Math Classroom Procedures

  1. 1. 2010-2011
  2. 2.  A procedure is a particular course of action intended to achieve a result; a particular way of accomplishing an objective.  Procedures are the way that we do things in math. We have procedures so that everyone has the opportunity to learn in a safe environment.
  3. 3. Why we have a start of class procedure.  To be able to start quickly.  We have more time to work on our assignments.  More class time to do work means less work that has to go home!
  4. 4.  Enter the room through the door  Enter quietly and sit in your assigned seat  Have a sharpened pencil and your other class materials ready.  Copy the “Warm-up” from the board into your notebook.  Copy any homework assignments into your school agenda.  Remain seated and quiet until I direct otherwise.
  5. 5. Why we have end of class procedures .  To make sure that all equipment, materials and supplies are safely and neatly put away so that we can use them again  To keep our classroom clean and safe  To get everyone to their next class on time
  6. 6.  Begin to clean up and put away materials only AFTER you have been given instructions to do so.  Put all materials and supplies in the appropriate place.  Pick up any trash from around your area and dispose of it properly.  Make sure that tables are properly aligned.  Remain seated and quiet until I dismiss the class.  Exit through the door.
  7. 7. Why We Have Procedures for Getting Materials.  To make sure that everyone has the materials they need to learn  To make sure that materials remain in good condition
  8. 8.  I have general supplies for student use at my desk such as paper clips ,stapler etc.  Do not remove the general supplies from my desk.  Pick up and/or use supplies only after you have been instructed.  All supplies must be accounted for at the end of class.
  9. 9. Why we have asking questions procedures.  To make sure everyone has the opportunity to express themselves.  To be able to hear and learn from others.  To make sure everyone fully understands what we are doing.
  10. 10.  Raise your hand timely to speak; wait to be called on.  Do not approach me with your questions; I will come to you.  Whenever another person is speaking, you should be listening.  Never interrupt while someone is speaking, that is rude.
  11. 11. Why it is important to have this procedure .  So that everyone can hear information they need to know  So I do not have to yell ,or lose my voice. When I raise my hand, all students have to :  be quiet  stop what they are doing  give me their full attention.
  12. 12. Why we have transitioning procedures.  To maximize instructional time  To make sure everyone knows what they are to do in the next activity  Listen for all instructions and permission to move before transitioning.  Move quickly and quietly to the next activity. This is not time to socialize.
  13. 13. Why we have procedures to leave class during instruction.  To prevent the disruption of class  To prevent losing instruction.  You are allowed 2 hall passes per 4 weeks in Math class.  This includes the bathroom, nurse, locker, etc.  You have 2 minutes to use the bathroom.  Use your passes wisely.  At most 2 students can take a hall pass during one class unless it is an emergency.
  14. 14. Why we have individual work procedures .  To allow students to learn and work without distractions  To maximize working independently
  15. 15.  There is NO TALKING during independent work.  You may only ask me for help with individual daily assignments by applying the asking questions procedure.  I may help you only 10 seconds for each question.
  16. 16. Why we have group work procedures.  So that we are able to do group activities.  To make sure all directions are heard and followed.  To keep students safe during activities.
  17. 17.  All group members must participate in group assignments.  QUIET talk is allowed during group work (quiet talk means no vibrations, no weird noises , it is a whisper)  You are not allowed to associate with other groups .  Only one person from each group is allowed out of their seat at a time .  Do not touch group materials until directed to do so.
  18. 18. Why we have this procedure.  To make sure everyone has a good learning environment.  To make sure learning is not interrupted by sharpening pencils.
  19. 19.  Be prepared with all of your supplies before class begins. “I don’t have a pencil” is not an excuse!!!!  Sharpen your pencil at the beginning of class, before beginning the “Warm-up”. Otherwise, timely raise your hand for permission.  Never sharpen your pencil or ask to borrow something while someone is talking. This is not polite.

  24. 24. Why we have this procedure.  To understand the math concept and review it at home.  To go to next activity smoothly.  Students should try to finish writing notes in assigned time.  If someone finishes early, he/she must be quiet and should deal with the extra problems.  If someone does not finish on time , he/she should complete by looking from classmate’s notes.
