I CAN LEARN All problems on all tests, quizzes, and homework should be written legibly, in order and numbered. All that you might be tempted to call “scratch work” is important in this class. It shows you are working the problems yourself. Duh…may I scratch my head? 1) Use a loose leaf binder. NO SPIRAL TYPES! 2) Have plenty of notebook paper and pencil. 3) Your lesson order sheet is first. 4) Your syllabus is next. 5) Bring your notebook every day. 6) Keep all papers in order. 3-ring binder She did so well on DT that she gets to skip 3 lessons. On left correctly label. On right put date. Show work on all problems that you can’t do in your head. Number your problems. Do all work orderly. You may begin the diagnostic (DT #1) after this. Write # of lessons autofilled. Note: If lessons are autofilled, you should have work shown on diagnostic test (DT), or you may be required to do “autofilled” lessons anyway. Number the lesson (Pretest PT) Date on top right (failed to do) Show work on problems Number problems Did not pass pretest, so continue on Lesson 026. Take notes on video lesson (LP) Show work on IP orderly, and numbered. IP is 10% of grade. You may need to show more work and use more paper than this IP = person did. NEED DATE Independent Practice LP = Lesson Presentation notes Top left put lesson # & Quiz (Q) Top right put date Show all work, number your problems and be orderly Quiz work is used for teacher to see your errors in case you don’t get 80%. You cannot get help when taking a quiz or any other kind of test, but you may use notebook during a quiz. Top left, put new lesson number & label PT Top right, the date. Pretest work. Missing one puts you on the video. Take notes. Do IP. Show work. Do quiz. Show work. New lesson # top left Date at top right. Pretest. This person made 100 on pretest, so she gets to skip the rest of the lesson with automatic 100 on IP and Quiz. Pretests must be taken without help from any source. All work must be shown in notebook! Note: If you make 100, but have no work shown, you may be required to work the entire lesson following this pretest. Take clean sheets of paper from notebook. Turn in notebook. If your instructor is not present, the monitor present must have your notebook and be aware that you are taking test. On paper put module #, CT # and date. Number your problems and show your work. Get notebook after you take the test. You must re-take it if you made less than 70%. You may skip writing problems down only if you can do them in your head. Calculator use is limited. See next slide. Fundamental Math Students may not use calculators on the first two modules. Others may use the calculators under “tools” or bring your own hand-held calculator. Phones or ipads may never be used for calculating in this class. The online “tools” calculator will not be available to Fundamental Math students until all such students have passed all of Modules 1 and 2, so bring your own hand-held calculator if you are ahead of others and finished the first two modules. Developing an orderly notebook and keeping accurate records of your work is an important life skill, but it also gives credence to your efforts in this class. Ten percent of your grade is the notebook. Your teacher will be checking to see that each lesson in each module is accounted for and this check will be given a grade each time you take a cumulative test. Much educational research lately has confirmed the value of keeping a good notebook. Student success in this course will depend on learning how to keep a notebook and using it. MAY YOU HAVE GREAT SUCCESS IN THIS CLASS.
