Miss Gretchen Gensemer



This is my third year teaching at DMMS, but my 20th year overall.  I am currently teaching Math 7/8 and Algebra I.

I previously taught 8th grade math and Algebra I in Accomack County, which is on the Eastern Shore.  I have also taught 6th grade math in North Carolina as well.

I look forward to working with you and your child this year.  If you have any questions, please contact me.

    Curriculum Map 2018-2019

    Announcement:  Students have brought home a textbook to use as a resource.  This will be returned at the end of the year.

     www.ck-12.org is a great resource to use at home... it brings together practice assignments, videos, interactives, and other resources on topics we will be studying.  Ask your child to show you what they have been working on with this site.

    Parents, please make sure your child is charging his or her chromebook nightly.  It is their responsiblility to come to class prepared, and that includes having a charged chromebook.

    Unit 6 Project:  Students will be researching one of two real-world situations -- a vacation or cell phone plans.  They will have to research various plans for their choice, and determine (by solving systems of equations) which option within their scenario is the better deal.  They will also have to create a final display of their data and reasons for their choice in vacation or cell plan.  They will start research today, January 10th.  Final product is due to me by 3:20 pm on Feb. 8th.
