• Dear Parents and Scholars,

    My name is Mrs. Buell. This is my 6th year as a Buffalo Teacher and 3rd year at Frank A. Sedita Academy, Community School #30. I LOVE being a Dragon. I am particularly interested in how we can apply math to the real world such as in Physics and Statistics. I am very excited about this school year and teaching my Dragons!

    This year we will be working to prepare for success on the New York State Math Exam as well as prepare for the challenges and rigor of high school mathematics. We will follow the Common Core Math Curriculum, in which there is an emphasis on problem solving and critical thinking. There will also be a focus on reading and writing in Math. In this course, the work shown to achieve the solution is just as important as the solution itself.  Here are the Modules we will study:

    7th Grade:

    Module 1: Ratios and Proportional Relationships

    Module 2: Rational Numbers

    Module 3: Expressions and Equations

    Module 4: Percent and Proportional Relationships

    Module 5: Statistics and Probability

    Module 6: Geometry

    8th Grade:

    Module 1: Integer Exponents and Scientific Notation

    Module 2: The Concept of Congruence

    Module 3: Similarity

    Module 4: Linear Equations

    Module 5: Examples of Functions from Geometry

    Module 6: Linear Functions

    Module 7: Introduction to Irrational Numbers using Geometry
