Mrs. Cheatham's Math 7 and Math 8 Classes
*School Attendance is a must! Students absent should be proactive to make-up work immediately. Students should remain proactive in seeing that they continue to work through their assignments during personal challenges. Our Weekly Checklist and Daily Lessons on Google Classroom are designed to help kids stay caught up!
*Google Classroom is an integral part of our class. Lesson Videos are loaded each day by the end of the school day. This is great for our absent students and students who need to see the lesson another time :)
*Homework is not officially checked for a grade in the gradebook. Instead, students are given the opportunity to ask questions about their homework before a quick check (ticket, quick quiz, etc.) is administered. Note: Homework answers are provided to the students the day the homework is assigned so that they may check their answers at home ahead of time.
*Quizzes are given throughout a given unit. They serve as a "snapshot" of a few skills for a given unit.
*At the end of each unit, two tests are given. If a student scores an 85+ on the first test, the student may take two class days "off" or retest for an even higher score. If a student scores below an 85 on the first test, the student will test again after a built-in review day where we go over the first test together. The higher of the two scores prevails.
*Powerschool (online gradebook) is updated by Wednesday afternoon for the previous week's work.
*Morning Tutoring is available every morning at 7:15am. Appointments must be made by 7:00am for a given day.
*After-School Tutoring is available until 3:45 by appointment only Monday-Thursday.
