Math 5th-8th

Weekly Lessons

Students receive homework in Math every day, with the exception of a test day.  In Saxon Math, students are tested on every 5 lessons.  Students are allowed to use their notes and make test corrections on these assessments.  In class, students are expected to take notes every day, and complete a power up which tests their math fact knowledge, mental math skills, and problem solving skills.  After completion of this, the new lesson is introduced, and students take notes on the new material.  Students then complete practice problems that focus on the day's lesson.  They receive participation credit for this work.  Students are then assigned Lesson Practice problems 1-30. 



Be sure to check your child's weekly progress report, which comes home every Thursday.  This indicates your child's grade and any missing work they may have.  Missing work must be completed within one week of the due date or it is reported as a 0 and can not be made up.  Please be sure the office has your correct e-mail address, so that we may notify you if your child is missing an assignment.
