison shopping, how to create a budget, how to calculate sales tax and tips when going out to eat, and how to find a discount when using a coupon. Upcoming topics this quarter include learning to write checks and how to balance a checking account, learning about credit scores and how to obtain a loan, and the difference between debit and credit cards.

Students have the opportunity to do some hands-on activities and work with partners and small groups while they learn about money.
