Homework Homework may be assigned Monday through Friday and it reinforces what we learned in class. Homework is posted on my website (mrstcorcoran.wikispaces.com) as well as the whiteboard in our classroom. It is your child's responsibility to write down assignments each day in their agenda. If your child misses 5 homework assignments, you will be notified by a note, email, or a phone call.
Homework in my class is always checked and corrected! Students will either receive a "check", partial score, or a zero. We correct the homework together in class and discuss problems if needed. It is your child's responsibility to make these corrections. If a child gets more than 30% of the problems incorrect, they should stay for extra help during the week.
Math Supplies You will need a large notebook, folder, black composition book, pencils, erasers, and a hand pencil sharpener. The notebook will be used on a daily basis to record standards, objectives, and examples. The folder will be used to store homework, and the black composition book will be your math journal.
Grading you MUST always show your work and how you arrived at your answer to receive credit. You will be graded on your problem solving skills, computation skills, communication skills, and class participation.
Homework/Math Journal 25%
Formative Assessments (quizzes) 40%
Class Participation 10%
Summative Assessments (tests, Portfolio Problems, projects) - 25%
Students will have a quiz every Friday and they will be able to use the notes they take in class on their quiz. Any quiz below a 65%, will be stamped with a Please Correct and Return By ____. Students should self-correct the quiz (on a separate piece of paper), staple the corrections to the original quiz and return by the given date. The new quiz grade will be the average of the original quiz grade and the self-corrected quiz grade. Although stamps will only be placed on quizzes below a 65%, all students have the opportunity to self-correct quizzes for a higher grade.
NO PENS ALLOWED IN MATH CLASS!
A 5-point deduction will be taken off all graded work if completed in pen!
