7th Grade Math

Emily Norppa

Welcome to 7th Grade Math!

Overview

This year of mathematics will give students a strong foundation in algebra while also preparing them for future study of geometry, probability and data analysis. Homework will include a wide variety of exercises ranging from basic exercises that help students develop and practice skills to challenging exercises that involve logical reasoning and problem solving.

This Week in 7th Grade Math

This week, the 7th graders are working on algebraic equations. They will have a test next week Wednesday.

Syllabus

Google Classroom

I use Google Classroom (click here for link) as my main way to communicate with students during the school year. I post slides from class, announcements, and any homework assignments that they can turn in electronically. As a parent or guardian, you can also sign up to receive updates about what I post on Google Classroom. If you would like to sign up for this information, please email me (enorppa@gracesystem.org) with the subject “Google Classroom” and let me know your child’s name, as well as which email(s) you want to use to receive notifications.

Math Help Times

If I an unable to adequately address a student’s questions during class, or if a student has additional questions about the material, I strongly encourage those students to come see me for extra help. I am currently teaching a class during the normal study hall time. However, I am available to help students with math at the following times:

  • Before school (7:30-7:50)
  • During recess (11:53 – 12:10)
  • After school (3:00 – at least 3:30) (This Wednesday I can only meet until 3:15 because of a doctor’s appointment)

Learning Links

Below are links I have frequently used with students. They provide quality supplementary help with math concepts.

Virtual Nerd – Short video explanations with examples.

Khan Academy – Videos, examples, and practice problems to help students become proficient in math (and a number of other subjects as well). Middle school students have Khan Academy accounts, which they made at the beginning of the year under Ms. Norppa’s supervision, using their school Google accounts. They have Ms. Norppa listed as a coach, so she is aware of their time spent on Khan Academy, as well as their progress on different topics.

Math Is Fun – Down-to-Earth textual explanations of math concepts.
