Happy February 

February is the month of love.

The Bible tells how we as Christians should love.


1 Corinthians 16:14 

Let all that you do be done in love.



1 Peter 4:8

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins.



John 13:34-35 

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”





Here in Advanced Math we also have a love for learning.


What can be anticipated for each grade is as follows:

          Grade 8 = Polynomials and Quadratic functions

          Grade 7 = Systems – Linear

Grade 6 = Statistics

Grade 5 = Geometry – Surface Area and Volume  




 All four classes have been watching “the market” in amazement.

The GameStop – Reddit – Robinhood events over the last week has opened many discussions about how the market and short sales. I hope there has been some banter at home as well. Watch for more exercises revolving around these events.


Lastly as you are aware all Advanced Math students are registered and responsible for completing work through KhanAcademy and freckle when assigned.  These components will once again be part of the homework assignments. Please check the site and keep up with assignments. Assignments are now being graded on completeness. And as always NEVER spend more 40 minutes an evening on Advanced Math Homework.




February Challenge Questions
