The Helena Public Schools adopted the Core Focus on Mathematics textbook series at the end of last school year.
Students in 7th grade math periods 4, 6 and 7 will complete three units this year, preparing them for 8th grade math. Each unit is its own textbook; the units include Rational Numbers and Equations, Proportions and Probability, and Shapes and Angles.
Students in 7th grade math periods 1 and 2 will complete four units this year, preparing them for Algebra 1 in 8th grade. In addition to the three 7th grade units, these students will complete a fourth unit on Geometry.
Books will be assigned to students one unit at a time. At the end of a unit, the unit book will be collected, and the book for the next unit will be assigned. The book MUST be covered using a brown paper bag and duct tape. Ideally, the book cover can be removed from one book and put onto the next book at the end of each unit. There is a link on my webpage to a YouTube video with directions for creating a duct tape book cover.
The textbook is also available ONLINE. The link to the website is on my webpage, as well as the username and password. The entire textbook, as well as videos of each lesson, Power Point slide shows of each lesson, extra practice worksheets, and links to IXL practice are also available through the online text.
