Math 6 & Math 7
~Welcome to MY CLASS!
~MATH IS CONTAGIOUS!
~MATH IS EVERYWHERE!
~"MATH" IS WHAT I WILL HELP YOU USE AND UNDERSTAND AND LOVE!
~YOU BRING THE RESPECT AND RESPONSIBILITY AND I WILL BRING ON THE HELP, GUIDANCE, AND UNDERSTANDING!
~IT WILL BE FUN - CHALLENGING - REWARDING - CHALLENGING - MEANINGFUL - CHALLENGING - FUN - AND MUCH MUCH MORE!
~ To be successful . . . ask questions, don't give up, keep up with your daily work, practice previously learned skills, challenge yourself, try-try- and try again.
~ Remember to come see me if you have questions. I am available before and after school as well as during the regular school day. Also, come in during your study hall for intervention.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ INTERVENTION ~After school - I am available most days after school until 3:15 but please ask so that I know you are coming in so that I can let you know if I have a meeting or club already scheduled.
~ PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE . . . REMEMBER TO SHOW YOUR WORK. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT WHERE YOU ARE MAKING YOUR MISTAKES UNLESS I SEE YOUR WORK. I WANT YOU TO BE A "MATH THINKER" - BUT, MOST OF WHAT WE DO, NEEDS SOME COMPUTATION, SO, SHOW YOUR WORK AND I CAN HELP YOU CORRECT WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE IN PROCESS. ;-)
~SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER . . . I GIVE LOTS OF CLASS TIME TO WORK - WHETHER WE ARE GOING OVER YOUR QUESTIONS OR I AM GIVING YOU TIME TO GET STARTED ON THE "NEW STUFF", I WANT YOU TO USE YOUR TIME WELL SO THAT WE CAN WORK THROUGH ANY DIFFICULTIES THAT COME UP. Please speak up if you are confused - I cannot read your mind so I don't know if you need further explanations unless you speak up. IF YOU ARE SPENDING MORE THAN A CLASS PERIOD FINISHING YOUR ASSIGNMENT AT HOME, SOMETHING IS WRONG. PLEASE COME SEE ME IF THIS IS THE CASE.
