Q1W2 (Aug 14-18)

       Wahoo, we have each survived week one of back to school.  If you are anything like me it is hard for you believe that your baby is an 8th grader and will be off to high school before you know it. This week has a been a wonderful week. Thank you so much to everyone that has signed up for my Remind text messages for Math (see attached), hopefully you saw this on the signed syllabus or your sweet told you about it.  If you have not, please do so, as I use this as a tool of communication to keep you informed of things happening in class.  Additionally, I strive to send weekly e-mails and update my website weekly as well. Do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns via email. 

Here is a brief look ahead but please remember it is subject to change:

Monday: Irrational/Rational Numbers Review and Ordering

Tuesday: Begin project (bring scissors)

Wednesday: Work on project

Thursday: Review and complete project *Homework due (this is given each Friday and due the following Thursday)*

Friday: Quiz

Standards Covered:

8.NS.A.1 Know that numbers that are not rational are called irrational. Understand informally that every number has a decimal expansion; for rational numbers show that the decimal expansion repeats eventually or terminates, and convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually or terminates into a rational number.

8.NS.A.2 Use rational approximations of irrational numbers to compare the size of irrational numbers locating them approximately on a number line diagram.

Learning Outcomes:

I can define rational and irrational numbers

I can show that the decimal expansion of rational numbers repeats eventually or terminates.

I can convert a decimal expansion which repeats eventually or terminates into a rational number.

I can show informally that every number has a decimal expansion.

I can approximate irrational numbers as rational numbers and locate on a number line.

 

Lastly, if you have not sent in $5.00 locker fee to the HR teacher and the $10 technology fee, please do so. Please remember if you send a check, the phone number must be on the check and it must be two separate checks.

Laptops will be issued in the near future, you may pay the insurance by visiting: https://www.localevelevents.com/events/details/3357

A message from BARTLETT CITY SCHOOLS

Parents,

On Monday, August 21, 2017, the moon will pass between the earth and the sun for the first coast-to-coast total solar eclipse since 1918.  Millions of Americans in 12 states will be able to watch this solar spectacle that will turn day into night for a couple of minutes.  Tennessee is among the 12 states that have been declared to be the best place to experience this rare phenomenon.

Bartlett City Schools is planning for its students to participate in this event.  BCS has purchased and will supply solar eclipse viewing glasses for students.  Permission slips will be coming home next week. Parents of students in grades K-8 must sign and return all forms no later than Thursday, August 17, 2017.  If your student is in grades 9-12 you will only need to send a form back if you DO NOT want your child to participate.

Q1W1 (August 7-11)

 Welcome to class!  I am excited for the 17-18 school year. 
Here is a look ahead at this week:
Monday: School policy review, PBIS, and Socratic Seminar. Introduce new bell schedule (longer classes and shorter transitions in between classes)
Tuesday: New PBIS rewards explained, rotate classes to meet teachers
Wednesday: Diagnostic test
Thursday: Begin ordering and irrational/rational numbers
Friday: Rational and irrational numbers
 
Please review, sign, and return the classroom procedures and expectations.

CLASSROOM PROCEDURES AND EXPECTATIONS

  • Please follow all directions by being Respectful, Responsible, and Ready.
  • Bring materials to class (pens/pencils), etc.
  • Bring 3 ring binder for:
    1. Bell work
    2. Notes / Examples
    3. Homework
  • Laptop (once issued)
  • Calculator – Mrs. Farrell will NOT provide a calculator.

Entering the Classroom:

  • Enter quickly and quietly, sharpen pencil and be seated by tardy bell.
  • Begin working on bellwork immediately.
  • Any student who enters the room after the tardy bell or is not seated when the bell rings is considered TARDY and will earn a conduct minor.

Redo Policy:

  • All students will be given the option to redo tests and quizzes; however, FIT requirements must be followed, see FIT policy on my website.

 

Grading Policy (each 9 weeks): - total of 12 assignments each 9 weeks

  • Math uses total points.
  • Homework will be given weekly to be turned in and graded for a 13th grade each quarter.

           

Attendance / Make up Work:

  • According to Bartlett City Schools make-up policy, students will have one day for each excused absence to make up work.
  • Tests and quizzes are scheduled in advance.  If you are only absent the day prior to the scheduled test day, you will be expected to take the test.
  • It is the responsibility of each student to turn in make-up work… I will not ask for it.

Zero and Late Work Policy:

  • If a student does not complete an assignment, a zero will be assigned, please check power school regularly. All papers must have a name on them to be graded. Late work will be accepted but it is -10 points for each day late. After 5 days, a 50 can be earned if the work is completed and correct.

 

Calculators:

Students are required to have a calculator for math class. The TI-30X IIS is fine or whatever calculator was used in 7th grade.
