Welcome to our first full week of school! Here is what we are doing this week in my middle school math classes:

7th Grade Prealgebra (7th and 8th grade standards): We are reviewing integer computation. After assessing the students last week, the class decided that some review was definitely needed. The amount of review will depend on the students. We will also look at other integer skills, such as comparing, ordering, and absolute value.

Algebra: We will begin the week with simplifying non-perfect radicals. We will classify numbers into sets within the real number system. Students will also explain why the sum or product of a combination of rational or irrational numbers is rational or irrational.
