COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND INFORMATION:

Primary content within the 7th grade curriculum contains number system, rates and ratios, algebraic expressions and equations, statistics and probability, and geometric understanding.  Students will develop an understanding of and applying proportional relationships, develop understanding of operations with rational numbers and working with expressions and linear equations, solving problems involving scale drawings and informal geometric constructions, working with two and three-dimensional shapes to solve problems involving area, surface area, and volume, and drawing inferences about populations based on samples. 

Online access of the class textbook will be given as chrome books are issued.  A workbook will also be issued for the student to remove chapter pages currently being studied for classwork, homework, and studying purposes. 

Students are expected to bring their issued chrome book, pencil, and paper to class every day.  Students also need to maintain a minimum of one section of a binder, folder, or composition notebook for class.

Make Up Policy

After an absence, it is the responsibility of the student and or parent/guardian to request any make-up work and the student responsibility to complete it within one week.  If not made up in the that time frame, the assignment will be considered a 0 (zero).

 

Completed make-up work, handed in on time, will receive full credit.

 

Students can retake a quiz or exam if their scores fall below 70%.  The student and/or parent/guardian must request this make up with Ms. Fernandes, AND the make up must be scheduled to be taken at a time other than class time.  BE careful not to get behind.  Our goal is mastery of the math information, BUT the students must keep up with the new information.
