Dear Parents, August, 2013

As outlined on the attached Algebra syllabus, we will continue to build upon the skills learned during previous years. During the first class, students were given timed tests. Your student should be able to complete **90%** on each timed test within a **3 minute** period. I will e-mail you the results of your student’s timed tests within a week. If your student scores approximately 70% or less on these first few tests, your student will most likely need to practice these math facts at home. It will be the responsibility of your student to meet this goal and may require daily review until the facts have been acquired. Concentrating on speed helps students to respond automatically on demand, freeing their minds to focus on more challenging concepts. *This skill is of the utmost importance.*

As this course progresses, many new problems will rely on previously learned skills. As a result, it is **imperative** that students complete their homework on lined notebook paper (** no spiral notebook paper, please**), using

**pencil**and

**showing their work**. Homework should be written in a sequential manner on the paper. Students who submit homework that does not meet these guidelines will only receive 50% credit for that assignment. Students who consistently do not provide work shown on homework assignments may be given a yellow slip.

Student homework (even problems only) will be graded in class. **Students are expected to check odd numbered homework problems as they complete the homework. This allows students to verify that they understand the concepts. This also helps them be prepared to ask questions during the next class.**

I will periodically be using various math puzzles to help students develop their problem solving skills. Although the puzzles will be of varying difficulty, what one student may find as easy, another student may find difficult, and vice versa. Please encourage your student to try them, but not become overwhelmed or stressed by them. I may occasionally post some puzzles on my website for an extra challenge.

Students should also have a **colored pen **(other than black or blue) with them to grade homework. Students benefit from immediate feedback by correcting the homework during class. I will still collect and gather the homework to review your student’s work. Tests will be graded by me. In addition, I periodically will give basic skill tests to review previously learned concepts. These skill tests will not be recorded as a grade, but will be used to help the student prepare for future test taking.

I look forward to working with your student. Please confirm your e-mail address below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at lecklider@att.net. My assignment sheets will be posted on my blog, **mrslecklider.wordpress.com** if your student loses his/her copy or you want to access the assignment sheets.

Sincerely,

Brenda Lecklider

And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance,

Dear Parents, August, 2013

As outlined on the attached syllabus, we will continue to build upon the skills learned during previous years. We will occasionally spend time in class honing basic math facts, working on speed and accuracy, however the ultimate responsibility lies with the student. Your student should be able to complete **90%** on each timed test within a **3 minute** period. I will e-mail you the results of your student’s timed tests within the first week of class. If your student scores approximately 70% or less on these first few tests, your student will most likely need to practice these math facts at home.

Homework should be written in a sequential manner on the paper. Homework that does not meet these guidelines will only receive 50% credit for that assignment. Students who do not show their work on homework assignments will be given a yellow slip if this becomes a habit.

Student homework will be graded in class. Students should also have a **colored pen **(other than black or blue) with them to grade homework. Students benefit from immediate feedback by correcting the homework during class. I will still collect and gather the homework to review your student’s work. I will grade tests. I will periodically send home “SAT type” tests to help your student prepare for upcoming PSAT or SAT tests. In addition, I periodically will give basic skills tests to review previously learned concepts. These skill tests will not be recorded as a grade, but will be used to help the student prepare for future test taking.

I look forward to working with your student. Please confirm your e-mail address below. If you have more than one address, please list the one that you check regularly. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at lecklider@att.net.
