Math Year 8

It's not that I am so smart; its just that I stay with problems longer.

TERM 1

Dear Parents and Students,

Ms. Nour, Ms. Irene and I welcome you to the 2018-2019 academic session. We are so glad to have you back after a well-deserved rest and hope you will continue to show dedication and hard work this academic year. We are looking forward to another wonderful year of learning.

The Year 8 students are following the Year 8 Cambridge Curriculum Mathematics focusing on a number of skills that are distributed through term 1, term 2 and term 3. Throughout term 1, students will be given many opportunities to demonstrate their understanding of the skills delivered. For more details about the grading structure of term 1, please open and download the assessment schedule below.

Success in this class is based on amongst other things, a student's attendance and understanding of the skills delivered. Students are encouraged to actively participate during class and follow up with homework at home. When confused, please make sure you ask questions during or after class as we all apply an open door policy.

Finally, kindly note that the best way to know what is happening in our math classes is to check our Year 8 Math google site which is updated on weekly basis and the google classroom. For further questions or if you would like to make an appointment with your son's/daughter's teacher, please contact the secondary school secretary to set a date.

Thank you and wish you the best luck,

Nour, Irene and Gloria
