Welcome to 7th Grade Math
The objective of this course is to cover the TEKS (student expectations) required by the state. This is the third year for the new state implemented Math TEKS. This will prepare the student for 8th grade math.
Grading Policy: bell ringers, daily work, and homework (50%), objective tests (25%), and nine weeks test (25%). If you find that you are struggling with any concept, please make arrangements to come see me so that I may help you understand. This is important because each concept will build on the previous one.

1. Be respectful at all times.
2. Do not disrupt my teaching or the learning of others.
3. Follow all school rules and policies.
4. Be ready and prepared everyday.
2. Teacher Consequence
3. Parent notification and/or After School Detention

I believe homework is a valuable aid in helping students learn. I will give students homework for it reinforces what has been learned in class, teaches responsibility, and helps students develop positive study habits. I expect students to do their best work. Be neat because what is not legible can not be graded. Parents encourage your child to give it their best shot before asking for help. It is extremely important for you to keep absences to a minimum. If it is necessary for you to miss class, make sure to bring a note to get an admit slip. Make-up work is your child’s responsibility. You will be given the number of days you are absent to complete your work. Unexcused absences can result in a zero for assignments missed. Detention will be assigned if your child falls behind. Your child will receive a zero until work is received. I feel that parents are the key to making homework a positive experience for their child. Therefore, I ask parents to make homework a priority. I will be available if you need help before school and/or after school.
With education becoming vital to being successful in life, remember what you learn this year will benefit you for the rest of your life. I am looking forward to a wonderful year.
