Math Homework ResourcesDarkBlue_12.png

Many parents want to know how to best help their student at home. The number one best help is to simply do your best to help your students understand what they need to do. The packets that are sent home contain the day's lesson on them with examples. If you get stuck, simply read over the lesson and try to figure out what is needed.
I encourage all students to keep each lesson in a safe place so that they will have access to ALL the lessons as needed. Each problem has a small number below in parenthesis- this number indicated the lesson that type of problem was taught in.
Tests are given after each five lessons starting with lesson number ten. So tests are given approximately weekly.
In class, students take a daily quiz worth 10 points. These questions come directly from the homework the night before. If your student is doing their classroom assignments, they should do very well on these quizzes. If you notice that scores are low, then check with your student to ensure they are getting the daily assignments done.
