17Middle School Math and Higher Order ThinkingAs a science of abstract objects, mathematics relies on logic rather than on memorization and observation.Students are now moving from concrete to abstract thinking. 2 + 3 = 5 to 2a + 3b = xThey will move beyond memorizing facts and processes.Involves:AnalyzingSeeing complex patterns Applying known processes to new situationsLearning a new language

HomeworkHomework Grade Includes:Homework assignments checked daily, stamp given on assignment sheetAssignment Sheet Weekly gradeNotes due at the end of the chapterMath homework should take about 30 minutes/night.Homework is a tool for students to practice concepts; learn independent thinking and self-evaluation.Students should have minimal parent help. Parents should not correct homework!Homework is graded on completeness, not correct answers.

Quizzes, Tests, Etc. There will be a quiz or test approximately every week

Tests One per chapterTest corrections are required 10 point test gradeOne retake per trimester

The middle school students minds are still maturing!Be patient! They are a (Gods) work in progress.

High School Math PathLHS Courses include: Consumer MathPre-AlgebraAlgebra 1Enriched Algebra 1GeometryHonors Geometry, Intermediate Algebra 2 Algebra 2/TrigonometryHonors Algebra 2/TrigonometryPre-CalculusHonors Pre-CalculusContemporaryCalculusAP StatisticsAP CalculusUC Mathematics Requirements 3 years required, 4 years recommendedThree years of college-preparatory mathematics that include the topics covered in elementary and advanced algebra and two- and three-dimensional geometry. Approved integrated math courses may be used to fulfill part or all of this requirement, as may math courses taken in the seventh and eighth grades that your high school accepts as equivalent to its own math courses.21Success in Higher Math Advice for students (and parents)Be there absences can really hurtBe interestedListen and take notesCorrect your own work want to know what you did wrongAsk questions when you dont understandMake an appointment with the teacher if necessary
