Your math grade will be calculated from practice, quizzes and test scores. There will be math homework every night and this does include Friday night. The homework assignment will not be lengthy so it is important to try every problem to get practice in all applications of the lesson. The homework will be posted on the calendar on Monday for that week’s homework assignments.
The aleks program is designed to measure mastery of the math standards for 6th grade. Each child is required to master 5 topics each week. This will be recorded as a homework grade each week. A dress down pass will be given to all students who make each nine weeks goal. (1st nine weeks 20% completed, 2nd nine weeks 40% completed, 3rd nine weeks 60% completed and 4th nine weeks 80% completed) This assignment should take between 30-45 minutes to complete and can be done anytime from Monday to Sunday at home or after school in the computer lab. www.aleks.com
Math tutoring will be Wednesday's from 3:00-3:30 in Mrs. Jacobson's classroom. Please check into with your aftercare teacher if you are in aftercare on Wednesday and then come immediately to my room at 3:00. I will walk you to the front of the school for pick up after tutoring.
