Tuesday, May 23rd is the date for our SOL Math test.  Please make sure that your child is reviewing skills nightly.  Make sure that the day we test, they are well rested, had breakfast, and ready to go.  Please be aware if your child is still struggling.  Keep a check on HAC.  All we are doing at this point is reviewing.

Friday March 24th is our 3rd and final benchmark.  The benchmark will cover many problems from 6.10, 6.18, 6.3, 6.20, 6.11, 6.12, and 6.13 since these are the skills covered since the 2nd benchmark.  They will also have questions from any of the previously tested strands (1st and 2nd nine weeks) so students need to be ready for all of it.  They have a review packet that they have been working on since Tuesday.  Please make sure that they are only doing the assigned problems.

***If your student is not at a 70% mastery currently, they must make a 70 or higher on this benchmark.***

Things to Remember in Math for 2016-2017

  • Students need to know their multiplication facts.  It is the basis for so many skills in middle school.
  • Fractions, Decimals, and Percents are one of the most difficult standards to learn.
  • Students must come to class prepared daily with all supplies.
  • There will be daily bell ringers with bi-weekly quizzes once we are up and running.
  • Practice, practice, practice-homework is essential.
  • Benchmarks are cumulative-70% is considered mastery.
  • Students will receive review booklets each nine weeks from their teacher.  This will help with Benchmarks.  The teacher will assign what is to be completed in these booklets.
  • Study Island will be used at home and in school to practice skills.
