8TH GRADE MATH

Students often ask themselves and their teachers, “When am I going to use this?” In Mr. Argawal’s  8th-grade math class, they are finding the answer! They are working on becoming financial literate, and figuring out problems focused on the use/misuse of credit cards, and learning the key vocabulary terms for home purchases, such as mortgage, FHA, conventional loans, PMI Credit Scores, and how to analyze options available in the financial world. The students learn to solve the problem of the week, followed by a little research paper and a discussion of the economic topic. Mr. Argawal says he is amused when he sees  students amazed when they realize that just by making a little extra monthly payment to a mortgage company could save them years and thousands of dollars.

SAS Math 7

CalculatorPariColor.png     In SAS Math 7, students are learning Common Core Standards of mathematical practices:
          1) make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, 
          2) construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
          3) model with mathematics.

     Students practice restating a problem, making a model, showing their work, writing the answer in a complete sentence, reflecting on the strategy used, and explaining why their answer makes sense.  In the future, students will be able to apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event, determine the quantities needed to be purchased to satisfy certain requirements for the given situation, as well as compare and determine the best choices for the purchase.
