Daily work is an opportunity to practice new skills and concepts. As with all learned skills (from athletics to musical instruments) practice is essential for success. Daily practice will be reviewed the following day in class. The daily review is a key part of the learning process. Students are required to correct their own work, take notes, and ask questions!! Questions lead to understanding for all, and we want everyone to “get it”!

The text is Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Go Math; Middle School Grade 6 or Grade 7. The students will each have a "consumable" copy of the textbook in which they will be writing, taking notes, completing homework and bell work assignments, etc. The textbook will need to stay in the student's binder and come to class with the student every day- the student will be required to purchase a new copy if lost or stolen!! Go Math comes with tons of online resources for students and parents!!
I have read and understand the Math Syllabus. I will ask for support if I need it and not suffer in silence. I understand that my success depends on my effort and that taking responsibility for my learning is essential.
