*Every student will succeed this year by working well independently, with fellow classmates, and with the teacher. It will benefit your child to review what he/she did in class today at home. Being able to explain the math to someone is a sign that he/she is learning.
*Students will need a binder/folder to keep notes, classwork, and homework in. They will also need paper, pencils, and an agenda/planner. Your child may want to have colored pencils, a red pen, a highlighter, graph paper. We will use these supplies in class, but your child may borrow from me. Please remember to replenish the supplies at least once a nine week grading period.
*The textbook is available online. You should be able to get your etextbook through your portal like you did last year. You have access to Ditgits 8th grade and to Algebra. We will be working from both books from time to time. You may want to use the other book for more practice or to see a lesson presented in a different way.
*When you are absent from class, remember to check the binder in my room to find work that needs to be completed. If you miss a test or a class work assignment that cannot leave my room, you will need to arrange to come to my room before school to complete the missing assignment. Students will have assignments online. If you are absent from school, please remember to check for online assignments.
*You need to remember to work in Algebra Nation. You may want to spend at least 15 minutes on this when you are not assigned homework.
