Welcome parents & Students to CCSS math 8th, here are some things you need to be aware of for this year to be a successful one.

### Math 8mrs. Colville's Math Classes

**COURSE CONTENT:** We will be covering Number Properties and Number System, Expressions and Equations, Linear Equations and Linear Inequalities, Graphing Linear and Non-Linear Equations, Systems of Linear Equations, Functions, Geometry and The Pythagorean Theorem, as well as Statistics and Probability.

**GRADING POLICY:**

Student’s grades will be based on:

- Homework 30% of overall average
- Classwork/Participation 20% of overall average
- Tests 30% of overall average
- Quizzes 20% of overall average

**PROGRESS REPORTS:**Safari 10.1 2 download for mac.

Students and parents can access grades online. I will be updating them periodically.

**MATERIALS:**

Textbook, **(please bring it daily)**, school binder with purple math notebook, several pencils, erasers, pencil sharpener and a folder for handouts and graded work.

**HOMEWORK:**

Homework will be assigned daily. Some days we will have time to start and finish in class. If a student misses an assignment due to an excused absence, he/she is responsible for the work missed. Assignments missed due to unexcused absences will receive a zero. Homework will not be accepted late, and make up work will not be given in its place. If students are participating in a school activity that prevents them from attending class are responsible for making sure their assignment are turned in on time.

**EVALUATION AND TESTING:**

There will be chapter/Unit tests and short checking for understanding quizzes. If you are absent on a test/quiz day, you must make it up. This must be done upon your return from your absence. Failure to do so will result in a zero for that test.

**BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS:**

### Math 8mrs. Colville's Math Class 6

In addition to the school discipline plan, class rules are designed to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for all students. Students are expected to follow directions given by the teacher, to be active learners, and to participate fully in all class activities.

**STUDENTS RIGHTS AND RESPONSABILITIES:**

As a student you have the right to…

- Be treated with courtesy and respect.
- Learn with minimum of disruptions.
- Make mistakes.
- Not understand the material initially.
- Ask questions.

**Need and receive extra help.**

**As a student you are expected to abide by the following:**

- Attend class regularly and on time
- Come to class prepared; bringing all required materials to class each day.
- Use positive, polite speech to teachers and other students
*(please, thank you, etc.)* - Follow directions the first time they are given.
- Respect others.
- Remember that I will dismiss you, not the bell or the clock.

**Consequences for not following classroom expectations:**

Please refer to the school rules in your planner.

Excessive disruptions will require a parent/teacher and administrator meeting.

**BEFORE/AFTER SCHOOL AND OTHER ASSISTANCE:**
