Plan and Expectations for Distance Learning
Hello 7th/8th grade students and families,
As we are now learning from home, here is a tentative plan for daily learning.

We will move into reviewing math content and fluency. Each student has access through their chromebook.

All of your work will be posted daily in Google Classroom. You will have a four items posted in Google Classroom to complete:

1. Warm Up  thatquiz

2. Math Review Video

3. Google Form  8 math questions

4. Moby Max  one lesson to complete

Assigned work should be “turned in” each day, as I will check for completion. Work will be assessed daily. You should try to complete ALL 4 items posted.

I will continue to communicate with you through Google Classroom or email as work progresses.
My email is kgallo@cstdnj.org and is always accessible.
Middle School Math
Middle school is one of the best times to begin exploring mathematics: this subject for many middle school kids is scary. Trying to get rid of this fear of middle school math from the students can be a tough job for the teachers. Middle school math contains topics such as: fractions, geometry, formulas, conversions and general math. Mathematics at middle school level should teach students to intelligently logic out the formulas and apply math in their daily life.
Teaching math at middle school level can be very challenging. Teaching concepts, which are applicable in real life, is a tough job, but with the collection of resources and questions to practice, the fear of math in students can be tackled. Learning mathematics at any level can be fun provided proper concepts are embedded in the minds of those who teach and in those who study them.
