Be prepared for class! You must have your book covered, an organized notebook and folder OR 3-ring binder and extra loose leaf, 2 sharpened pencils, an eraser, a pen, and your brain!

Turn in your homework on time!  Points will not be awarded for late homework.

Ask me questions! Don’t be afraid, I am here to help you.

Remember, MATH is...FUN

COURSE DESCRIPTION:  This year you will be learning a variety of math concepts.  These concepts include:
  • decimal and fraction computation
  • fraction, decimal, percent conversions
  • ratios
  • integers
  • expressions (algebra)
  • equations and inequalities
  • geometry (area and volume)
  • statistics and probability

WHAT IS EXPECTED: Homework is assigned daily to reinforce and provide practice for concepts and skills taught in school, or as studying or reviewing material for a test or quiz.  Students are expected to have the assigned homework completed when they come to class to receive full credit.  Most assignments will be given in a chapter packet – each student will receive one packet and they should keep their packet in their binder so they do not lose it.  At the end of every chapter, there will be a test – approximately every week to two weeks.  Throughout each chapter, quizzes (on one concept) may be given to monitor student progress.  Students are responsible for completing all homework and in-class work on time.  Points will be deducted for incomplete or late work.


Use your assignment book daily – record assignments accurately, go home and look over your assignment book (show someone at home what you are working on).

Ask Mrs. McDermott if you have ANY questions - I am here to help you!

Come to class prepared with homework complete, at least 2 sharpened pencils, a pen, book, and binder – refer to “6B's Math Survival Guide”.
