8th Grade Math - 2

General Class Procedures: 
To start each lesson the students get a Practice B sheet. This sheet has practice problems on the front and is blank on the back for notes. We work our way through the front side together working practice problems step-by-step. It may take us one or even two class periods to finish this sheet. When we are done the student now has a guide for that individual lesson. After that, students then get a Practice C sheet for that lesson. The Practice C is the homework sheet. The Practice C sheet mirrors the Practice B sheet. There are times when we can work on and complete the Practice C in class. Other times it will need to be finished at home. Regardless of where it is completed, the students are instructed to have their Practice B sheet by their side to help them with their homework.

About every three or four lessons we will have a formal assessment. In advance of the assessment, we will spend several days preparing. We will take and go over a practice quiz/test and have quiz/test prep problems that we will complete and go over. Both the practice quiz/test and prep problems mirror the actual assessment.

Extra Help:
In addition to class time, I have a standing invitation to all students that I am available before school, during lunch/recess, and after school for any extra help they may need with either homework or preparation for an assessment.
