The way it was .....
Not a problem this year since we will be using the SMARTBOARD
There are a few ground rules
You will see a taped off area in front of the SMARTBOARD.
This area will be called "The Crease". You are not allowed to
step into "The Crease" unless you are instructed to. Be careful
not to walk through "The Crease" when entering and exiting
class. I want everyone to be able to use the SMARTBOARD, but
we must be responsible with it.
To be prepared for class everyday you will need your Team 7A Supplies. See the Team 7A Supply List that
you received during your “0” period class.
On all papers in your notebook, this heading should be used:
Math 7 Period ____ Type of sheet (ex. Homework)
The two types of sheets are: Notes and Homework.

2.) Complete the Do Now, Turn the page, Complete the
Class Notes, Turn the Page, Complete the homework, Turn the page
3.) Repeat Everyday
Cumulative Exams: Two to three cumulative exams will be
given each quarter.
Projects: One take home project will be completed each
quarter. These projects will be graded on a rubric that you
will receive at the beginning of the assignment.
Weekly Quizzes: On Fridays we will take a weekly quiz to
assess the level of understanding on the material from the
previous Thursday to the Wednesday before the quiz.
Basic Skills Quizzes: One major problem in mathematics education
is forgetting information necessary to learn new topics. To help
prevent this problem, every Wednesday we will take a Basic Skills
Quiz to review and test knowledge of material from 5th and 6th
grade. Basic Skills Quizzes can be made up at 11:35 on Friday (the
very beginning of the lunch period). Basic Skills Quizzes can be
made up as many times as needed to learn the material and earn a
Homework: We will be using two types of
homework this year:
TYPE 1: Textbook or Worksheets
They are only assigned Mondays and Tuesdays.
TYPE 2: Castle Learning
The link and description of Castle Learning are
on the back of this sheet. Assignments will be
posted Wednesdays and due Fridays. You will
receive one extension coupon per quarter.
All homework assignments are due at the beginning of class and
will not be accepted late.
Cumulative Review Sheets
and Journal Entries
Cumulative Review Sheets: Mathematics is a subject where new
concepts are built on a strong foundation of previously covered material.
Every week this year, we will be completing a Cumulative Review Sheet to
strengthen our knowledge of previously covered material. The first sheet
will be distributed on Wednesday, September 8 and due Tuesday,
Journal: Your journal will help you develop your skills in
communicating math through writing. The journal assignments will appear
on the same sheet as the weekly Cumulative Review.
Cumulative Review Sheets and Journals will be accepted
one day late for half credit
Your quarter grade will be calculated using the following categories.
Cumulative Exams and Projects 50%
Cumulative Review Sheets 15%
Daily Homework 10%
