Welcome to Math 7 and Math 8My name is Mr. Collins and I am extremely excited to be working with each of you this school year! This course will require you to look at math in ways that you may not have looked at it before. The aim of this course is for students to be able to answer, "Why does math matter?" and "Where can I use math in my real life?" by the end of the year. Throughout the year we will unpack math and discover that it is much more than formulas and procedures. Instead, math is an immensely powerful problem solving tool that will help shape your view of the world around you!
