WELCOME to 6th Grade Math class!!!  This year is going to be filled with many challenges for you as a student, as well as for me as your teacher.  Everything we do this year will be based on the Common Core Standards for Math. Your first year of middle school will be challenging and fun.  Here are some guidelines for our classroom.

Absence - You are expected to get your homework assignment out of the absent work folder.  Please ask me for assistance on anything.  I am ALWAYS happy to help you!  Please review the homework expectations that are posted on the website.

Extra Credit – There will be various opportunities for extra credit monthly.
Extra Help – is almost always available.  See me to set up a time when you can get assistance.  Lunch time and afterschool on Wednesdays are all fantastic times to get extra help!

Grading – Your grade will be determined on the basis of the number of points you have accumulated out of the total number of possible points.  Grades are based on in-class assignments, homework, tests, quizzes and projects.  You can ALWAYS check your grade on-line with your username and password.  There should be no surprises!

      90% - 100%     A                  70% - 79%   C                        59% or less       F

      80% - 89%       B                  60% - 69%   D

Homework Expectations
– Homework assignments are always listed on the homework board and should be entered into your planner when you first enter class. You will have homework Monday-Thursday.  I expect homework to be completed and passed in on time, done neatly, and to the best of your ability.
POW's – Problems of the week are given out on Mondays and are due on Thursdays.
Materials – You are expected to come to class prepared every day.  You must always have your math journal, a sharpened pencil and paper.
