Learning From Home:
This is going to be an interesting two weeks for all of us. Not only do students have to now complete lessons and assignments completely at home, but parents are doubling up as teachers and teachers are learning how to instruct electronically. During this time, I will be uploading links and videos to help you as best as I can, and I appreciate your feedback as I try to make sure that everything is working. I will do my best to respond to your questions quickly, but keep in mind I am also homeschooling my 4 children, so I may not reply immediately but I will reply!
The field trip to Kenwood on March 24 has been postponed
HOMEWORK will be updated WEEKLY on each class page
Welcome to Middle School Math!
It is my goal that this class is challenging and enjoyable for all. With hard work, I know that everyone can be successful!
Math Policies and Expectations
Homework and Late Work
Homework will be given on a regular basis. The goal of homework is to provide students with an opportunity to practice the skills that were learned in class and to review them outside of the classroom. It is important that all students complete homework assignments on time and to the best of their abilities. Late work will be accepted up until the date of the Unit Exam, but students will lose 10% for each day an assignment is late with assignments over a week late being worth 50% of the original grade. Chronic late work will result in a parent-teacher-student conference.
Students will be provided an opportunity to resubmit tests with corrections. Corrected tests must be resubmitted within one week of the test being returned to students. In order to receive credit for test corrections, the following must be completed on a separate sheet of paper: number the problem or question and rewrite it, write at least 2 complete sentences explaining what the error was and what you did to correct the error, show all work to correct the problem and circle the correct answer. It is possible to earn up to half the missed points back.
Assessments/Projects - 40%
Quizzes - 35%
Homework - 10%
Classwork - 15%
