Welcome to Math!
In order to have a successful year we need to start at the beginning and work together. First, teaching you math is my priority. I am here for you. Please don’t hesitate to ask questions or see me to discuss anything.
Below is an outline of the grading procedures, classroom procedures, extra help opportunities, supplies needed, calculator usage, discipline procedures etc. Please review it carefully, sign the bottom and return it. Please feel free to make any comments or suggestions.
- Tests/Quizzes/Projects/Class Work/Homework: 90% of the quarterly grade. Tests will be announced in advance so students have the opportunity to plan their study time and will be cumulative. There will also be at least one quiz given weekly. The weekly quizzes may be in the form of defining vocabulary or traditional type of quiz assessing knowledge of skills.
- Participation: 10% of the quarterly grade. Students need to actively participate in classroom activities, classroom assignments, warm ups, ask and answer questions, and carefully copy class notes and examples. Students need to be prepared for class by having their supplies.
You are expected to be in class and on time every day. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class. If you are absent, you will have an extension of 2 class periods for each class missed to turn in your work, take a missed test or quiz without a late penalty. You will be responsible for copying missed class notes and examples from a classmate and see me for extra assistance with the material, if needed.
- Folder and notebook
