  1. Hi Ms Zaher
    I really enjoyed your math class intro. Cole is my redhead 7th grader in your 8th grade pre algebra class. Since he was out of the normal cirriculum last year, I want to make sure he knows all the prerequisite concepts and solutions. He probably does but I should check.
    Can you email the list of math topics that will be covered, that were in your power point (oe the whole powerpoint)? And, is there anything you can send on the content of the prereq class for you? Syllabus, old final exam, etc
