Classroom Policies and Procedures:

Grading:

80%  Assessments (Common Grade Level Chapter Tests, Quick Checks, Quizzes)

20%  Daily Work (Homework, Daily Classwork, etc)

Please check PowerSchool regularly for updates to grades.  If there are ever any questions concerning grades please feel free to contact me.   

 

Homework:

Nightly homework will be assigned and focuses on reinforcing the content being learned in the classroom. The assignment should be labeled with your name, period #, page #, and problem #’s.  The expectation is that homework will be complete and turned in for grading the next class day. You will receive 5 points for completion.  We will go over homework at the beginning of the next class period. Showing work on all problems will be required to receive credit.  Please box or circle your final answers.

 

Late Work:

Should you not complete a homework assignment, a zero will be entered into PowerSchool. This means that I have recognized that you did not have your work done for that day (or in class when it was due). Partial credit (3/5) can be received if you turn in the assignment the following day.  After the extra day has passed, the grade will remain a “0” in PowerSchool. If you forget your textbook—you have access online through www.my.hrw.com.

 

Absent Work:

Upon return, it is your responsibility to gather missed work/notes as well as hand in any work due on the day of the absence. For every day absent you have one additional day to complete missed assignments.  Please make sure you check the “While You Were Out Bulletin” to receive any handouts from that day’s class.  In, addition all assignments are posted on my webpage.  Special circumstances and absences do occur; please discuss with me and we can decide on the best plan!

 

Tests and Quizzes:

Tests will take place at the end of each chapter.  The test will be announced ahead of time and written on the classroom calendar.  Quizzes will be both announced and unannounced (quick checks) and can take place at any point during the course.  Quizzes can focus on a specific section or on several sections at a time.  Don’t feel overwhelmed!  If you practice, study your notes, and ask questions you will be prepared ☺.

 

Extra Help

The 6th grade teachers run a Math Club for any student wanting extra help. You do not need to sign up to attend – just show up!  There will be more details to come.  Math club is held in room 206.
