    First day First day Document Transcript

    • Welcome to Mr. Tjersland's Math 7 Class 1
    • The way it was ..... Not a problem this year since we will be using the SMARTBOARD There are a few ground rules 2
    • "The Crease" 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. 3
    • Class Responsibilities Materials 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. Heading On all papers in your notebook, this heading should be used: Name Date Math 7 Period ____ Type of sheet (ex. Homework) The two types of sheets are: Notes and Homework. Binder Organization: 1.) Arrange sheets by date 2.) Complete the Do Now, Turn the page, Complete the Class Notes, Turn the Page, Complete the homework, Turn the page 3.) Repeat Everyday 4
    • Assessments 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. 5
    • Assessments 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. 6
    • Assessments 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 satisfactory grade. 7
    • Homework 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. 8
    • 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, September 14. 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 9
    • Grading Your quarter grade will be calculated using the following categories. Cumulative Exams and Projects 50% Quizzes 20% Cumulative Review Sheets 15% Daily Homework 10% Journal 5% 10
