Math in Room 14

We meet daily from 10:05 - 11:05. During this time, you will be working in cooperative groups using a workshop model to integrate exploration, conversation, written expression, practice and game play.

A set portion of the grade is practice (homework) and the rest is based on assessment. The categories are graded from two different standpoints. All practice work leading up to an assessment is seen as just that... practice. It is similar to a soccer team practicing. We utilize drills and warm up activities to develop a base. There is also the opportunity for the student to make/correct errors in their technique. This portion focuses on working toward a desired level of skill. Students are expected to review their errors and make corrections as a learning experience.
The second category is assessment. This is our "game day" grade. The student is assessed on the right/wrong aspect of the skill set. They are given feedback on where they need to continue to focus in class during the practice sessions in order to improve their "game". Assessments will be returned with a self-reflection sheet where students are required to review errors with a parent and determine if the errors are careless or is more instruction needed.

To assist my "players" in improving their technique, we will begin at the start with basic facts practice. Below are some fun but also helpful drill and practice websites to get them started. the first site is to be completed twice a week while the rest are just for additional practice:
