    Hello and welcome to College/Career Math.  We are in for a great year where we will try to make math as exciting and relevant to real life experiences as possible. 

     

    This year we will be focusing on the math needs of your child, so lessons may vary from student to student.  We will review throughout the year as basic math facts are needed to introduce new concepts.  Some topics we will be covering: earning money, buying food,shopping for clothes, managing a household, etc.  As the year progresses, we will use store flyers to compute grocery lists and compare prices.

     At home, please encourage your child to share his/her work/progress with you.  It will help the students to take pride in their work.
