Course Description:  Math Matters is an exploratory course with the intention to bring math alive for our students in the 6th, 7th and 8th grades.  The couse involves hands-on, interactive, real-world and technology-based activities that will focus on South Carolina Academic State Standards.  Students' course work will be individially designed to focus on their specific needs based on standardized test scores, classroom performance, and teacher obervations, as well as an overall daily focus on number facts and an understaning and application of word problems.

This will be a fast-paced learning environment with a limited class size.  My teaching structure allows the freedom to choose what activity he/she would engage in, and encourages independent thinking, planning and time management.  Classroom assessments will be based on the students' progress and completion of activites.

Major Curriculum Topics:  South Carolina (Mathematics) State Standards grade 6, 7 and 8

Assessments/Grading:  All classroom assessments will correlate to the students' progress and completion of the activities based on his/her individual plan.  Grades will be given for classroom activities, computer assgnments, and in-class projects.

Standards based practice resources will be provided for students to continue to build their skills at home, but will not be assinged as homework.

Grades will be updated periodically and parents are invited to monitor student progress though Parent Portal or by contacting me via email, or through a phone call or scheduling a conference.
