Dr. Busch

Hello My Name Is

Dr. Joyce Busch I teach Math 6, Math 7 and Pre-algebra in the Middle School. I'm also a certified ESOL teacher and taught in Manassas City prior to joining PWCS.

PWCS Math Pacing Guides

Welcome back from Spring Break!! I will be sending out emails on Monday the 13th explaining how to improve your Math grade. Please watch your PWCS e-mails for more information. Also I recommend that you take a look at your grades in StudentVue. We'll need that information, too!

## Unit Learning Objectives

 Math 6 (Unit 6) 6.7  The student will derive π (pi); solve problems, including practical problems, involving circumference and area of a circle; and solve problems, including practical problems, involving area and perimeter of triangles and rectangles. 6.8 The student will identify the components of the coordinate plane; and identify the coordinates of a point and graph ordered pairs in a coordinate plane. 6.9  The student will determine congruence of segments, angles, and polygons. Math 7 (Unit 6) 7.6  The student will compare and contrast quadrilaterals based on their properties; and determine unknown side lengths or angle measures of quadrilaterals. 7.7 The student will apply translations and reflections of right triangles or rectangles in the coordinate plane. Pre-algebra (Unit 7) 8.15 The student will determine whether a given relation is a function; and determine the domain and range of a function.  8.16 The student will recognize and describe the graph of a linear function with a slope that is positive, negative, or zero; specifically, the student will identify the slope and y-intercept of a linear function, given a table of values, a graph, or an equation in y = mx + b form; determine the independent and dependent variable, given a practical situation modeled by a linear function; graph a linear function given the equation in y = mx + b form; and make connections between and among representations of a linear function using verbal descriptions, tables, equations, and graphs.
