Mrs. Fendall

Welcome to Pre-Algebra on Team Lincoln. I'm looking forward to the start of a new school year and a fresh group of smiling faces!  I’m excited to have the opportunity to work with you this year as I hope to share my enthusiasm for math with you through hands-on activities, group work, manipulatives, and discussions.  The focus is to build on students’ concrete reasoning experiences by developing deep mathematical understanding required for success in abstract learning experiences and in solving real-life problems. Let's have a great year in math!

Pre-Algebra Course Description

The eighth-grade standards contain both content that reviews or extends concepts and skills learned in previous grades and new content that prepares students for more abstract concepts in algebra and geometry.  Students will gain proficiency in computation with rational numbers and will use proportions to solve a variety of problems.  New concepts include solving two-step equations and inequalities, graphing linear equations, visualizing three-dimensional shapes represented in two-dimensional drawings, applying transformations to geometric shapes in the coordinate plane, and using matrices to organize and interpret data.  Students will verify and apply Pythagorean Theorem and represent relations and functions using tables, graphs, and rules.

Math 7 BOOST Course Description

The purpose of BOOST Math is for students to further master the mathematical skills being taught in class as well as gain a better understanding of math concepts students might have struggled with in the past and/or stretch the mind of those students who are ready for advanced level learning. This will be done in various ways including project based learning, small group remediation, digital presentations and more with an emphasis on real-world application. Students will complete a biweekly exit slips and reflection forms which will be used to tailor individual instruction.
