Ms. Swain's Class


Mathematics in its pure state is the poetry of logic

"Do not worry about your difficulities in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater." ~ Albert Einstein



(Ms. Swain steps up to the mic, taps) WELCOME!!!! There is not a doubt in my mind that we are going to have a great year. Why you ask, because together you and I (yep you) are going to work hard, push each other, check-in with each other to make sure that we are hanging in there, and we are going to conquer the world! To big? Okay maybe we can just conquer 7th grade math! While I know that we would rather be back in the classroom, that is just not in the cards - yet; so together we will navigate virtual learning, and we will have PATIENCE and GRACE with classmates and each other. If you want to take a look around, below you will find important information, resources, and your class syllabus. Until then, I look forward to meeting you! 

My Wednesday office hours will be held using the banner link in schoology from 9:45am - 10:45am

If you are unable to "attend" offiec hours, you can email me any time and I will within 24 hours, unless I am out of class.

See the below link Titled "Ms. Swain's Virtual Classroom" for important information!
