C ONSTRUCTED R ESPONSE : Constructed Response refers to the expectations regarding word problems. Students must not only solve the problem correctly, but they must also be able to explain their thinking in a short paragraph. We follow the RACES strategy, and students will practice often throughout the year. F LIPPED C LASSROOM : A Flipped Classroom refers to a classroom in which Students receive instruction at home through videos, and then practice what they learned in the classroom with teacher support. In my class, students will be asked to watch videos once or twice a week. The videos are housed on my website. However, if watching the video off-campus is a problem for any student, we will be sure s/he has the opportunity to watch it at school. N UMBER T ALKS : Number Talks are exactly what they sound like—a time for us to talk/think about numbers and how they relate to each other. Researchers are finding that many students do not have “number sense”—that is, students do not always understand how numbers work together to make patterns and/or other numbers. Once or twice a week, we will spend 10-15 minutes in math class thinking about and then discussing different ways to solve math problems. The goal here is not that every student always gets the correct answer, but that each student develops a greater understanding of the relationships numbers have with each other.
Grading: Grades will be weighted according to the following scale: o Tests/Writing assignments: 35 o Quizzes:30 o Homework:10 o Classwork: 25
