Welcome to Math...the only subject that counts:)I'm looking forward to a great year helping you all be successful mathematicians. I want you to be successful & know you can be if you put forth the effort and ask for help when you need it. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask for help during class. If you need additional help, please email me (include your class period) or set up a time to meet with me during Advisory or lunchtime. As we transition back to school, set up a routine and work on building good study habits. Don't procrastinate; get your work finished and turned in on time to not only help your grade, but more importantly, help your learning. Stay focused, take notes, participate, ask questions, complete/correct all work, and study for assessments.
Oh, and did I mention, don't be afraid to ask for help!?!Math is AWESOME...and the only place where someone can buy 72 watermelons and 81 pineapples and nobody wonders why:)
All notes, assignments, and solutions to homework will be posted in Google Classroom on the Classwork page.
Use your spiral themebook to take notes and show your work. Remember...you must show work as shown in class or you receive no credit for those problems.
Check your grade weekly in Power School to see how you're doing and see if you have any missing work. Do NOT check Google Classroom for your grade; the information in Power School is what counts!
Retakes are available; you may earn up to an 80% on a retake but you must meet certain requirements to be able to do the retake and it's usualy scheduled no later than 2 weeks after the day of the original test. Check out the Class Policies to be sure you understand the process. Still have questions??? Ask for clarification:)
Late work is accepted up until the time of the test that covers the assignment; after that, it earns no points.
Always remember...I'm here to help you be successful. Don't be afraid to ask for help:)
