• 7th Grade Mathematics

     

     I am looking forward to a wonderful school year filled with great academic success for each of my students.  All students will be taking the NYS Math Exam at the end of this year.  Every student will take the Integrated Algebra regents examination at the end of the 8th grade.  To ensure each child’s success, I would like to share the policies of my class with you. 
     
    • Every student’s grade consists of: Class exams, quizzes, homework, class participation, portfolios, notebooks, and projects.  Grades will be calculated as follows:

    • Homework is given on a regular basis.  All assignments are expected to be handed in on time. There will be a reduction in credit for late assignments.  Free homework passes will be given out at the end of each marking period for students who have completed all assignments on time.
    • Each student will keep a portfolio that is a collection of all pre and post tests and tasks that have been graded.
    • Every student is expected to arrive to class in a timely and orderly fashion.  Enter the classroom prepared. Each student must come to class with their notebook, workbook, homework, calculator and pencil every day.  Open your notebook and take out your homework as soon as you enter the room.  
    • If extra help is needed please see me so we can arrange a meeting at lunch.  Lunch tutoring will be offered a few days a week.  Be sure to ask me for a pass if you plan to come up for tutoring during lunch.  No student will be allowed upstairs without a pass. 
    • Please make sure your child is completing their homework assignments and studying on a regular basis.  If you would like to track your child's progress, please visit http://pupilpath.skedula.com.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call me at the school or e-mail me at kdiario@schools.nyc.gov I will get back to you as soon as possible.
