                  • Syllabus

                    Welcome back to school!

                     

                    You can get ahold of me through my school email: andrew.preston@district196.org. I have my email synced to my phone and will check it periodically at night. I will be in the building most days from 7:15 – 3:30. You are more than welcome to come in before or after school to get help on math. If you are coming before 7:35, make sure to get a pass.

                     

                    Class Description:

                     

                    This will be a supporting class for your 8th Grade Algebra I class. To start the year, we will be reviewing integers, fractions, and decimals. This will take up most of the first and probably the second month of school. From there, I will be supporting your other math class through reteaching and preteching.

                     

                    Daily Materials:

                     

                    You will need the following materials most days. I will have the needed materials for the day posted outside my room on the whiteboard.

                     

                    1. Math Notebook/Binder
                    2. Math Folder
                    3. Textbook
                    4. 2 Pencils (just in case one breaks)
                    5. Positive Attitude. You need to come to class ready to learn!

                     

                    Homework:

                     

                    You will have homework periodically throughout the year. During the first trimester while we are reviewing, you will have homework pretty consistently. During the rest of the year, it will be periodic. Each homework assignment will be worth 10 points and graded on correctness.

                     

                    Quizzes:

                     

                    During the first trimester, we will have quizzes once a week or once every other week. During the rest of the year, we will have quizzes periodically. Quizzes will be worth 50 points in the gradebook.

                     

                    Tests:

                     

                    During the first trimester, we will have 3 tests. During the rest of the year, we may have tests periodically.

                     

                    Things may change throughout the year. There have been discussions of different types of things that we might or might not do. Therefore, this may change to the teacher’s discretion.
