Common Core Math 7

 The DROPBOX FOLDER link is:
Go to that link to find these things:
  • Semester syllabus
  • Monthly cover sheet, listing assigned work (monthly pacing guide on page 2 of cover sheet).
  • Instructional teacher handouts as available
  • Extra credit documents (for directions on what to do, however, go to this link.
  • Detailed directions for the monthly notes assignment.



Things you have to do every month:

1.   Notes on every sections assigned for the month (5% of the grade).
Textbook work (15% of the grade). You must show your work for every problem. 
Take a test (75% of the grade) during the last week of the school month.
Do student-corrections of any incorrect questions from the test, after the teacher grades it. (5% of the grade).


Things you should know:

1.  PACING GUIDE: There is a pacing guide on the back on the monthly cover sheet. FOLLOW IT. Stay within one or two days of it. If you don’t, you will end up behind at the end of the month, without time to study and practice enough to do well on the test.  
2.  HOW TO TURN IN MONTHLY WORK: There are directions on the back of the cover sheet on how to turn in the monthly work. Follow those directions.
3.  THE WEEKLY CLASS: you should come to the weekly class (the "study group"). It’s true that the class is officially “optional,” but only if a PARENT says it’s OK to skip it (students don’t decide themselves that they don’t need to go to class). Note that this is the one chance each week to actually get direct, helpful math instruction from your teacher—and there are sometimes tips and hints that can be really helpful, especially when taking the test.  For the schedule of classes, go to the the school's study group schedule. 
4.   MATH HELP: I (Mr. Greenwood) have some specific times to help students with math questions. Those times are open for any of my students. Note that those are the ONLY times when I am available for math help. For the days and times, click here. 
5.  THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ) webpage. Lots of questions are answered there, even questions you didn’t know you will have.  Click here
6. EXTRA CREDIT: There is a monthly extra credit assignment, but you must follow the directions and turn it in on time. If you don’t follow the directions or don't turn it in on time, you just simply don’t get the points for doing the extra credit. Click here
7. READ MY EMAILS: I will send an email at least once a month showing the overall grade so far....usually twice a month.  Sometimes I send emails with other information.  Please read them carefully and follow what they say.
