Algebraic Announcements

At the conclusion of the Winter Trimester, Math 7 students thanked their Winter teaching assistant, Aaron H. '25, with juice, donuts and a homemade card before school. Aaron was an invaluable addition to the classes, providing teaching support, encouragement, and humor every time.
Jenn C.'s Math 7 class also created their own games to practice skills with algebraic expressions. Each group had a different type of game to create (dice, cards, board game, jeopardy, or bingo) and then the students ran the games during the week of February 27.
