Welcome to TMS!
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 Red Devil class for intervention.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ INTERVENTION ~Red Devil Period is a great time to come see me if you have questions. Ask your RDP and they will check with me to see if it is ok to send you to room 122 to get some questions answered. <3
~ 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.
