Textbook & Online Textbook
A textbook will be checked out at the beginning of the school year.
If for any reason the textbook checked out to the student is lost or damaged, it must be replaced for $102.
The Online textbook has a “tutor” for each lesson.
Within the first few weeks of school, the student will be given an instruction sheet with more information on how to obtain a
username and password for the online textbook.
Students should expect homework on a daily basis.
Time will be given to start the work in class, but should be finished at home.
Homework must be done in pencil and graded in red (pen or pencil).
Students grade their own homework in an effort to learn immediately from their mistakes.
Students will turn in a graded paper OR fill out a R.A.P. sheet. The R.A.P. sheets allow the student to turn in an
assignment at a later date.
Students will receive half credit for “late” assignments. For example: a 10 point paper will be given a grade no
higher than 5 points. A 14 point paper will be given a grade no higher than 7 points. etc.
Missing assignments can be turned in up until the student takes the chapter test.
Advisory/R.A.P. (Raising Academic Performance)
Students will be given an opportunity to pick a 25 minute “Reward Room”. For example: Movie, P.E. (Dodgeball),
Game Room (board games), Social Room, AR/Study Hall.
Students can pick the AR room to read and/or take AR tests.
Students can pick the Study Hall to complete homework.
Students may be assigned to RAP:
Students can use this time to complete missing assignments in any subject area.
Students can make up quizzes and tests for all of their classes during this time.
Students can also use R.A.P. to get caught up on missing work after an absence.
Every Monday, students will write down the lesson plans for the week in their math folder.
Students can use these lessons to plan and prepare for the week ahead.
Lesson plans are also posted on my web page. ( See website address above)

Mrs. Morris Pre-Algebra 2018-2019
Each day I will give you small pieces of information that will help you be successful in Pre-Algebra. This course is ultimately designed to prepare students for Algebra I, while there are review lessons for arithmetic skills, all algebraic vocabulary and form are used throughout the course. So I can better prepare you for next year, students will be required to show all of their work.
