Digits is our online math curriculum.  This year we will be accessing the program through the web site peasrsonrealize.com. There is no physical text book however, students will have a workbook with sample problems and space to work out homework problems and take notes.  Digits offers a variety of online help and tutorials to help students working at home.  I will be available before and after school for help.  Dates and times will be posted in my room.  Students can also email me with questions.  


Homework Policy: 

Homework is usually assigned every day. Students should check their online account for assigned homework.  In the case of absence due to illness, please have students log into their account and watch the daily lesson BEFORE they return to school. Homework should also be submitted while at home unless the severity of the illness prevents it.


Homework and tests will be submitted online.  In addition to the online homework students will be required to turn in supporting work written in their workbook. Credit will not be given unless written work is submitted. Homework is due by 8:00 am the day after it is assigned and will be considered late if submitted after that time. Ten percent will be taken off for each day homework is turned in late.  No credit will be given for assignments more than two days late. 

Assignments are posted in my room, on my webpage and text reminders will be sent daily.


 Our Curriculum is based on the common core standards.  Specific standards for each grade level are listed on my Goals page.
