Thank you for sharing your mathematicians with me! We have had an exciting week exploring growth mindset as well as our own excitement and anxiety about starting a new math class. Next week, we will begin academics with a review of foundational topics that are often forgotten over the summer. Students will typically have an assignment every night, with time in class to get started. There will be two assessments in the next two weeks:
9/14: Chapter 1 sections 1-4
9/21: Chapter 1 sections 5, 6, 9, and 10
As the year goes on, some students may find this is the first class where they struggle mathematically, which can be extremely frustrating. Please feel free to reach out at anytime to communicate questions, comments, or concerns. In addition, you are you child’s first teacher which means you know how they think, communicate, and respond to success and failure. If there are any techniques a previous teacher has utilized that were especially helpful for you child, please let me know. I am available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00pm-3:30pm for math tutoring.
Thank you for coming alongside me to best support your child, I look forward to working with you!
