Phone Number: 310 842-4200 x3335 Math/Science or Business Algebra → Geometry → Algebra II → Trigonometry → AP Calculus AB Algebra → Geometry → Algebra II → Finite → AP Statistics Number System Ratios and Proportional Relationships Expressions and Equations Geometry Functions Systems of Equations Proportional Relationships, Lines, and Linear Equations Students will be Active Learners by: •Asking Questions •Monitoring there own progress •Making a plan for learning •Applying math to real life •Being able to justify their answers and communicate mathematical ideas •Using resources such as textbooks, media, teacher produced worksheets and manipulatives Students will be Active Learners by: •By working as: •Individuals •Pairs/Partners •Groups •Large Groups (class) One-inch 3 Ring Binder ( JUST FOR MATH ) Also, 5 dividers so students can stay organized Pencil (mechanical preferred) and Pen (grading only) for every class day I supply lead for all students. (0.5, 0.7, 0.9) Comp Book (I purchased) for students must be in class everyday Learning Logs are in the back of the room and are to be kept in class… in fear they will never come back A list of all of the learning targets for the unit. ◦ I can” statements Students record scores from Quick Checks and Exit Slips on their Learning Target Logs ◦ Quick Checks and Exit Slips are like “Quizzes” Students will then make an “Action Plan” that will increase knowledge to mastery. Action Plans are made up of many things it is up to the student to decide what will help the student get to mastery of the content. ◦ Action Plans can include: Teacher made worksheets Internet website/App help Tutoring Annotated Notes (Flash cards, bubble maps, etc) Other… Whatever the student thinks will help them achieve mastery This helps students, teacher, and parents to know which of the learning targets a student has mastered and which ones he/she needs to practice. Students should write down their plan in their time tracker to insure parents are aware of the action plan. Students’ grade will be based on scores received on unit assessments. Homework will count towards Work Habits grade. Quick Checks and exit slips will be graded as follows (usually the student grades their own quick check): Level Description 4 Student demonstrates a solid understanding of the concept, no mistakes have been made 3 Student demonstrates a good understanding of the concept, but is making minor mistakes 2 Student demonstrates a basic understanding of the concept and needs more practice and/or additional instruction from a knowledgeable other 1 Student demonstrates a limited understanding of the concept and needs more practice and intensive instruction from the teacher Homework assignments will be posted daily on the CCMS homework website. http://ccms.ccusd.org Mondays 2:20 – 3:00 Tuesdays 2:20 – 3:00 Thursdays 2:20 – 3:00 Unless there are meetings or emergencies. Check in with your student about Action Plans encourage them to review material that they do not have a strong understanding in. Look at Quick Checks to see what needs to be completed. Check math notebook; ask what your child is learning Encourage your child to have a positive attitude about math Help your child to see how math is used in everyday life Communicate if there is problem Students should only be working on homework that has already been taught in class. However, they still sometimes get stuck. Help them to be responsible for their own learning. Feel free to help and guide!
