WELCOME TO CURRICULUM NIGHT! Mr. Jason Eres Room 309 8 th Grade Math Linear Algebra Algebra firstname.lastname@example.org
A LITTLE ABOUT ME... Born and raised in Elk Grove, CA Graduated from ASU with my Bachelors in Secondary Education: Math Interests and hobbies include: Watching and coaching sports, going to the movies, and technology.
Classroom Norms All students are expected to be in their seat and ready to learn by the time the bell rings. Students must have all of their supplies with them every day Discipline Refocus warning Timeout in ISI room (In School Intervention) Parent contact/meeting Office referral
Tardy Policy Please note there is a strict tardy policy for students at Aprende Make every effort to get your students to school on time First tardy is a warning Second tardy is a parent letter Third tardy is an After School Detention Be prepared for continued detentions and conduct referrals in the event of continued tardies State law requires that ALL students attend school
Student Behavior We expect students to be in class and ready to learn with the appropriate classroom behaviors If student behavior is a disruption to the learning environment: Student will receive a verbal or non-verbal (card) warning If the behavior continues, student will be moved to the time out seat in the classroom If the student is still unable to control their behavior, they will be sent out to the ISI (In School Intervention) room on campus
Warm-ups/Bellwork Grade and Review Homework Introduction to the topic for the day (typically a short video, discussion, or activity) Note taking and guided practice Begin homework (usually 10 mins in class)
1. All work must be completed in pencil, no erasable pen 2. Rewrite the original problem 3. Show all work, every step, going down the paper (vertically) 4. Skip a space between problems 5. Leave a space to work out a problem if you are not sure how to do it, and ask for help
Mathematics Tutoring will be offered both before school and after school. (Schedule still pending) My website will be updated every Friday with what we will be studying the following week.
High School Mid-Term = December 15 th High School Final = May 13 th Your child MUST be here on these dates to take these tests. There are no make-ups. In order to receive high school credit for this class, they need to earn a 70% or higher on BOTH tests. They need to earn 80% or higher to be placed in Honors Geometry next year.
Algebra Course Outline 1 st Quarter: Quantities and Relationships Graphs, Equations, and Inequalities Linear Functions Sequences 2 nd Quarter: Exponential Functions Systems of Equations Systems of Inequalities
Algebra Course Outline 3 rd Quarter: Analyzing Data Sets for One Variable Correlation and Residuals Analyzing Data Sets for Two Categorical Variables Introduction to Quadratic Functions 4 th Quarter: Polynomials and Quadratics Solving Quadratic Equations and Inequalities Real Number Systems Functions and Inverses Mathematical Modeling
Algebra Resource Information New Carnegie Textbooks Consumables Student Centered learning Inquiry Based and Direct Instruction Mix Mathia Carnegie’s Online self paced program that follows our curriculum 1 day per week in class (every Thursday) 1 Alab’s per week minimum (every Friday) Students must log a set amount of minutes per week working in program and make check-in progress due dates Some of the minutes will need to be completed at home as ongoing homework, during additional Alab times, or during tutoring afterschool Mathia Minute Logs and Progress Check-ins will be a part of the overall class grade
Homework/Class work10% Tests/Quizzes90% Your child can expect about 30 minutes of homework every day in math class. Most days students will have roughly 10 minutes to start homework in class Please regularly check with your child regarding their math homework. Students are responsible for recording their assignments each day in their agendas. All homework will also be listed on my class website.
