I am very excited to teach your child! On our math journey together, students will explore math while making real-life connections empowering them to excel. Students will be challenged to identify, analyze, predict and apply mathematical ideas communicating them orally and in writing. By doing this, your child will become critical thinkers and lifelong learners!

Class Supplies Needed

  • 1 **2 pocket folder with brads**  (Student Needs ASAP)
  • 2 pack of pencils
  • 1 Box of Kleenex
  • 1 pack of Crayola markers (Bonus Points)

Course homework policy  

Students will be expected to study their Cornell Notes for 5 minutes every night. This is the main assignment that they will have for the year. It is extremely important, once a student leaves the classroom they automatically forget 70% of the material.  When they read over their notes it brings their rate of remembering back up to 70%.


Corrections on work:

If a student makes below a 70 on any assignment they will be able to make corrections.  Once corrections are made the average of the two grades will be taken for the final grade that will be posted in the grade book. No student can fail my class unless they do not put the effort in.



Missing Work:  

If you were absent from class, you have * two days to make up the work.   If you miss a test, you must make up the test the following day the student returns to class. If a student is absent from class either off-campus or has been placed In-School-Suspension, it is their responsibility to get the work and notes that were missed.  Missed assignments will be located in the tray labeled by the day of the week or posted in google classroom. Missed assignments due to an absence will be due according to the length of the assignments.
