How to succeed in this class:

ØAlways come to class on time and prepared to work (see materials needed listed above)

ØComing to class prepared also means doing your homework. You will have math homework most nights. In order to learn during class time it is important that you always do your homework.

ØStudents will not be excused to get forgotten math supplies or assignments.

ØChronic unpreparedness will result in parent contact.

ØLate work if handed in at the end of the school day will be given full credit.

ØWhen you are absent you have the same number of days missed to hand in all missed work. For example, if you are absent for 3 days you have 3 days upon your return to complete the missed items.

ØIndividual help will be available after school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until 4:30 pm.



Assessment will occur on a daily basis and will be part of the ongoing educational process to enhance learning. Throughout the school year you will be evaluated as much on process as on product.

·Your grade in math will be based on your performance on homework, notes, quizzes, and tests. I will always provide you with detailed guidelines for assignments.

·Grade reports will be available online through . I will make sure you all know how to do this once this component is up and running with our new gradebook system.
