**Math 7A and 7B**

Students' Unit Exam for Integers has been graded and reported on PowerSchool. We have begun Unit 3A: Operations with Decimals. I mentioned this in last week's update but one thing that may be different in math for Grade 7 is that students will not be using calculators in class until after February. Unit 3A is heavily focused on building numeracy skills. Numeracy is the ability to perform mathematical operations (adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying, converting fractions/percents, decimals, etc.) without the use of technology (calculator). If students are experiencing any difficulties during the next unit they are encouraged to come in for extra help during lunch time or sign up for a numeracy flex block (flex blocks are every day 3).

Students should expect a quiz sometime near the end of next week that will cover operations with decimals (Thursday or Friday). And they should also expect an assignment in the coming weeks.

Otherwise, students are strongly encouraged to complete daily assigned work - my blog (https://welzblogeljhs.blogspot.com/) contains what is assigned each day. Typically enough class time is given for students to complete their assigned work; however, if students do not complete their work it should be done for homework. Math is a skill and in order to succeed students need consistent and constant practice.
