# Maple: Math

Welcome to 7th Grade! Hi, I’m Ms. Tatoyian and I am very excited to announce that this will be my first year teaching! I am thrilled to be here at Woodbury and even more excited to be part of Team Maple. You are going to love it here!

I graduated from Southern New Hampshire University in May of 2019 after a very successful student teaching experience. I have always had a love for math, I enjoy being challenged, finding ways to problem solve, and thinking outside the box. I also love the energy that middle schoolers bring to the classroom! Outside of school I enjoy spending time outside in the warmer months, reading, exploring new places, and cuddling up with my dog Haley.

You may feel excited and anxious to start off the new school year. These feelings are normal for anyone. I’m looking forward to getting to know each of you and having a fun, successful year!

## Math Topics

Our instructional time in 7th grade will focus on four critical areas:

• Developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships
• Developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear relationships
• Solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two-and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume
• Drawing inferences about populations based on sample

Listed below are the units of study this year:

Unit 1:  Two-Dimensional Geometry

Unit 2:  Integers and Rational Numbers

Unit 3:  Understanding Similarity

Unit 4:  Ratios, Rates, Percents, and Proportions

Unit 5: Linear Relationships

Unit 6: Three-Dimensional Geometry

Unit 7:  Making Comparisons and Predictions

Unit 8:  Probability and Expected Value

## Math Class Expectations

Mistakes are proof that you are trying!

In order for everyone to have a successful school year there are a few expectations I wish to share:

• All ideas, opinions, and questions are important and will be respected.
• Students are expected to complete homework assignments in order to be prepared for class.
• Students are expected to show their work in order to receive full credit.
• Students will be expected to maintain a binder containing notes, class work, homework, quizzes, and tests.  This binder is a resource to help you be successful in math  (I will provide the binder and notebook).
• Students are expected to bring their math binder, pencils, eraser, and completed homework to class each day.
