Seventh Grade Math

Welcome Back

Welcome to the beginning of a new school year at Lyndon B. Johnson Middle School.  You will be taking on new responsibilities as a learner this year.  A few of your goals will be to expand your mathematical knowledge, improve your application skills, and advance your  organizational techniques. Throughout this endeavor,  I will be here to keep you focused and help you succeed.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Tammy Carvin

Math After School Program

Dear Families,

I am fortunate to be able to work with MidSchoolMath, a New Mexico-based company whose sole focus is building engaging story-based math curriculum for middle school students. Within that curriculum there are two online games, Ko’s Journey and EMPIRES, which students will use during the after school program.

Ko’s Journey is a story-based math game, focused on Grade 6, Proportional Relationships. Set in ancient Peru, it is the story of Ko, a girl going through a rite of passage guided along by her grandfather. As Ko comes upon challenges during this rite of passage, students must help her overcome them.

EMPIRES is also a story-based math game, focused on many of the core concepts of Grade 7 math. Set in Ancient Mesopotamia during the Neolothic Era, at the brink of the agricultural revolution and the beginning of trade economies, EMPIRES invites students into an epic civilization story, with characters, a rich plot and individual empires run by each student Provident. Students manage their empire, tallying assets, investing and distributing resources as they choose across a vast array of options. As each activity unfolds, opportunities for learning and practicing math appear, within the context of the game.

In addition to the games, MidSchoolMath also has an adaptive tool called Test Trainer, which students can use to get exposure to many math items at their ability level.  There are also many 3-Act math tasks, which I may also use with students from time to time. My hope is that this program will complement our existing math textbooks and curriculum and will both solidify and extend students’ math knowledge.

The after school program will run from September 26th through April 5th   on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:10-4:10.  The cost of the program is $29 per student due by September 12th, payable by cash. Space is limited so acceptance in the program will be on a first come basis.

We are very excited to bring the MidSchoolMath curriculum to our after school program and to be able to provide our students with this opportunity. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

 

Tammy Carvin                                                           Michael Bachicha
