Welcome to Mrs. Massengale’s mathematics class.  To achieve their highest ability, students will need to be motivated, interested, attentive, and present in class as much as possible.  It will be the student’s responsibility to keep up with assignments, grades, and organization of materials.  The following is a brief summary of the policies and procedures that students will be expected to follow in class.

8th grade text  @kgegea to 81010

7th grade text @c3e8ek to 81010

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

Homework Help

You can use the online textbook which includes video tutorials and homework guidance.   To access the online textbook your child must enter through the Montgomery Junior High website.  There are directions for this and your child's individual username and password in your child's math journal. 

Wish List!!

Baggies (any sort), paper towels, Kleenex, pencils, handheld sharpeners, expo markers and wet wipes.

Students are not required to buy a calculator.  They will have a calculator to use each day in class.  The class calculators can not go home with the students.  If your child wishes to purchase one, we use the TI-nspire CX.
