Principles of Algebra Focus • Factors, multiples, prime numbers • Decimal, fraction operations • Ratios, rates, proportions • Unit rate, percent • Algebraic expressions, equations, inequalities • Integers and coordinate planes • Volume, area of 2 D and 3 D shapes/figures • Graphing, analyzing statistical data

Middle school students will continue to develop and apply focus concepts as they progress to achieve proficiency of the Common Core’s eight Standards for Mathematical Practice:

Homework • Assigned approximately 2 -4 nights per week as practice and/or reinforcement of concepts • HW assignments will be posted in class and on website • Credit is earned for attempting to complete assignments, and students are expected to come to class prepared to ask questions when they are unable to do so.

Absences Homework and assessments must be made up when absent. Students have one day for every day absent to make up homework for full credit. When absent, it is the responsibility of student to: • Check the 6 B website for class information, assignments and/or notes. • Copy class notes, complete and turn in missed assignments. • See teacher to schedule a convenient time to makeup missed assessments.

Grading Scale: Grades • 100 -90% = A • 89 -80% = B • 79 -70% = C • 69 -60% = D • 59% = F • 80% of overall grade based on assessment scores • 20% of overall grade based on practice (homework and in class assignments)
