Math 7: August 31-September 4

This week we will continue to learn about integer operations, specifically subtracting with integers. Last week we discovered that subtracting an integer is the same as adding it’s opposite, and this lead us to the subtracting integers formula which is:

                                       ab = a + (the opposite of b)

During the first few weeks of school we have slowly developed our conceptual understanding of integers and in the next few weeks we will learn multiplication and division of integers and we will apply these concepts to solving problems with integers.

Welcome to Grade 7 Math!

I am happy to welcome you to our class!

It has been a fantastic start to the new year, and I look forward to seeing what we will accomplish this year as a community of learners. It is important to always remember that individual success is important but our true measure of success is how much we accomplish as a group. Our class motto helps us stay focused on our responsibility to others:

I am responsible for my own learning and I am responsible for the learning of every student in this class.
