Your Math Teacher


I want to welcome you to 6th grade.  My name is Mr. Parris.  This is my 25 th year here at Lanier Middle School.  I grew up in this area.  I lived in Flowery Branch and went to Buford City Schools.

I attended college at Gainseville State College, Mercer University of Atlanta, and North Georgia College.  My degree is in Middle School Education in the concentrations of math and science.

I am married with 3 kids.  My wife and I have 2 boys and a girl.

It is an honor to be a part of your childs educational growth.  I want you to know that if you have any concerns this year please let me know.  It takes all of us working together to help your child reach their potential.

  5. Mr. Parris, this is stephanie and i was wondering why we put a 2 on the numder, a example would be if you have to find the area of a parallelogram and the ares was 77m then why would you add the 2 for it to be 77m2 at the top.

    • mathparris says:

      Stephanie, when you find area of a polygon you are trying to find how many
      square units will cover that polygon, so we put the exponent two with our
      unit of measurement. So in the example you gave me the answer will be 77
      square meters instead of 77 meters.
