**6 ^{th} Grade Mathematics Syllabus**

**2017 – 2018**

**Course Description and Textbook:**

The sixth grade mathematics curriculum consists of the four following components: Numerical Representations and Relationships, Computations, Geometry and Measurements, and Data Analysis and Personal Financial Literacy. Throughout each of these components, we will be focusing on students establishing and expanding students’ problem solving and critical thinking skills.

The textbook that will be used for this course is __Texas Go Math Grade 6__, published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. To access the online version of this textbook, use www.myhrw.com.

**9-Weeks Grading Period Calculations:**

Tests – 50%

Students will take assessments at the end of each unit. Students will have many opportunities to demonstrate a mastery of the concepts taught. Tests, when assigned, will be on Fridays or Wednesdays.

Daily Work/Quizzes – 30%

Students have the opportunity to demonstrate their learning through completing daily work (classwork) and Quizzes.

Homework – 20%

The purpose of homework is to promote and enhance high quality learning and achievement. Assigned homework is due at the beginning of the next class, with all work shown. Late homework must be submitted before the next progress reporting date. Late submissions will receive 50 points off.

**Make-Up Tests and Re-Tests:**

Make-Up tests will be given before or after school in a designated math teacher’s classroom. You must schedule a time with your teacher to take the make-up test.

Re-Tests will also be given before or after school in a designated math teacher’s classroom. A re-test allows a student the opportunity to improve a failing grade on a test to a passing score. In order to re-test, a student must complete test corrections, which will be turned in the day of their re-test. Please consult the Student Handbook to further review the current policy.

Keep your notebook in order at all times.

Write all daily assignments, quiz, and test dates in your planner.

Keep notes and in-class Warm-Ups in your binder. Your binder will remain in the classroom.

Cheating – Each party will receive a zero and will be disciplined according to the school’s cheating policy. This applies to homework, daily work, quizzes, and tests.

Consequences for not following procedures can include a lunch detention, a phone call home, or an office referral.

**Substitute Policy**

Spring Branch Middle School has a no tolerance policy concerning unacceptable behavior in the classroom while a substitute is covering for the regular teacher.
