Behavior Expectations:

Always treat everyone, including yourself, with RESPECT!

 

Daily Supplies:
  • Assignment Notebook
  • Student Companion Workbook
  • 1 inch Binder 
  • #2 Pencil and Grading Pen 
  • Calculator (TI-30 recommended)

Organization:

Organization is key to the study of mathematics.  Reviewing notes daily will help you remember the material that has been covered.  Studying from your notes, graded homework and quizzes before a test will improve your test scores.  All material related to the current unit should be kept in your binder.

Binders should be kept neat and “cleaned out” periodically.  It is suggested you reorganize your binder after each test or at the end of the trimester.  Be careful not to dispose of any graded work until after you have checked Power School to be sure credit has been given.  It may also be a good idea to store useful material to study for the FINAL EXAM in May!

 

Grades:

Grades are weighted as 20% Homework, 30% Classwork, and 50% Quizzes/Tests.

 

Homework:

Homework is generally assigned every class and will be due the following class.  Homework should take on average 30 minutes (20 minutes of problems, 10 minutes of review) and should be completed neatly, in pencil, with all work shown on loose-leaf paper.  Homework is generally accepted as a completion grade.  Late work will be accepted up to four (4) school days after the due date for partial credit.

 

Classwork/Notes:

Notes should be taken during class when new material is introduced; students are expected to record all examples within their notes and student companion workbooks.

 

Quizzes:

Students are assessed throughout each unit in the form of quizzes.  Tentative quiz dates are posted on the Trimester Curriculum Outline. 

 

Tests:

Assessments are given at the conclusion of each unit/chapter.  Students who earn a grade below 70% are strongly encouraged to retake the test.  Tests may be retaken within one week if the student has completed all homework assignments for the unit, and the TEST RETAKE FORM is completed with a parent signature.

 

Math Help:

Morning Math provides students with an opportunity to come in for help on specific homework problems, ask questions on their current math topic, and make-up or retake quizzes/tests.  It is offered every morning before school in room 205, 7:30-8:15. Math help is also available every day during Advisory in room 218.
