Class Information


Welcome back everyone!
I am looking forward to year four of teaching MIddle School Math at Christ King School. 

 

WE are off to a great start in all the grades. I will continue working with all the kids on my goal from last year, which is using their mathematical sense.....recognizing and asking,

"Does my answer make sense and why/how do I know!?"

 

 

30 minutes of KHAN ACADEMY

IS AN

ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL ASSIGNMENT

EVERY WEEKEND ALL YEAR

*except for the first weekend of school, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving Break, 

Christmas & Easter Break

 

KHAN TOPICS

12/8-12/10

 

7C: MORE two step equation word problems

 

7D: Two-Step Equations

 

PA: MORE two step equation word problems 

 

Algebra: Intercepts from an equation

 

6th grade: adding and subtracting mixed fractions with unlike denominators

 

 

 

THIS YEAR:

  • There will be approximately three quizzes per chapter. Please reference the middle school calendar for all dates. 
  • Quizzes can be corrected for half credit back but must be returned the following day in order to receive that credit. 
  • There are no retakes on Unit Tests. Please come prepared. All tests will be sent home for a signature and students must correct all mistakes. 

 

Homework has three symbols in the grade books.

  1. 100% means they correctly did all their problems.
  2. 88% means that a student got two wrong or less. If a child receives an 88%, they are able to make as many corrections as they want until they receive a 100%, but it is not required.  Corrections should be done when they receive the assignment back. They are not accepted after the Unit Test. 
  3. 0% means that the student had more than 2 wrong, and corrections are mandatory. Do not panic when you see a 0. It is simply a symbol that they need to make corrections and owe work.

After the first month of school, a demerit will be given out if they come to class unprepared. 

Textbooks are only used in sixth and seventh grade. They are able to leave their textbooks in my classroom. They will also be set up with an online version if they do not want to carry it home. TEST IT OUT AT HOME FIRST! Do not assume you are set up online until you test it first AT HOME. Then, you will know that you can leave your book at school.
