This is a time for students to eat lunch and work on homework, study for an upcoming assessment, or catch up on absent work. If your child is interested, they must sign up during homeroom on those days. As there are limited slots, student eligibility is VOLUNTARY and based on a first-come, first-serve basis. There will be a Study Hall sign up sheet available during morning Homeroom time on Study Hall days. Information Regarding Algebra 1 at LaSalle II Algebra 1 is a high school class that is offered to select 7th and 8th graders at LaSalle II. The criteria used to determine eligibility includes:
6th Grade Student Schedule
Policies and Procedures Daily Math/Algebra Supplies:
Algebra Homework Policy: Algebra homework will be graded in class DAILY. 5 points will be given for 100% completion (all questions answered with effort and work shown). If homework is incomplete or work is missing, students will not receive credit and must complete a missing homework log. Students that do not show their work will receive 0/5 points. Students that do not have their complete homework on time can show it to me the next day in class for 3 out of 5 points. Math Homework Policy: Math homework is assigned almost DAILY. Students are held accountable to check their homework at home after they complete each assignment. This will give students immediate feedback as to whether or not they solved the problem correctly. This instant feedback makes the homework more meaningful for students. The answers can be found in the back of the math book. In order to get the full 5 points for homework, students are expected to:
Students that complete the assignment but do not complete the homework check will receive 4/5 points. Students that do not show their work will receive 0/5 points. Students that do not have their complete homework on time can show it to me the next morning during homeroom for 3/5 points. IXL Online Work Weekly IXL homework is due Sunday evening at 8pm and written work is due Monday morning during breakfast. 80% of the grade entails getting an 80+ Smart Score in each assigned skill and 20% of the grade entails turning in the complete hand-written work. Extra Credit: Extra credit is never given on an individual basis to boost scores to the next letter grade on report cards. Late Work: Math homework is due at the beginning of math class. Students who forgot to complete the work, forgot the homework in their locker or who do not have it with them in class will receive a "missing" score in the grade book which counts as a zero. Students must complete a missing homework log sheet and can earn partial credit for bringing in the homework the following day. Absent Work: Students will have the same number of days to complete work after an absence as the days they were absent. I encourage students to use the homework calendar to be sure they complete all homework. It is the students responsibility to seek out the teacher for any handouts and notes that were missed due to an absence via email or by scheduling a meeting before/after school. Test Corrections: Students that score below 70% on a quiz or test have an option to complete test corrections and earn up to half of the missed points back, up to a revised grade of 70%. Students must follow every step of the test correction policy within 2 days after the original quiz/test is returned (see attached file below). Grading Policy: Your grades will be given in the following categories:
