POINT RECOVERY 

Use the math test correction sheet to earn back partial credit on points you miss on projects or tests. This is offered for all tests and projects of 25 points or higher when a student earns below 70% on the assessment and students may earn UP TO a 70 (C) after corrections. Students will be asked to complete a study guide, attend a review session, or other activity to be eligible for point recovery. They are available one time per assessment.
The due date will be clearly posted on the homework calendar. They MUST be turned in by that date with a parent signature in order for a change to occur on the assignment. Any test corrections sheets without a parent signature will not be accepted. If corrections are not done in full, points will not be added.
For the "reason I did not receive full credit" section, you should fill in what your error was. Some examples are:
When you solve the problem, be sure to show ALL work. You will not earn any additional credit if all work is not shown!
The "what I learned from my mistake" section is just what it sounds like tell me what you learned! Some examples are:

Homework
Homework should take less than 30 minutes to complete. If you notice it is taking your student longer to complete, it might correlate with a lack of mastery on topics such as multiplication. My suggestion is to practice these operations with them. This will pay off in the long run for all of us! *Homework assignments are not ALWAYS taken for a grade as I grade for accuracy, but homework will still be typically assigned on a daily basis.
Multiplication "Quizzes"
Every unit, students will take a 100 question multiplication "quiz." For math 6+ it covers facts from 0 to 144, and 0 to 100 for math 6. Typically, 6th grade math can be a lot easier for students who have mastered their multiplication facts and can recall them without a calculator. Throughout the school year there are many units that are calculator inactive, and on the EOG there are questions where calculators are not provided. We need to learn to be mathematical thinkers and be our own calculator :)
The highest grade for the multiplication quiz will go in to PowerSchools, so continue to work on these facts regularly! Once your student has earned a 100%, they never have to take another!

Notebooks
Students will be using an interactive notebook in my classroom that will hold all important papers and activities throughout the year. They will be given instructions on how the notebook is to be used and will keep track with a table of contents that will help keep them organized. Organization can immensely help a student succeed and I would recommend going through your child’s notebooks and binders on a regular basis to help them with this process.
Every unit, the notebook will be collected and a page from that unit will be graded for accuracy. Make sure your ENTIRE notebook is completed by the last day of the unit (even if you had been absent!).

Absences
Students will have two days for each day absent to turn in the work they missed. Check the "Absent?" area every time you are out to collect what you missed while you were gone. If you have any questions about what needs to be completed, talk to the Notes Master and Attendance Official BEFORE you come to Ms. Discepoli to ask. You are responsible for everything you missed while you were out, including warmups.
