Things you have to
do every month:
1. Notes on every sections assigned for the month
(5% of the grade).
2. Textbook work (15%
of the grade). You must
show your work for every problem.
3. Take a test (75%
of the grade) during the last
week of the school month.
4. 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.
HOW TO TURN IN MONTHLY WORK:
directions on the back of the cover sheet on how to turn in the
monthly work. Follow those directions.
3. THE WEEKLY CLASS:
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
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. Go to my main webpage and you'll see
the link for the days and times for math help.
5. THE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)
of questions are answered there,
even questions you didn’t know you will have. Go to my main
webpage and you'll see the link for the FAQ page.
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. Go to my main webpage and
you'll see the link for the Extra Credit page.
