Welcome to Math Level 3!!
I would like to give you a little insight on our year. The textbook we use is Math Course 3, McDougal Littell. This text is available online at www.classzone.com. I encourage all students to use this website as reinforcement. Available on this site is the book itself, different chapter activities, games, practice tests, tutorials, etc. You can use this website anytime, anywhere with or without an access code.
The textbooks can stay in the classroom, unless a student wants to check one out to take home. Their notebooks should have enough information in them to complete the homework assignments. If you would like your child to check out a book to keep at home, please have them do so.
Expectations: My students are expected to follow our school’s expectations every day. Those expectations extend into all classrooms as well. If a student does not follow these expectations, a yellow slip will be written.
First Five: I display a math problem on the Smart Board every day that we have a lesson. I expect all students to complete this problem as soon as they enter the class and it will count as a grade. The student does not always have to get the problem right to get the credit. If there is a valuable attempt and sufficient work, they will receive credit.
Late Work: Assignments that are not turned in by the due date will receive a purple slip. I do follow the handbook’s attendance policy, so if a student is absent due to sickness, it is his/her responsibility to gather that work and get it completed after they return. If a student has knowledge of a future absence, it is again his/her responsibility to complete that work and turn in on time.
Additional Help: If a student needs additional time to work or extra help, I am available before school. I usually arrive by 7:00 am. If all the doors are locked, please have them call my cell phone to let them in (406-489-1883). I am also available after school until at least 4:00 pm (usually later). Students can come down during their study halls to either work or participate in the lesson again. I encourage students to listen to the lesson a second time, especially if they are struggling. Videos of the lessons are available on Stream, which is an app on their Office 365 account.
Corrections: Students can correct any assignment that they have scored below a 79% on. Once all the problems have been corrected, I will change the grade to a 79%. This does not apply to tests. The corrections for the chapter must be completed before we take that chapter test.
Projects: I assign one out-of-classroom project a week before the Christmas break, which is due upon return. This is a fun project for the students to practice using measurements and to work on fractions, decimals, etc. The instructions for this project will be posted on the website.
Parents, please contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
