Dear 7th Grade Math Parent or Guardian:

Tomorrow we will begin Chapter 4 Powers and Roots. In this chapter, your student will find powers of numbers and work with scientific notation. We will also be finding square roots and comparing real numbers.  Included in this letter are key vocabulary words you can do with your student. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at school.
