Fundamentals Of Mathematics (Period 3)

Course Description

The course is designed to help students who struggle in math to gain the skills they need to be successful in 8th grade and beyond. We use the same course material as Mathematics.
All assignments are due the day after they are assigned. We will grade them together and turn them in after they have been corrected.

Sorry for letting this website fall behind. I was swamped with a few items that took me a while to get completed. I should now be able to keep this page up to date with what we are doing in class. Thanks for your patience!

Monopoly Unit

Starting the week of November 13 most classes will begin my Monopoly Unit. In this unit we will divide into teams and play Monopoly as a class. The math involved is highlighted and is how each student will be scored. It is a fun unit and will not have daily homework. We will wrap up the unit and turn in packets to be graded on November 20th 

Making it count!

Homework is preparation for the test. It is where you try to see if you can do it and then ask questions to clarify any confusion. If you don't do your homework, you never know what questions or confusions you might have until the test and then it's too late to ask. 

Modifications for tests

Since our goal is to get struggling students back up to grade level, I have students work at reviewing for tests one more day. This gives them more time to learn and ask questions about the material. I also try to get around to each student to get a general idea on how they feel in relation to how ready they are for the test. 
TEST Thursday Sept 14th


Tests are a time for students to show what they can do all by themselves. They cannot be retaken or corrected, however, WE DO study for them a lot. I also make it one of my personal goals to teach students HOW to study for tests. We use index cards and practice problems and making notes as a way to really LEARN a topic. 

Back to the Grind!

We are off to a GREAT start of the school year! I am figuring out this new system as I go. When it works, it's GREAT! All classes will have their first chapter tests next week. We will have reviews and study materials. 
I am working on getting Google Classroom set up, but when Infinite Campus is down, I can't email the links and that's the delay. I will only post on Google Classroom when necessary. I will have links to this page and IXL log in  page.
