I have added links to the other 8th grade teachers' blogs. They are listed at the bottom of the page.

Test Grades

The test grades are posted in PowerSchool under the 2nd quarter. I handed back the tests today and the students were able to ask questions. I do keep the tests, so your child will not be able to show it to you. If you would like to go over their test, please feel free to contact me and we can set up a time for you to come in.
I was very pleased with the scores for our first big test. We are now moving into a book called Samples and Populations. With the exception of 5th hour, I handed the new books out to all the students today.

REMINDER: There is no school on Thursday and Friday. Wamego Middle School will have parent-teacher-student conferences from 8am to 5pm with a lunch break from 12 - 12:45. If you came to conferences in September you do not need to attend again unless you need to speak to us.

Have a great week!

Unit Test Information

After having a substitute for 3 days last week I decided to move our Moving Straight Ahead Unit Test to Wednesday, October 13th. This will give us more time in class for review. The study guide handed out last Tuesday will be due the day of the test and is 10% of the test grade. The students can use the study guide, their notes, and their books on the test. There are no corrections on unit tests.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Week of October 4th

I will be attending the NCTM Regional Conference in Denver the rest of this week. Mr. Blackburn will be my substitute. He has math experience and will go through 4.2 and 4.3 with the students.

The students have been given a study guide for our Unit Test on October 12th. They will have time to work in class on Friday on the study guide. On Monday when I return we will go over the study guide and any questions they have about the book Moving Straight Ahead. The study guide needs to be turned in on Tuesday with the Unit Test and will be 10% of the overall test grade.

If your son/daughter is struggling with solving equations I posted an answer key to help them practice. It is called Math Equations Key and is listed under the Math Homework section at the top of this page.
