Middle School Math Mrs. McClanahan We're already in the 15th week of school! This means that we have 2 weeks to have our grades SET for the 2nd quarter. If you need to retake a quiz to improve your grade, now is the time! Don't wait until it's too late! Make an appointment with me today to retake a test or quiz and then study to make it worth your time and mine. Be attentive in class! These 2 weeks Really count for your learning and can make or break your grade for the 2nd quarter. 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 to practice at home 2 times each night. Math Minute Hall of Fame! . 8th Grade * Sophie * Rebecca * Ty * Taylor * Carter * Jenna * Danny *Ryan * Zack * Spencer
7th Grade * Kris * Ethan * Madison * Victor * Tanner 6th Grade * Suzy *Chase *Julia *Taylor *Kade M. *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! . ****** We take a test or quiz every week in Math Class. 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! ******* Birthdays - We will celebrate birthdays on a monthly basis on the last Friday of each month. We will celebrate November Birthdays, Friday, December 15th, at 2 o'clock. If your child has a birthday during December, 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! ******* | Developing students who are COMPETENT, Productive and Responsible by promoting the acedemic skills & character to succeed in life.
