Homework 10% -
Homework will be given from Monday-Thursday. Homework is given for students to practice/apply what they learn in class. Homework will be given in the Go Math! Chapter Workbooks. Each assignment will be scored using the check system.
Class Participation 15% -
Students are expected to participate by being active learners. Active learners are prepared with supplies, on time for class, and actively engaged in the lesson.
Each week students will receive a class participation grade of 0-3. One point for being on time every day, one point for having your supplies daily, and one point for being engaged in the lesson with a positive attitude.
