## 6th Grade Math

Chapters |
Tutoring SessionsStudents must come to tutoring with questions prepared in advance: Tuesdays @ 8:15 with Russell (D13) Wednesdays @ 4:15 with Reynolds (D14) Thursdays @ 8:15 with Godfrey (V3) Thursdays @ 8:15 with Edwards (D2) |

The Mathematics curriculum is based on the Common Core State Standards:

65% Formal Assessment- Mid-Chapter Assessments, End-of-Chapter Assessments, and Projects

35% Informal Assessment- Homework, Warm-Ups, Classwork, etc.

1. Be prompt 2. Be positive 3. Be prepared 4. Be respectful 5. Be responsible

During an absence, students may check my website for daily homework assignments when electronic copies are available. Class lessons are also available to prevent students from falling behind. Upon returning, it is the student’s responsibility to get class notes from a fellow student and to collect any necessary papers. That work must be turned in within the same number of days that the student was absent. A missed test/quiz will be given to the student upon his/her return to class by making arrangements with the teacher.

The following supplies are required in class daily: composition notebook (for notes), scientific calculator (TI 30x), #2 pencils, pen for grading, two-pocket folder, tape, scissors

The agenda is a KEY communication tool between students, parents, and teachers. Notes from teachers and other important information are often sent via the agenda. Students are required to have the agenda in every class every day. They will record homework in the agenda in every class and each teacher will initial or stamp the agenda signifying that the homework assignment is accurately recorded. Students should refer to the agenda before beginning homework to ensure they do the right assignment.

You can expect your child to have thirty minutes of math homework most nights except Friday. If assignments are completed within that time, your child should review their notes. Homework is due at the beginning of class the next day in order to receive full credit. Late or incomplete homework will receive partial credit. Homework is “Incomplete” if problems are left off, if directions are not followed, or if work is not shown (as directed in class).
