Welcome to Ms. Apruzzese's 8th Grade Math Class!
I am so excited to be able to share your last and final year at Memorial School with you. I can promise you we will have fun in Math this year filled with a lot of laughs. This year our Pre-Algebra classes will be using Ready Math. This is a great program which gets the students talking about Math and thinking outside the box. Our Algebra class will be using Big Ideas. This is a rigorous program which will provide many challenges for our students. I am excited to work with both programs while supplementing with different materials as needed.
For both Pre-Algebra and Algebra, homework will consist of 2-3 IXL sections per week. Homework will be assigned on Monday and will be checked by class time on Friday. All assignments will be posted on our Google Classroom page. Student's homework grade will be determined by the average of the assigned sections.
About Ms. A
I am so excited to work with each and every one of you this year. The 2019-2020 school year will be my eighth year at Memorial School and I have loved every minute. I have always taught 8th grade Math as it is my passion. I earned my Bachelors degree from Monmouth University in 2012 and my Masters from Montclair University in Educational Leadership in 2020. This year, I also serve as your 8th grade co-advisor as well as the co-advisor for NJHS. Aside from teaching, I am also a mom to a very energetic five-year-old. I am sure you will meet him at some point this year! Together we love being at the beach, running around outside, and searching Youtube cheats for all his video games I can not figure out.
