 Textbook and Homework Web Support: CPM Core Connections Course 2:  Students should have registered an ebook account at ebooks.cpm.org and have access to all materials online including homework "hints." See instructions to set up account on Mrs. Jacobson’s web page.                       

Grades:                                                                                                                 

*Daily Practice, Problem Solving, and Investigations 35%: Expect homework Monday through Thursday. Yes, you can and should check hints as necessary online and after attempting problems on your own, you may check any given answers on the CPM website.  Used properly, the answers let you know if you understand how to solve the problem. You MUST SHOW ALL WORK !  No work, no credit!                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Absent?  Math builds upon skills learned in previous lessons. It is very important to try to keep up. At the very least, you should watch the video lessons offered by Khan Academy or Learnzillion  and read through the lessons in every chapter prior to each assignment. Check Mrs. Jacobson’s school loop page by clicking the link to the left of the Sage webpage, try a Buddy phone list or call the school and request homework assignments.                                                                                                                                                                                                                     *Assessments 65%: Quizzes: A student can retake any quiz during, recess, or lunch for up to B- grade.  You must retake a quiz prior to the unit test! I typically post grades within one to two school days after it is taken. Bookmark Illuminateed and check it weekly! Tests: A student can retake a test for up to passing C- credit.  A test correction is mandatory for a failing grade. I typically post grades one to two days after students take them. Bookmark Illuminateed and check it weekly!                                                                                                                                                

Class Materials: You must bring a quad ruled journal, lined paper, pencils, pencil sharpeners, mini stapler, ruler, and an eraser to class each day. You will also need a compass and a protractor. I recommend refillable lead pencils and plenty of replacement lead. It is a good idea to check your backpacks and binders and replenish supplies at least every trimester, or August, November, and March.
 

Behavioral Expectations:

*Support the Learning Environment!  *Participate!!

*Respect & Courtesy! *Be Responsible for Your Own Behavior!!

 

Parent Involvement?

*Bookmark and regularly check my School Loop web page. I will post homework, project, and assessment schedule daily to weekly.  I generally return quizzes and tests within two days after I give them.  Ask to see it or check Illuminateed to see the grades! Any quiz or test correction must be taken within a week after taking it so students learn and are prepared for the next topic.

*Bookmark and check student grades at least once a week on the SVMS Illuminateed - this is particularly important as the year progresses. Students can falter at any time and they need your consistent support and direction to keep them motivated!

 Include your child in the following activities: *Estimate grocery bills *Estimate tax and tips *Estimate discounts and sale price *Let your son or daughter budget and pay for items at a store or meals at restaurants *Talk about interest for bank accounts and loans *Share house blueprints and include your child in cooking, landscaping, home renovations or a build it project *Calculate Unit Rates such as average mile/hour, miles/gallon $/item etc .*Calculate Proportions such as recipe reduction or augmentation *Measure perimeter and calculate area or volume *Play card and dice games!                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Class Donations and Needs: *Consider donating materials such as lined paper, pencils, sharpeners, cleaning wipes, Kleenex (I especially appreciate the above!!) and/or rulers, tape measures, yard sticks, compass, protractor, expo markers, pens, pencil sharpeners, colored pencils,erasers, deck of cards, dice, calculators, fun or interesting articles or web pages on math. Or, consider a tax deductible donation to my class account through the office so I can purchase these supplies as necessary.

Students learn from their mistakes! So, *Quizzes can be corrected for up to B- credit and *Tests for C-.

Please follow the directions carefully in order to receive the maximum value for the corrections.

*Study your errors and learn the concepts BEFORE you attempt the correction!

*You MUST Keep your original quiz and original work! You will staple your correction on top of it. No quiz/test, no credit!

2) Fold a piece of graph or lined paper into quarters. Four rectangles on the front and four will be on the back. 

3) Number each problem to match the problem from the quiz or test.

4) Correct only one problem per rectangle. You may use more than one rectangle for a longer problem if necessary. Give yourself plenty of room!

5) Show ALL work -completely and correctly- that demonstrates you can solve the problem.

6) Circle your new and correct answer so I can identify it immediately. Include any appropriate nouns or labels. 

7) All numbers must be clearly and neatly written!!!

8) Students take the test again during lunch and must show complete and correct reasoning or solutions to each problem.
