Middle School Math Mrs. McClanahan We're already in the 9th week of school! Developing students who are COMPETENT, Productive and Responsible by promoting the acedemic skills & character to succeed in life. Math Minutes Practice -We study a basic math skill each week in class and get an opportunity to pass that Math Minute each Friday. Students are definitely encouraged to practice at home! Math Minute Hall of Fame! . 8th Grade * Sophie * Rebecca * Taylor * Ty * Carter
7th Grade * Kris 6th Grade * Suzy * Chase *More students are close to reaching this goal in each class! I look forward to entering more names soon! To earn this Award students need to pass 7 Different Math Minutes! . ****** Sixth grade students take their first Math Test, this week! I encourage students to TRY every problem and show me what they can do. ****** Test and Quiz Retakes <--this is a link to read more about this process. I believe that as a student participates in class and practices their math homework at home, their understanding of those concept can grow. For me, that's the whole point. Therefore, when a student wants to retake a quiz or test, I want to give them a chance to show their new understanding. Below are the requirements for this privilege.
****** Important things to know about Math Homework: * I assign homework every night. * Each problem should be worked. It's important to practice! * I will answer any questions the following day. * I want students to try every problem on every assignment. * Students need to complete every assignment, even on days they are not in class. * The Homework Document lists each days assignment, most assignments require the text book to complete the assignment. * Homework is collected sporadically to see that it is complete. All homework should be completed in the Math Notebook, in a chronological order. (6th grade will work pages in there workbooks) * Homework is worth 20% of the overall Math grade. * The Weekly Quiz or Chapter Test will consist of the same type of problems that were practiced that week (or previous weeks) in the Homework. Math Minutes Practice - We study a basic math skill each week in class and will get an opportunity to pass that Math Minute each Friday. Students are definitely encouraged to practice at home! ******* on a monthly basis on the last Friday of each month. We will celebrate October Birthdays, Friday, October 27th, at 2 o'clock. If your child had/has a birthday during October, please feel free to send them to school with a yummy treat, on this designated Friday, to share with each person in the class to celebrate! ******* | Links: What did I miss while I was absent?
