    Homework

    Students in both Eighth grade math and Compacted Math Year 2 usually receive homework Monday through Thursday evenings. This work is aligned with what we are learning in class and content they will be responsible for on assessments.  It is an opportunity to learn and apply skills, to be able to make mistakes and learn from them prior to be being assessed.  It is intended to help your student be successful.

    Homework should not be an exercise in stress or cause anxiety.  If your student reaches the day's time limit of 30 minutes and is not close to finishing, they should stop and have an adult sign the work as proof they have spent the required time on math.  They will not be marked down and the work not being completed will not count against them.

    I am available for help by appointment and during homeroom.
