Welcome Elder Eagles to Ms. Hunt's Seventh Grade Mathematics Class.  I am looking forward to a successful year of taking it to the next level with you!

Course Description

Instructional time will focus on four critical areas: (1) developing understanding of and applying proportional relationships; (2) developing understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations; (3) solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, and working with two-and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume; (4) drawing inferences about populations based on samples.

MATERIALS

• Math Textbook:  enVisionmath 2.0 Volume 1 and Volume 2 (covered with contact paper)
• 2 math composition books
• Binder with loose leaf paper
• Dry erase markers, pencils & pencil sharpener

Assessments

Math assessments will be administered regularly throughout the school year and are generally on Tuesdays.  Students will be notified in advance of testing dates and study guides will be given.  Tests will be sent home after graded for one night only, and should be signed by the following day.  Tests not returned or returned without a signature will result in an after school detention.

Homework

Homework is mandatory! Expect to have math homework at least 4 days a week.  Students will need Internet access because the majority of math homework assignments are online.  Students should strive for 100% on homework because the site does allow them to correct the problems that they get incorrect.  They can also study the lessons online to review the material we have covered in class.

Lake Forest Charter School recognizes the importance of homework as part of the educational process. Homework posted on the website is as current as practically possible.  Assignments are subject to revision based on student mastery of objectives taught in the classroom, and serves as a weekly guide for students and parents.  Student agendas will continue to serve as the main source for home learning assignments.  As such, parents must check student agendas in an effort to obtain the most current daily assignments.

P.S. LFC recommends that you supervise and monitor your child’s Internet activities at all times.

Class Rules

1. Have math material in your hands and ready to go before you enter the classroom

2. Place math material on your desk and line backpack up in the rear of the classroom

3. Be at your desk and start warm-up right after pledge.

5. Do not distract, disrupt, or demonstrate poor behavior

6. Use class time wisely and participate in activities

A:  93-100

B:  85-92

Tutoring

After school tutoring will be offered for all students and required for some.  Students who score below 70% on tests and benchmark exams will be required to attend tutoring weekly in order to have additional practice and review concepts not yet mastered prior to state testing.  Tutoring sessions are held Wednesday's (before extended learning begins) from 3:45PM- 5:00PM in room 2011.
