Integrated Math 7
Classroom Atmosphere: Every student has the right to learn and the responsibility to allow others to learn. Students will be expected to follow all school rules and classroom negotiated norms.
Consequences for Misbehavior: All disruptions will be handled by timeouts. In the event that a student chooses to interfere with the positive environment of the classroom, the following steps will be taken.
● The 1st time a student chooses to interfere with instruction, the student will be sent to a Stage 1 timeout in class for 10 minutes.
● If a student disrupts while in Stage 1, the student will be sent to Stage 2 in another supervised room for 20 minutes, and I will contact a parent/guardian regarding the behavior.
● If a student disrupts while in Stage 2, the student will be sent to the Asst. Principal for a conference and further disciplinary action.
Note: any actions that are taken are recorded in a behavior log that can be viewed by administrators.
Consequences for Good Behavior: Students who exhibit exceptional behavior and performance will be rewarded by:
● Verbal praises
● Home contact (telephone, note, or email)
● Participation in special activities
● Student of the Week and Month Certificates
● Britton Bobcat Bucks that can be used for the weekly raffle
Daily Materials: Students will need the following materials every day.
(If you are unable to obtain the required supplies, ask the teacher for assistance.)
● Agenda for recording assignments (provided by the school)
● 3 ring binder with a Math section to keep handouts, notes, and homework
(One 2 to 3 inch binder with 5 dividers is used for all classes)
● At least three sharpened #2 wooden pencils
● Small enclosed manual pencil sharpener
● Glue stick
● Scientific Notation Calculator - TI 30x IIS or Casio FX260 SLR recommended
(Students may not use their phone as a calculator.)
Homework: Homework is assigned five days a week. Each homework assignment is worth 5 points, unless stated otherwise, with all work shown; and makes up 20% of the students' grade. Late homework will be accepted until the end of each chapter. If a student is absent, he/she must complete the missed assignment. Homework help is available before school.
Classwork: Classwork will be worth 20% of the students' grade. Any work not finished in class must be finished at home. A successful student participates in all classroom activities. Students will be scored on participation and completion of the assignment.
Assessments: Assessments make up 60% of the students' grade. Assessments include formative assessments, quizzes, summative assessments, and benchmarks.
It is strongly recommended that students who miss several days of school come in before school for help in getting caught up. (See me to make an appointment)
Textbooks: Each student receives one mathematics textbook that should be covered and kept in a safe place at home.

Grades: Teachers use eSchool for their grade book and post grades online through the same service. I recommend that you check your grades once a week by clicking on the eSchool logo at the Britton web site http://www.britton.mhu.k12.ca.us and logging in with your student user name and password.
Students and Parents may obtain the user name and password from the office.
Grades will be determined by student homework scores, classwork scores, and assessment scores. Grades will be assigned according to the district recommended percentages listed below.

87 - 89 = B+
83 - 86 = B
80 - 82 = B-
77 - 79 = C+
73 - 76 = C
70 - 72 = C-
67 - 69 = D+
63 - 66 = D
60 - 62 = D-
0 - 59 = F
(GPA Points) A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, F = 0

Wish List: In an effort to supply students with the proper tools and resources, our class could use donations of:
● Pastel Colored Copy Paper
● Tissue Boxes
● Correcting Pens
● Graph Paper
● White Board Markers
● Glue Sticks
● Parent assistance making copies through Home and School Club
● Parent and/or student help preparing resources
Information about Technology:
Students will be using several forms of technology, such as, computers, calculators, responders, interactive white boards, and Google apps. Students will not be allowed to use their cell phone during school hours, and cannot use their cell phone for any of the technological applications. The only technological device that students need to bring to school is their scientific notation calculator. Calculators are needed for Math and Science. All other devices will be supplied by the school.
Make sure to sign the use agreement documents, so that the student can use all of the available technology.
