8th Grade Math Syllabus
The concepts and procedures of mathematics are investigated and developed by building mathematics vocabulary, solving problems, using reasoning skills, communicating knowledge and understanding how mathematical ideas are connected to other subjects and to real life.

Homework will be given everyday your child has math class. It will be checked daily for a completion grade. Homework is an important learning process and benefits your child the most, when done the day it is assigned. Homework should never take more than 15 minutes. If you do not understand the homework, please stop and try to complete it the next night. Doing homework incorrectly makes the learning process more difficult.
I will accept make-up homework for full credit during the nine weeks that it is assigned.
Make-up Work Policy:
Homework: See Homework Policy
Classwork: If you are absent or suspended, you have the same number of days that you were not in class to make-up the work. The classwork that your child will need to make-up is copying notes if any were given that day, daily bell ringer, and tests when given. It is your child's responsibility to get their work and turn it in.
If a student is out for a prolonged absence, the parent may request make-up work from Guidance. Please give me at least 24 hours’ notice prior to picking up the work.
