MS Math - Mr. Goffner

Hello and welcome to 7th Grade Math. My name is Mr. Goffner, and I am very passionate about helping my students to achieve their goals in math, including achieving the highest possible score on the state exam and achieving the highest possible score on the SHSAT so that they may get into the high school that they dream of. Myself being a graduate of Bronx High School of Science, I know what it takes for success on the entry exam. I received a B.S. from The George Washington University and an M.S.Ed. from CUNY-Queens College. I am currently in my third year of teaching at OWNCS and had four years of teaching experience prior to joining the OWNCS family. I am having an excellent time and will stop at nothing to make a positive impact on the school and on the community.

Units for the 7th Grade Mathematics curriculum include: Operations and properties, Algebraic thinking, Integers, Rational numbers, Decimal operations and applications, Fraction operations and applications, Ratios and proportions, Proportions in geometry, Graphs of linear equations, Fractions and percents, Applying percents, Organizing and displaying data, Lines and angles, Congruent figures, Perimeter and area, Volume and surface area, Introduction to probability, Applications and probability, Multi-step equations, and Inequalities.

The current unit we are working on is Organizing and displaying data. Topics for this unit include: Finding measures of central tendency, Creating box-and-whisker plots, and Finding bias in population samples.

The ATL's are self-management and organizational skills.

Together we can make this a wonderful school year.

My top 3 tips for success in math are: 1) Keep reviewing previous topics. Everything builds on a previous topic, so make sure the previous topics are mastered. 2) Practice, practice, practice. Like anything else in life, the more time you put into it, the more you get out of it. 3) Believe in... Read More...
