Welcome to Mrs. Drauch's Math Space.
Parents, please check powerschool weekly to make sure your child is completing and turning in assignments. As we move into fourth quarter we continue to grow in our math knowledge, and are especially working on close and critical reading strategies in order to understand and solve problems. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions. Final exams for 8th grade will be June 5th. Sixth grade will have one more assessment on order of operation. They will continue to prepare for 7th grade math expectations. Seventh grade will be assessed on data analysis and solving equations. They will finish the year learning about geometry.
"PowerTeaching empowers students to work together to improve their understanding of mathematics concepts, encourages them to take ownership of their learning during multiple opportunities for practice and evaluation. With over 25 years of reasearch, PowerTeaching has been demonstrated to increase academic success by establishing a student-centered classroom through the use of compelling concept presentations, assessments for learning, and student learning teams."
I will be offering math tutoring every Monday from 2:04 to 3:00. I have also posted a guide for the side on each grade level page. The guide gives parents ideas on using the math in their day to day lives and gives specific links for videos students can view to help them better understand the math. Students can sign up for a Khan Academy account and practice problems on-line that are directly related to what is being done in class.
