7th GRADE MATH TEST INFORMATION
THE NEXT MATH TEST WILL BE: Friday, November 30 over Chapter 3
There will be two or three math tests per quarter. Students will know when tests are scheduled AT LEAST a week prior to the test. Seventh grade math tests are usually worth anywhere from 40-100 points. I give partial credit on tests based on the work shown. Often times, students are required to show work in order to receive the points both on tests and homework. Generally, a quiz or two may be given during each chapter. We often review concepts in class prior to a quiz. A quiz is usually worth 10-30 points.
Seventh grade students need to STUDY FOR TESTS! Studying should be easy because students are to take notes in their math composition notebook over each lesson. Students can also study the math review study guide we go over in class the day prior to the test. It may be in the form of a review from the math book or a math game played in class. Students will know the exact format of each test, as I go over it with them the day prior to the test. So, they know if there will be vocabulary words, multiple choice, short answer, essay questions, extra credit, etc., on the test.
7th GRADE MATH HOMEWORK INFORMATION
The types of math practice, homework, and assessments will vary this school year, as will the length of time to complete them and the point value. Sometimes I will give either a small assignment or just a couple of problems that might be due the next day. Other times I may give a slightly longer assignment but give students a couple of days to complete it (these will often be worth 10 points). Students will be clearly informed about due dates. At times I will give in-class assignments due at the end of the class. These in-class activities could be either individual work, partner work, or group work. If absent, students need to visit the daily log in my classroom to find out what was missed, including any homework that was given or collected.
Students will be required to keep a math composition notebook that will be graded at various times each quarter. The notebook will include items such as vocabulary words and definitions, steps to solving problems, example and practice problems, and diagrams/illustrations. If absent, it is the responsibility of the student to see me (or another trustworthy student) to find out what material was missed and to make sure that the information gets placed in the notebook. Notebook requirements will clearly be explained to students,
As a parent/guardian, please check in your child's assignment notebook and yellow folder to ensure that assignments are being completed. Please see the 7th grade homework page for current assignments. Encourage your child to complete and turn in all assignments and to ask questions. Questions let me know what math skills need time for re-explaining. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns!
