WELCOME TO 8th GRADE!! I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING TO KNOW EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. THIS YEAR IS A CHALLENGING YEAR IN MATH, BUT WORKING TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT YOUR BEST YEAR YET. PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO TAKE A LOOK AT A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF WHAT TO EXPECT THIS YEAR IN MATH.
*lined notebook paper
*PENCIL and eraser
Homework is EXTREMELY important in math class. The only way to get better (like in sports, playing an instrument, learning how to ride a bike, etc) is to PRACTICE!!
Full Effort= ALL the points Zero Effort=0 points
It is your responsibility to maintain an organized 3-rings notebook. In your notebook you should have this sheet, a grade sheet, all homework, and all assignments (to help study before a quiz or test).
It is your responsibility to make arrangements with me to make up work missed due to absence. I will NOT remind you of missed work. Any assignments made prior to your absence are due in class the day you return. The same rules apply for being absent for an educational trip. When you return to school you should get the notes for the class(es) that you missed (from one or both of your study buddies). Failure to make up missed work as agreed upon will result in a zero for that particular assignment. Illegal absences will automatically result in a zero for missed work.
Your grade will be based on the total points you earn on tests, quizzes, homework, participation (showing up on time, being prepared, etc), and in-class assignments divided by the total points possible. A letter grade will be assigned based on the following grade scale.
90-100% = A
80- 89% = B
70- 79% = C
60- 69% = D
0- 59% = E
