We are just  half way through the school year! Again, my name is Tiffany Comer-Hull. This is my 17th year teaching at Griffin. This year, I’m teaching two 7th grade math classes,  and two co-taught math classes with my perspective co-teacher, Mr. Lohuis. Also, feel free to refer to his Blog along with the 7th grade math team blog, as they will also contain the information in regards to the classes I teach. Any further information that you can provide that can help aid me in better understanding your child and their needs is greatly appreciated. You can leave me a message at 678-842-6917 to which I will respond to as soon as possible.

Thank you so much for allowing your child to attend Griffin Middle School and I look forward to working with you and your child this school year.

Lessons Plans 1/14/19 thru 1/18/19:

This week in my class we will focus on  the following topics: We will continue  Unit 3 (Ratios and Proportional  Reasoning). Monday we will take a quiz on ratios, rates, unit rates and proportions. Tuesday we will take 2 Unit 3 mini touchstones. Wednesday we will take a mid Unit 3 summative. Thursday and Friday we will work on proportional relationships involving similar figures and finding the percent of a number.  We will continue to review, for unit 3, identifying, setting up and solving ratios, rates, unit rates,  creating and identify equivalent fractions, solving complex fractions and converting unit rates, setting up and solving proportions that also include word problems, finding the rate of change in tables and graphs and finding the constant of proportionality. We will also continue to review identifying integers on a number line; computing absolute value; describing integer situations; along with adding , subtracting, multiplying and dividing integers; ordering fractions on a number  line; computing fractions (+,-,x,/); naming types of decimals; converting fractions, decimals, percents and comparing and ordering rational numbers, all from the topics we have covered in Unit 1. We will also continue to review  order of operations, exponents,  properties of operations, the distributive property, evaluate/solve algebraic expressions using substitution, combining like terms, adding and subtracting linear expressions and one and two step equations with graphing and one and two step inequalities with graphing with word problems and verbal expressions, all from which we have covered in Unit 2.
