dependent and independent variables open-worksheet quiz tomorrow
The text is published by Scott Foresman. We will study fractions and decimals, ratios and proportional relationships, positive and negative numbers, expressions, equations, geometry, and statistics. There will be hands-on materials and activities used to help reinforce concepts. Students are expected to do the daily homework. Homework quizzes will be after every 4-5 assignments and given about once every two weeks. There will be a class review before tests. Each class will start with daily boardwork questions out of a Simple Solutions book that will be checked weekly for progress.
Homework quizzes, chapter quizzes/tests, and boardwork make up the quarterly grade for this class. Students will be encouraged to think and problem solve on a deeper level that the Common Core curriculum reinforces.
Students who struggle need to let me know when they need extra help!
Homework quizzes are to check for homework completion but also require that the student goes back over the mistakes they have made on their homework. Students are encouraged to have me do problems from their homework that they missed.
The second part of the Math grade is the tests and quizzes. More quizzes than tests will be given as the material gets harder. Tests cover more material than quizzes, making them longer in length and worth more points.
Finally, boardwork worksheets will be collected each day and graded as a whole each week.
