COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The Trinity Middle School Mathematics department strives to make every Honors Algebra 1 student proficient or advanced as well as to achieve academic excellence in every aspect of education and the new Common Core Standards.  Over the past several years, our students have continued to make Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) due to the hard work of our administration as well as the teachers within the school district.  During the school year, the staff collaborates with each other in several subject areas to work as a team to develop our students.  We analyze data produced from several resources that evaluate student achievement and the specific areas of the Common Core test.

 

 

 

 

 

 NOTEBOOK:

     Each student is responsible for having a separate notebook for this class.  It is preferred that the notebook is a 1 inch, 3-ring binder.  In that notebook, students are responsible to have the following pages that will be handed out in class:

PAGE 1:  GRADE SHEET (This sheet allows parents without Internet to access the grades)

PAGE 2:  FORMULA SHEET (PSSA 7th Grade Formula Sheet)

PAGE 3:  HOMEWORK TEMPLATE

PAGE 4:  CLASS SYLLABUS

PAGE 5:  INTEGER RULES

 

 

CLASS PROCEDURES AND POLICIES:

Attendance:

Attendance is required every day at school and in every class as per the PA School Code of 1949. Students are responsible for any work missed when absent. Students normally have as many days to make up any work as they missed. STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MISSED ASSIGNMENTS AND TEST.  All Tests and Missed Assignments can be made up during Power Block.

Participation:

Participation is very important in the learning environment, and is a critical component of this course.  Participation will be a grade at the end of each 9 week period. 

You’ll be asked to pay attention to class lecture, examples, and Promethean examples. Students refusing to participate (i.e. sleeping in class) will receive a 0 for the day as well as disciplinary action.

Expectations:

I have four very simple rules for the students to follow in addition to the school’s policies and procedures.

 

Rule #1

MUST HAVE MATERIALS IN CLASS EVERY DAY! 

1.     Pencil

2.    Notebook

3.    Homework:  If you fail to turn in 3 assignments in a 9 week period, you will receive detention!

 

 

Rule #2

BE WHERE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE THERE!    (BE ON TIME!)

Rule #3

TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU EXPECT TO BE TREATED!

Rule #4

HOMEWORK MUST BE COMPLETED EVERY DAY.  ALL ASSIGNMENTS MUST SHOW WORK TO GET CREDIT.  HOMEWORK TURNED IN WITHOUT SHOWING WORK WILL RESULT IN A ZERO FOR A GRADE.

 

GRADING SCALE: 

 Points

Grade

90-100

A

80-89

B

70-79

C

60-69

LATE ASSIGNMENTS:

All assignments must be completed in a timely fashion.  Failure to do so will result in a Zero for the Assignment or Test.  Assignments are due when they are due.  Late assignments will not be accepted.

 

RESTROOM AND LOCKER PRIVILEGES:

Students are not permitted to use the restroom during class.  Students will be allowed at the end of the period.  At any time, students can have restroom and locker privileges revoked, especially if it becomes habit forming.

 

SKYWARD: 

     It is very important that each and every parent has a Skyward account so they can monitor their child's progress throughout the year.  Skyward also allows you to see Lesson Plans and Schedules for the week.

    To obtain a User ID and Password, contact your child's Guidance Officer and they will set you up an account.
