Welcome to our classroom!
My name is Mr. Willis, and I teach both 6th grade standard and 7th grade honors math here at Riverdale Middle School. I’ve had an opportunity to get to know many of my students, and am looking forward to getting to know everyone as we move into the school year. We’ve got some great kids here at RMS, and I’ve been enjoying my time working with all of them.
Our class mission is to create and be a part of a class where we can enjoy learning, working as part of a team, and exceeding our own expectations. I’m committed to creating a class environment where we can all feel safe and respected, and toward this aim we’ll be working accountable talk into our time together as we move forward this year. This approach helps us to be a more effective team, more engaged learners and critical thinkers, and develops healthy and positive communication habits.
Week of 02/25 through 03/02:
We’ll be starting this week with the online Math Interim 2 LEAP360 assessments. This assessment typically lasts an entire class session, and as the name suggests it helps us to assess the students’ strengths and weaknesses with the material we’ve covered so far in the semester. Once we’ve completed these, we’ll be moving into our new unit: Geometry! We’ll begin with classifying angles, and complementary/supplementary angles.
I’ve included a study packet, as well as some practice worksheets that you are welcome to print and use as additional study material.
