From: Broad Run High School Math Department
Welcome back to Broad Run! We are eager to begin helping you to be successful in your math class. Your success depends on your effort, your attendance, and your positive attitude.
Your effort will be shown in the notebook that you will be required to keep. In it you will write daily notes and do your assignments. You will also be REQUIRED TO DO YOUR ASSIGNMENTS AND TO TAKE YOUR QUIZZES AND TESTS IN PENCIL. Be sure to correct your errors on your assignments, quizzes, and tests – LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES. Always ASK questions on anything you do not understand.
It is most important that you be present and on time each day. If you have to miss class, it is YOUR responsibility to get the notes and the assignment, make arrangements to take any quiz or test that you miss, and follow school policy for assignment due dates as outlined in the Broad Run Agenda. You have one week to make up quizzes and tests. BE SURE TO REVIEW THE BROAD RUN ATTENDANCE POLICY.
To insure your success, you need to keep a positive attitude about your work, to review your work each night, and to PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! Pay close attention in class and ask us for help. We are happy to help you understand a concept better or to find an error for you. If you feel you need a tutor, please contact the GUIDANCE OFFICE. Also, for those of you enrolled in any SOL math class teachers are available to tutor every day during lunch in the MATH LAB. Math Lab is in room 108 on A days and room 103 on B days.
Broad Run will be continuing a 15-minute reading session during the beginning of the first Flex Period. Be sure to bring reading materials with you. Flex Period is not a study hall. Its primary purposes are for teacher-guided review and remediation. Tests and quizzes may be made up during the next available flex period.
Please cover your book and treat it with care. We encourage students to purchase a TI-84 series graphing calculator. Please do not buy a TI-89, TI-92, or any other symbolic manipulator since they are not approved for use on state SOL assessments.
Your nine weeks’ grade will be the average of your quizzes, tests, a homework grade, and other graded assignments. Your homework grade is determined by your EFFORT not the number of correct answers. As far as the quizzes and tests are concerned, study hard and seek answers to your questions from us. We want you to be successful so that you can continue in other math courses with confidence and with an excellent math background!
