Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!
It is my pleasure to introduce myself to you. My name is Ms. Powell, and I will be teaching eighth grade math this year. This is my 13th years teaching and my first year at Parkside!
Unit 9: 3D Shapes
HOMEWORK: Due Friday April 21, 2017
Volume of cubes, prisms, and pyramids (8-T.7)
Surface area of cubes, prisms, and pyramids (8-T.8)
Unit 9 Post Test - 4/27/17
Homework: Homework will be assigned every Monday and it is due on Friday each week it is collected for feedback purposes. Practice is the key component to be successful in this class! Without practice, it is difficult to be succeed on tests.
Quizzes: There will be a scheduled quiz each Friday. This is an important part of test preparation, so students can see how they fare on an assessment without any help. These will be shorter, but similar in format to unit tests.
Unit Tests: Unit tests will cover the Virginia state standards. EACH LEARNING TARGET FROM THE STANDARDS IS ENTERED INTO THE GRADEBOOK SEPARATELY. One unit test could be eight grades! This way, I can evaluate the students’ success on specific tasks and skills.
