Policies & Classroom Information
Students should be completing homework nightly.
Homework grades reflect effort and completion.
Students may come to extra help to make corrections/retake quizzes.
Wednesday after school until 2:45. Mornings will be announced each week to be most beneficial for upcoming assessments.
Students coming to extra help should have tried the homework and be prepared with questions.
Students will not be allowed to make corrections/retakes on quizzes until their review sheets have been completed.
This year I will be trying to flip the class. This means students will watch the instruction and take notes at home, while doing more of the practice in school. I hope this will make learning math more effective, easier and more individualized for all students. I also hope this alleviates some of the anxiety and frustration that is often associated with completing homework nightly. Although, it is more important than ever that all students complete the homework (watching the videos and taking notes) every night!
Below you will find a video that helps to explain this method.
