Math 6-8 Resource

Small group classes follow the general curriculum pacing guide.  Students are exposed to the standards through direct instruction and classroom supports to help them achieve proficiency or mastery of concepts and procedures.  In addition to the standards, students receive instruction in basic math skills which support grade level standards.

Grading guidelines:

Unit Tests 50%
Quizzes 30%
Classwork 20%

Homework is typically assigned at least once a week.  It is graded for effort, as an indicator of additional practice.  Students are also encouraged to review concepts at home daily for at least 10-15 minutes to reinforce classroom learning.

Students may access tenmarks.com, a standards-based online tutorial with assessment.  They have been provided with login information, but I can provide that to parents upon request.

Help Sessions:  If students will let me know the day before, I am available mornings (7:00-7:35) and frequently after school to provide tutoring.
