• Dear Parents/Guardians,


    I am so excited to begin this school year as your student's 8th grade math teacher! We will be implementing the enVisions 2.0 Math Program and will be covering a wide variety of topics, including:

          -Real Numbers

          -Linear Equations


          -Bivariate Data

          -Systems of Equations

          -Congruence and Similarity

          -Pythagorean Theorem, Distance & Midpoints

          -Volume & Surface Area


    I have planned many fun and enriching activities that incorporate technology to keep your learner engaged.  My goal is to have students apply each concept to the real world so they develop an understanding of the material. 


    I will be in my classroom for extra help every Monday after school for any students that wish to attend.  They should let me know ahead of time if they would like to stay.


    Homework will be assigned almost every day as it is imperative in mathematics that students are practicing each skill.  There are many ways you can support your learner at home, including:

          -Checking assignments to see that they are completed with a clear answer

          -Asking students to explain how they solved a problem or to summarize their notes for you

          -Having students review their notes each night

          -Encouraging students to share with you what they learned in class and how it relates to their everyday life


    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email at [email protected] or by phone at (732) 556-2500.


    I look forward to working together this year to help your student reach their full potential! 



    Mrs. Lauren Dean
