7th Syllabus 2018-2019


7th Grade Math

Miss Dennis

 

“Every accomplishment starts with the decision to TRY!”

 

Welcome to 7th grade math! This year we will explore math in new and fun ways. Not only will we brush up on the basics, but we will apply mathematics to real-world problems and everyday situations. I am looking forward to a great year!

 

Materials Needed

3 ring binder with pockets

Paper

Pencil (all work MUST be done in pencil!)

Textbook

Calculator

 

Students should come to class with these items every day. Things such as rulers and protractors will be provided. Students will bring their binder every day. Failure to come to class without any of the above items will not be tolerated.

Homework

Homework will be given regularly, and will be turned in the next day. They will be checked for completeness, order, and legibility. This includes showing all of their work. Homework turned in as just a list of answers will NOT be accepted. Students will be responsible for turning in their homework on time. Any late homework will have points counted off. Correct answers are not as important as simply trying! Always try!!

 

Grading

Homework- 10 points for each assignment

* Math warm ups – 5 points per “warm-up”

Quizzes – 50 pts each

Tests – 100 pts each

Classroom Rules

I am looking forward to a great year! If there is anything you have questions about please feel free to contact me at leah_dennis@ecboe.org or call the school. All of my lesson plans will be on I-now, which you should be able to access from home. The best way to know what is coming is for students to listen in class and write all assignments down in their organized binder.
