Course Description/Overview/Welcome Statement
Students should have a connection to their classes Google Classroom through their school email. If you don’t, please come see me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will take notes almost everyday in this class. To keep organized, I am asking that you bring a composition notebook, a small folder and pencil for this course.
1. Participate: Be on task and follow
2. Punctual: Be in the room, getting out
needed materials when the bell
3. Polite: Use appropriate, positive
4. Personal Space: Keep hands, feet ,
and objects to yourself.
5. Persevere: Keep trying, even when it’s
When Expectations are Broken:
- Complete a Behavior Think Sheet and move seats
- Depending on severity I will do this 2 times and at the 2nd time parents will be emailed or called.
- Parent or guardian contact and a lunch detention
- Parents will be updated from then on about their students behavior ups and downs
Administration will be contacted since the behavior cannot be solved
*Violent behavior (physical) will be referred to the office and parents
Most homework assignments will be “due” at the beginning of every class while Notes will be checked at each Unit Test. Any assignments may be redone, and handed in to get a higher grade. Together, they are worth 10% of your overall grade. Assignments CAN be turned in after the “due” date.
Tests will be given after each unit that is finished. You are expected to be in class on test days. Tests are worth 90% of your overall grade.
You are allowed to do a retake on each test, but to do so you have to do test corrections. This means DON’T LOSE YOUR TEST!
No such thing. I have a “due” date to keep students on schedule, but assignments can be turned in until the term finishes. Having said that, waiting until the end of the term is not recommended.
There is NO EXTRA CREDIT!
A = 93-100%
C = 73-76%

D+ = 67-69%
B = 83-86%
D = 63-66%
B- = 80-82%
D- = 62-60%
C+ = 77-79%
F = Below 60%
I will also be at school 30 minutes before classes start and at least 1.5 hours after school has ended. Feel free to come by!
If you happen to miss a class, don’t worry! All work that is handed out can be found in your math sections drawer inside my classroom.
The notes for the day you miss will be on you, the student, to fill out. Your peers will have the notes that you may copy and ask questions from. If you need extra instruction from me, come during my office hours and I would LOVE to help!
