I am very pleased to have this opportunity to work with you and your children here at Kenwood Middle School. I earned my Bachelor's Degree at Western Governors University of Tennessee. I have worked at Kenwood for several years, first as an educational assistant, then as a student teacher and now a 7th grade math teacher. I am looking forward to a successful year. Let us build your child's future together; one lesson at a time.

Math Materials for 2018-19:

Three pronged two pocket folder, clear tape, glue sticks, pencils, erasers, tissues, hand sanitizer, dry erase markers, Loose Leaf Paper (wide ruled), earbuds/headphones and a box of tissues

Course of Study:

The Number System: Provides an opportunity for students to reinforce and extend their understanding of operations with rational numbers.

Expressions and Equations: The purpose is to ensure that students have a strong foundation in manipulating and solving algebraic expressions and equations.

Ratios and Proportions: Students will investigate and solve problems involving rates and develop their understanding of ratios to include complex fractions and percent. Students will analyze proportional relationships and use them to solve real-world problems.

Statistics and Probability: The focus is on the foundational understandings related to simple and compound probability. They will use random sampling to draw inferences about a population.

Geometry: Students will engage in hands-on investigation of the properties of triangles and other geometric shapes. We will work with two-dimensional figures and work with circumference and area of circles and three-dimensional figures by exploring their volumes, as well as determining surface area of three dimensional figures.

HOMEWORK POLICY/LATE WORK/MAKE-UP WORK

I use a variety of teaching strategies to present grading opportunities, which include in-class participation, independent practice, homework, partner or group work and projects. Homework will be assigned daily. It will cover concepts taught or any review concepts. Work that is submitted 1- day late will earn a maximum of 85% and any subsequent days is 50%.  Work will not be accepted after the unit assessment.  The district policy applies for absences.  Assignments will be placed in students individual folder when absent.  Students are responsible for getting their own missing assignments.  It is the student’s responsibility to turn-in their make-up work to receive credit.

Assessments:

I give advance notice prior to most scheduled assessments and students should study for each.  Each assessment will consist of the content previously taught. Students are able to use their own class notes on quizzes only. Other assessments will be given throughout each of the nine weeks.  Students will be given an opportunity to correct/retake an assessment, if they score below 80%, earning a max score of 80%. There will also be mandated assessments given throughout the school year according to state and district regulations.

GRADING PROCEDURES

 You can access In-progress grades through the PowerSchool Program (link listed above).  Students will earn Practice scores worth 30% of their overall grade: classwork, homework, participation work.  They will also earn Assessment scores worth 70% of their overall grade: tests, quizzes, and /or projects. Contact the schools office for PowerSchool passwords.  Grades for each week will be available by Tuesday of the following week. Advanced Students must maintain a B average each recording period to remain in the advance class.

Thank you, Mrs. L. Nettles
