    I will be updating Infinite Campus weekly with your credit/no-credit marks. If something is not working through the Google Classroom, just let me know - we are learning all of this technology along with you. If you are struggling with a concept - feel free to access resources you have available - it could be an email to me, searching for a video on-line that explains the concept in a different way or asking someone at home if they can explain it to you. The options are endless - but the bottom line is that I am here for you each day and will respond to your questions as soon as possible. I miss seeing all of you! :)

     

    Thanks,

    Mrs. Hartwell

     

    Week of April 1

    HI Everyone,

    As you can see by Mrs. Kreuzer's email, we will be changing the way that we are conducting our Distance Learning. The expectation is that you will have about 20-25 minutes of work per class per day. I have created Google Classrooms, and most of my students have joined them already. If you have not joined, please check your KP email and accept the invitation. 


    My plan is to post all of the assignments at the beginning of each week. I know that some people work at their own pace or are sharing devices. For that reason, I will have all assignments for the week due by Saturday, but there will be work posted for each day. I know that this Distance Learning is new for everyone (including me!) so I can be flexible, but please be sure to communicate with me if you are having trouble meeting the deadlines.


    This week, we will be working on the Order of Operations. On Wednesday, students will be watching a video to refresh their memory and then completing a matching activity. On Thursday, students will be completing two mazes by following the Order of Operations. On Friday, students will be finding and recommending a video to me about the Order of Operations. They will fill out a form letting me know which video they recommend, summarizing the video, and letting me know why they chose that one. I can even use these videos to add to the ones I show in class, and you know how much I love a music video to reinforce the math concepts that we are working on! Don't forget to share the assignments when you are done. If you can not complete the activities on the computer, no problem! You can print and scan back to me, you can complete the work on a separate sheet of paper and take a picture and send it back to me. I am here to help, so please let me know what you need!


    I am checking email regularly, but I am available for an office hour daily from 9:30 to 10:30. Next week, I may plan to do a Zoom with each class simply to check in. I want to see my students and say Hello! and complete a math demonstration. Students, join me if you can! I know it may be challenging with the sharing of devices, but I would love to see you. (More information about dates and times will follow next week!) Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.


    I hope all are healthy and safe!

    Thanks,
    Mrs. Hartwell

     

    Math During School Closure

    Hello Students and Parents!

    I hope that you are all safe and healthy during this unprecedented time. It can be helpful to keep some sort of a "normal" schedule while school is not in session. I wanted to give you a list of recommended math topics and some websites to keep your math skills up-to-date!  Watching a video from Khan Academy and doing some practice problems every ‘school’ day is a great way to keep your math skills sharp.  You might choose to use Catch-Up Math to see where you might need some extra practice. See below for more information.

    CatchUp Math
    This program has the student take a pretest to assess their areas of strength and weakness. The results of the assessment allows the program to adapt the review to each individual student's needs. 

    www.catchupmath.com
    Username:  KPMS861
    Password:  quizme

    Students sign in from here.


    Khan Academy: 
    This program has video examples and explanations. Students can practice with additional problems. Suggested topics can be found below by grade and level.  

    https://www.khanacademy.org/math

    Grade 7 Level 1 and Level 2:
    Negative Numbers: Addition and Subtraction (all topics)
    Negative Numbers: Multiplication and Division (all topics)
    Fractions, decimals & percentages (all topics)
    Rates and proportional relationships (all topics)
    Expressions, equations & inequalities (all topics)


    Grade 7 Extended:
    Negative Numbers: Addition and Subtraction (all topics)
    Negative Numbers: Multiplication and Division (all topics)
    Fractions, decimals & percentages (all topics)
    Rates and proportional relationships (all topics)
    Expressions, equations & inequalities (all topics)
    Statistics and probability (all topics)

     

    The school is recommending that students should work on each subject for about 30 minutes a day about three times a week.  You can break it up however you would like. Maybe spend a half hour one day on each math and science and then a half hour the next day on each history and ELA. Find what works best for you and your family.

     

    Remember that there are many ways to practice math. For example, at my house, we have been doing a lot of baking and my boys have been in charge of reading the recipes and measuring the ingredients. We have also been playing a lot of board games like Yahtzee, Rummikub, Quirkle and other cards games too. Feel free to have a little fun with it. 

     

    In addition, I have also updated my website with even more math resources. https://www.kingphilip.org/Domain/827 

    Click on Helpful Resources and then Great Math Websites. There you can find my recommendations for websites that contain worksheets, flashcards, and math games. My suggestion would be to focus on topics such as Equations, Integers, Fractions, Decimals, or Percents. 

     

    While I am checking email regularly, I will have a daily office hour of 9:30-10:30 AM where I will be available to offer support with math concepts, answer questions, etc. I know that some of you may not have access to a computer or may not have time to look into any of these options.  These are suggested activities to keep you sharp and review important concepts. Please do what is best for you and your family.


    Please reach out if I can support you in additional ways. 

    Thank you,

    Whitney Hartwell (hartwellw@kingphilip.org)
