    Tutorial Hours: 8:15 – 8:40 am Tuesdays

    Conference Period: 3nd Block (12:07 – 1:40 pm) 


    1. Course Objectives 

    The students taking this course will gain the supportive skills to assist them to be successful in their high school math class and beyond.  This course will provide students with valuable information so reading, note-taking, and studying will be strongly emphasized.  The learner will develop critical and logical thinking, decision-making skills, and problem-solving skills by connecting concepts to practical applications needed to be successful.


    1. Attendance

    Attendance is important.  Math builds upon previous concepts so not being present makes it difficult to learn the concepts that follow.  In addition to being present for every class, it is extremely important that ALL students learn new concepts based on previously covered material daily.  You are responsible for any assignments or notes covered on any days you have been absent. 


    1. Classroom Rules and Procedures

    1. RESPECT your peers and yourself.  There is zero tolerance for the use of inappropriate language.  Follow the Golden Rule!  Stay on task to make efficient use of time in class and maximize learning.

    2. BE ON TIME.  A student’s tardiness is disruptive and causes unnecessary delays.  This behavior is counterproductive for yourself and your peers. 

    3. BE PREPARED.  Make sure to bring your necessary supplies every day.  Supplies are listed in “Materials” section below.

    4. NO CELL PHONES.  Cell phone use is not allowed in class.  They must be put away in a backpack.  Cell phones may not be charged during class.  Any student who has a cell phone out during a test will receive a zero on the test.  A cell phone that is out during class will be turned in to the school office.  Do not bring any electronic devices that will distract you from learning.  

    5. RAISE YOUR HAND if you need to ask a question or make a comment.  Also, please keep your comments or questions relevant to the topic at hand. 

    6. All school expectations and rules as outlined in the Student Handbook apply and will be followed in this classroom.


    1. Discipline

      1. If a learner is being non-compliant or a distraction to the class, the learner is first warned.

      2. On the second infraction, it will be documented, and their parent will be contacted.

      3. On the third infraction, the learner will be asked to leave the class, their parent will be contacted, as well as learner’s counselor and assistant principal.

      4. On the fourth infraction, the learner will be asked to leave the class and a conference will be set up between the parent, teacher, and administrator.

      5. On the fifth infraction, the learner will be asked to leave the class, the parent will be contacted, as well as the learner's assistant principal and counselor. In school suspension will be recommended.

    1. Grading Policy [JISD Policy]



    9 week grade


    Quizzes/Daily Assignments/Homework


    Midterm Exam


    1. Late work will be accepted up to three (3) days after the due date or the end of the nine weeks (whichever is sooner). When an assignment is submitted after the due date, a maximum penalty of ten (10) points per day will be deducted from the grade. In case of extenuating circumstances, it is the parent/guardian and/or student’s responsibility to inform the teacher and/or appropriate administrator so that an exception to the rule may be considered. The principal or designee will have the final authority to grant any exceptions. Afterwards, the assignment will go in as “missing”.  Missing assignments will be calculated as a zero in Frontline Parent/Student Serve.


    1. Students are expected to make up assignments and tests after absences. Students shall receive a zero for any assignment or test not made up within the allotted time unless prior approval is given by the principal or designee. Students will be given one day to make up work for each day they are absent (excused), with exceptions made due to severe or prolonged illness.


    1. A teacher will allow individual students to make-up or redo any assignments they have failed (except for late work) within three days of the date the failing grade is entered in Frontline or the end of the nine weeks, whichever is sooner. The student will be required to participate in tutorials, redo/revise the assignment, complete an alternate assignment, or any other reasonable assignment. A student in grades 9-12 shall receive no higher than a 75 if mastery is demonstrated. Re-teaching and/ or re-testing is not required when students receive major grades for products that result from an extended process, such as research papers, practical science labs, and projects.


    1. Extra credit can be offered at the teacher’s discretion. If an extra credit assignment is offered, it must be purposeful, reasonable, and applicable to the curricular objectives, and available for all students.  There are two ways teachers may offer extra credit to students: 

      • Extra Assignment- the student receives an extra assignment grade that is averaged in the Quizzes/Daily Assignments category. 

      • Points added to an Assignment- the student receives extra credit points added to an assignment grade (e.g., four extra credit points to their test grade for completing a test review).
