Materials

The following materials will be expected from each student and brought to class every day.

  • Composition book or spiral
  • Section in a binder to hold math quizzes and tests
  • Pencils
  • Checking pens (any color)

Assignments

In general, there will be an assignment given each day.  Assignments not completed in class will become homework.  Ample time and opportunity will be given to work in class. 

Make Up Work

It is the student’s responsibility to check the makeup folder in the classroom and pick up any assignments missed due to an absence.  If a student knows in advance that he/she will be out, it is asked that they retrieve the assignments before the absence.  It is very important to understand that math builds on itself.  If a student is absent, it is VERY important for them to make sure they understand the material missed.  This process will become more beneficial as the year progresses. If a student is absent the day of a test, he/she will need to arrange a time to make it up promptly upon returning to school. All test will be taken in the classroom.

Extra Help/Tutorials

If a student is having difficulty with the material, they are strongly urged to seek help.  They are encouraged to ask questions before, during, or after class.  If further assistance is needed, I am available on Monday and Thursday from 2:45-3:30.  The student must have their own transportation home.

*** If I am not available for tutorials, your student should report to another math teacher for help****

Grades

Major grades, quizzes, and daily grades will make up a student’s six week average:

65% Major Grades

10% Daily Grades

25% Quiz Grades

My name is Eric Vinikoff and I will be teaching 8th Grade Math this year.  I'll be starting my 20th year as a teacher and I am looking forward to a great year at MJH.  I am married to my wife Lynsey and we have twin boys, Connor and Cole who are 12 years old.

 

I attended Texas A&M University and received my B.S. in Kinesiology. I coached at Montgomery for 10 years and it was one of the most rewarding jobs I've ever had. I also served in the United States Air Force and I am very honored to have served my country. Please let me know if I can help in anyway.
