    I.  Tests & Quizzes- 60% of final grade   

  • Students usually will receive at least 2-3 days notice before a test or quiz.  We normally review for the assessment the day before. If your child wants extra help before a quiz or test, have them see me for a pass to come in before school.  I will  be available for extra help on Tuesdays before school at 7:15 am and on Mondays and Wednesdays after school until 3:45pm.

    II.  Homework- 15% of final grade   

  • Homework plays an important role in math class as it provides a time for the students to practice the skills they have learned in class.  Due to its importance, I expect each student to complete all assignments on time.  

  • Homework will mainly be given on Mondays-Thursdays.  It will be checked every day; however, it may not be collected every day.  I expect each assignment to be done neatly and in pencil.  I grade the homework based on whether the assignment was completed, whether the work was shown, whether it was done in pencil, etc.

  • If a student is absent, he/she should look at the white board located at the front of the room.  He/She will have the same number of days to make up the work that he/she missed.  He/She needs to remember to turn in the absent work so I get the grade in the grade book

III.  Classwork/Partner Work/Groupwork/Notebook- 25% of final grade

  • Classwork will be graded on following the 4 B’s- Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe,& Be There,Be Ready

  • Partner work will be graded on staying on task/being serious, working quietly, and working cooperatively.

  • Group work will be graded on correct answers and on following the CHAMPS expectations.

  • Notebook will be graded on the papers being neatly cut and pasted into notebook, pages being completed, and pages being in the correct order.


In Class Procedures

All students are required to have a notebook/binder in which they will be able to complete warm-ups, notes, and other class work.  Students need to have a section in their accordion folder designated only for math class in which tests/quizzes, assignment worksheets, and other math papers are kept.  Students need to bring all supplies (notebook/binder, pencil, calculator, folder, paper with them to class every day)
