Mrs. Baker’s Math Class

A virtual classroom has been set up on Teams for the students in my math groups. An email invitation has been sent to the students in my math groups. Using the email link, another numeracy option for Home Learning Opportunities for my adapted math class can be found as well as other math activities. These Home Learning Opportunities are also shared below.

I can be contacted by email at cbaker@sd83.bc.ca or in Microsoft Teams.
