Welcome Back, Wolves!!!!






Dear Parent(s),




I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to our math class and to extend a brief overview of my academic expectations.




Math is a course of instruction that is dependent on prior knowledge and accentuated by practice and application until mastery is obtained. Due to this unique process, it is inherent that ample practice be obtained by all students.  Assignments are given often in order to provide opportunities to build thought processes and skills. I encourage and teach students to reach their highest potential.  Your child will be completing assignments which promote critical thinking skills (higher-order thinking). Practices and experiences writing to explain the conceptual meanings of the math problems solved will help to ensure your child's success on the LEAP test which will be administered in April.  I encourage you to visit my class website at OnCourse regularly in order to obtain information regarding any upcoming quizzes/tests, our most recent classroom notes, and our homework assignments. Students should not wait until the night before a quiz or test to cram in study time; this should be accomplished on a continual, on-going basis. 


  • Students should establish a good routine and quiet place in order to study and complete home assignments.



  •  All classroom notes are found on my website in Microsoft Office Power Point files.  Your child will have a hard copy of these notes which should be kept in a math folder and used for daily review.  Notes will be counted as a grade. 


  •  Homework assignments are updated daily on my website before I leave the classroom each afternoon.  All homework problems should be completed neatly.  Encourage your child to highlight any problems which were unclear in order to be ready to address these at the beginning of the class the following day.    




Numerous handouts have been given to my homeroom students.  I respectfully request that you read these carefully with your child.  Please sign and return necessary forms as soon as possible.




I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year!






Tests/ Quizzes    (90%)                      Includes:  Lesson Quizzes, Cumulative chapter/unit tests, Major projects/presentations    




Classwork/Participation  (10%)        Includes:  Classwork, homework, online assignments (any task done with ongoing feedback or assistance)

                                                             Rubric for Scoring Classwork.docx  










                        3-prong binder with section dedicated to Math/Enrichment classes only


                        Pens and Highlighters


                        Pencils with Erasers


                        Loose leaf (in a binder or a folder)






Makeup Work Policy


                        Each student will be responsible for their own makeup work.  Students should refer to the hanging file folders for missing assignments/tests/quizzes/notes/worksheets.  If a student fails to complete an assignment in class (Quiz or Test), he/she will be given time in MARC to complete the assignment upon his/her return.  All other work will be completed during the student’s personal time.







Your child has an online account in School 21. This program focuses on enabling students to successfully develop mathematical reasoning.  Your child should have a sheet labeled School 21 in his/her binder containing individual usernames and passwords.  This website is accessible from home, and your child may use it any time for additional, differentiated practice.






Help your child to master multiplication and division facts!  Relfex math is a fun and full of games that help students quickly gain math fact fluency and confidence.  Students were given a letter for parents in order to facilitate progress monitoring.  Have fun dressing up your avatars!  If your child misplaced his/her username or password, email me!!!   Click here to go directly to REFLEX MATH.





Homework assignments are posted on this website. Work all problems neatly.  Highlight any problems for which you have questions and be ready to address these in class. Don't wait until the night before a quiz or test to cram in study time; this should be accomplished on a continual, on-going basis. Establish a good routine and quiet place in order to study and complete your home assignments.
