# Seventh Grade

WELCOME TO MIDDLE SCHOOL MATH AND SCIENCE!!!

*The math textbook can be viewed online (at bigideasmath.com) so there is no need to carry the book home every day. There is an online science component (at my.amplify.com) for the new science program.

*Make sure your textbook is covered. This helps keep the book in good condition for all year.

*Remember to check gradelink weekly for graded assignments and upcoming assignments.
