8th Grade Math ~ Mrs. Fortenbacher
I am so excited to be your teacher and am looking forward to a terrific school year. We will be learning many new concepts and skills, so get ready for some serious fun! This course will prove to be challenging but rewarding as we prepare for high school level math courses. We are using the Holt McDougal textbook as a foundation with daily learning targets. Our major strands include:
The Number System
Expressions and Equations
Functions
Geometry
Statistics and Probability
This year in math we will have a classroom set of textbooks. Our textbook is available online at http://my.hrw.com (no www); along with many cool support tools such as homework help, additional examples and video vignettes. Students who do not have internet access may check a book out from our library like any other book.
What a day in math class may look like
We will start each day with recognizing and writing the days learning target(s) and completing bell-work problems on a weekly tracking sheet.
We will review the previous days lesson and/or homework.
We quickly check the bell-work then begin the daily lesson by a variety of methods (direct instruction, power point presentation, video examples, or student inquiry).
Frequently there will be smaller formative assessments (exit slips, student feedback, and group activities) with larger summative assessments (test and quizzes) that will measure progress in meeting the current learning targets.
Participation : Assignments & Homework (20% of your grade)
Complete mathematical thought (aka showing your work and reasoning) will be stressed throughout the year. To receive full credit (2 stamps) on any assigned work, you must complete the work legibly and in pencil by the due date.
Late work will be accepted up until the unit assessment. Work turned in late may receive reduced credit (1 stamp) and must be turned in with the appropriate weekly bell-work sheet.
You can expect homework assignments daily. Participation in this practice is important in order to ensure your success. Homework is graded based on completion and effortit is completely acceptable to make mistakes. THIS IS HOW WE LEARN!!!
You will also be required to keep a weekly bell-work sheet (collected each week). You will collect homework stamps on your bell-work sheet as well as complete the daily warm up. DO NOT LOSE THIS SHEET! This is how your participation points are tracked.
*Note: ALL problems assigned in the textbook will be done and kept in notebooks as we work towards meeting our learning targets. There will be opportunities to work cooperatively in teams and individually throughout the school year.
Homework and warm ups will be stamped almost daily on the students weekly bell-work sheet. Points are assigned as followed for a possible three points per day:
Homework: 2 pts possible
2 stamps = completed on time homework with work shown.
1 stamp = late or incomplete work
0 stamps = work missing
Absences: If you are absent, it is your responsibility to either check another students bell-work sheet, e-mail me for work you have missed, or check with me when you return about notes and assignments. You can find handouts in the Math 8 file box. All absent work can be completed for full credit.
Bell-work: 1 pt possible
1 stamp = completed warm up
0 stamps = incomplete warm up
Quizzes & Tests: (80% of your grade)
*Quizzes and Tests are worth a combined 80% of your grade. (Quizzes = 30%, Tests = 50%)
*Quizzes will be given at least twice throughout a unit. Students may edit any quiz for up to credit on each problem missed. Work must be shown as proof that the student understands the concepts.
*Tests will be given at the end of each unit. Students with scores of 80% or better may edit any test for up to credit on each problem missed. Students with scores of less than 80% may edit problems missed and then retake the test for up to 80% credit or the original score plus half the credit, whichever score is higher..
CLASS EXPECTATIONS
My responsibility is to teach mathematics to everyone in class; therefore to insure a positive learning environment I ask that each of you exhibit appropriate behavior at all times and follow the school-wide PANTHER EXPECTATIONS.
As PANTHERS we are:
Responsible
On Time
Always Prepared
Respectful
During the first days of school we will clarify and agree as a class on how we will honor these expectations throughout the year.
It is also important that we respect the rights of each individual to participate and learn while in the classroom. Each student is responsible for his/her own behavior. Inappropriate behavior has consequences, which are covered in the student handbook.
Supplies:
Please bring the suggested materials to class DAILY-
1} Three-ringed binder (1.5 - 2) with notebook paper
2} Pencils and erasers
3} Colored pens (blue, black and red; highlighters)
4} Scientific Calculator (TI-30 or equivalent. Also, phone use as a calculator is acceptable)
Grading:
Grading will be based upon 80% Assessments (tests & quizzes) and
20% Participation (bell work, class work, and homework). Below is our grading scale~
94-100 A 77-79 C+
90-93 A- 74-76 C
87-89 B+ 70-73 C-
84-86 B 67-69 D+
80-83 B- 60-66 D
<60% = F
Progress reports will be calculated for each mid-quarter, quarter and semester; available on Skyward. I typically update Skyward at least every week to two weeks.
Homework Help:
IMPORTANT: Additional help for concepts can be found at: http://my.hrw.com (no www).
Kahn Academy is another awesome website to check out: www.khanacademy.org
*Homework HELP during Connection Time or before/after school with Mrs. Fortenbacher by appointment. Please let me know if you need some help!!
Other Procedures:
SHARPENING PENCILS: When I am not instructing, you may take the shortest route to the sharpener, sharpen your pencil and then quickly return to your seat.
IF YOU FORGOT SOMETHING Think of a solution! (
Pencil/Pen: BEFORE CLASS, quietly find one, borrow from a classmate, or trade something of value with me or a classmate until the end of class.
Binder/Notebook: You can use a separate sheet of paper and follow along with the class. Then put it into the appropriate section of your binder later.
BATHROOM: Use the restroom during passing time. You may ask me at an appropriate time if there is an emergency. Be sure to take your individual BR pass with you and have me sign your planner!
AT THE END OF CLASS: You need to clean your area, put all materials away, and make sure you have your homework written on your bell-work sheet.
Parents, if you have any questions or concerns regarding my expectations, procedures, child's grade or behavior, feel free to call or e-mail me and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
