7th Grade Math

Mrs. PowersHello!  My name is Stacie Powers and I am the 7th Grade Math Teacher here at CCA.

While my background didn't begin in math, I have always loved numbers and solving problems.  I bring to the classroom a unique perspective on how math and numbers play into our daily lives.  My career began in the corporate business world, working with businesses to build their companies, launch new divisions and provide a full spectrum of marketing channels for their sales teams to venture into.  With each new adventure, that I helped drive, we always utilized math.  Yes, I am one person who can truly say that I have used my algebra, calculus and geometry classes beyond the classroom!

I am married to one amazing gentleman and we have three amazing children (yes, I might be a little biased).  As my time with my family brought me home from the corporate world - I began to spend time in my children's classrooms, which soon lead me to substitute teaching.  Spending time in the classroom has become my passion!  I love working along side the students and seeing them succeed!  I have a calling to work with each student, to understand what drives them, and to see how I can help them become more!

This year we will be focusing on some pretty challenging math tasks - but nothing our students cannot handle.  I believe in the Power of "Yet"...  we may not have it today, not yet, but we will keep trying and we will work to succeed!Math Teachers

Powers - On Point

March 2021


Top of the morn’n to you!  As an honorary Irishman I just love March, the fun, the random Irish accent, the longer days and a renewed sense of accomplishment.  I see the students responding the same.


This month we are moving into our statistics and probability units. These are fun units, lots of hands-on activities! Be prepared for random spinners and surveys to be coming your way.  


Our first chapter in this unit is chapter B- probability. We will move through this unit pretty quickly and end the chapter with a project, rather than a quiz or test.


We will end the month with the statistics chapter - the students will be asked to conduct some survey information from their family and peers.  I find when they use data that have helped obtain, this subject is much more appealing :)


I would like to keep the students from having too much stress about homework at home, please have your students work to complete any problems, not completed in class, during the evenings.  If this is taking them more than 20 to 30 minutes, please reach out to discuss this with me, so that we can make arrangements suitable for your student.


Math Intervention

These students are working on their individual growth and working towards building their math knowledge.  During remote learning - students are to join our google meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays, in place of the daily elective. Students can access the google meets from our google classroom.  During our time together I will be checking in on their math class work and having them log into Moby Max to keep practicing their skill sets.


Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns.


Thank you!

Mrs. Powers
