If you find your son/daughter is having trouble with homework…
- Parents and students can access the Illustrative materials, including the workbook and parent resources at https://im.openupresources.org.
- Have your son/daughter read over the lesson summary. Each lesson has a summary that summarizes what was learned that day.
- Have your son/daughter “try” their best by attempting to solve all problems. The next day, encourage your son/daughter to ask questions about homework. I set aside a few minutes each day to go over requested homework problems.
- Please encourage your son/daughter to do their homework every night. Homework and daily class work is considered a ‘no count’ because students have the opportunity to work together and get help from adults. However, homework completion is necessary for class and test success. Completion is recorded in Skyward and homework is given daily.
If your son/daughter is absent…
There are high expectations for attendance, work ethic, and behavior in this class. Regular attendance is required; math is a linear subject and concepts will continue to build on each other. Students are responsible for all missed work.
- Visit TMS’s webpage, click ‘teachers’ and then ‘Santee’. My webpage provides an up to date list of homework assignments.
- Have your son/daughter get missed Fire-ups from me.
- Encourage your son/daughter to find a friend that will allow them to borrow class notes to write into their book.
- Last, they need to check in absent work (homework and fire-ups) with me during OPPs so that I can score the assignments.
- Students are expected to stay in during OPPs until all work is completed from all classes.
How do I view my son/daughter’s grades…
If you do not have Skyward access to view your son/daughter’s grades, please contact Sally Riddle and she will get you connected. Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
- Formative Assessments (Fire-ups and quizzes) – 10%
- Summative Assessments (mid-unit assessments and end of the unit assessments) – 90%
- Homework/Daily Work – 0% (Homework and daily class work is considered a ‘no count’ because students have the opportunity to work together and get help from adults. However, homework completion is necessary for class and test success. Completion is recorded in Skyward and homework is given daily.)
What are Fire-ups?
Fire-ups are generally 1 -2 problems and students get about 5-10 minutes to complete this. Please remind your son/daughter to take their time and do their best on these. If they understood the lesson from the previous day, these Fire-ups should not be challenging.
How can I help my son/daughter be prepared for upcoming assessments?
I will always send parents an email before an assessment. In addition, we spend time in class the day before each assessment reviewing the concepts that will be on the assessment. Please encourage or help your son/daughter to study using their review packet that we completed in class together. It may also be helpful to review lesson summaries, daily class work/notes, fire-ups and homework problems from the unit.
What if my son/daughter wants to re-take an assessment?
Traditional re-takes will not be provided, however, standards will be spiraled into future unit assessments to provide students the opportunity to demonstrate mastery of past standards. For example, the students just completed the mid-unit assessment, which was their first opportunity to demonstrate mastery on Area (Unit 1). We have 6-7 more lessons left in Area and Surface Area (Unit 1) and then we are taking the end of the unit assessment. This will be a second opportunity for your son/daughter to show mastery in Area and Surface Area. In addition, at the end of the next unit, Ratios, we will add 3-5 questions from Unit 1. This will be the third opportunity to show mastery in Area and Surface Area.
My contact information is listed below. It is easiest to contact me by email (and you will get the quickest reply).
Thank you for your support!
