Mrs. Mahaffey's 4th Grade Math
Welcome to Mrs. Mahaffey's 4th Grade Math Class!!
My Belief for every child that walks though my door...
The true ingredient to success is NOT IQ, wealth, privilege, culture, race, or even small town status!
It's hard work and grit!!!
This means pushing through when it gets tough and you want to give up!
Things to know:
Students are highly encouraged to pass two lessons a week on www.thinkthroughmath.com. This helps to fill in any educational math gaps that might be present. It will also help students on grade level soar even higher! They will be given some class time, but they can access this cite on any android/iphone, tablet, ipad (or generic), laptop, PC, library computer, and really anything that has access to the world wide web. There will not be any penalty for not completing the lessons except for students not working to their full potential. There WILL BE, however, great rewards for meeting and even exceeding their goals.
Daily Grades 70%
Tests/Unit Test 30%
*Students may correct daily grades, but their original grade will be averaged with their new grade if the corrections were independent, or averaged with a 70 when we correct together in class.
Tests and Unit Test can be corrected, but the original grades will not change (this includes multiplication fact tests).
Students will be given a homework packet of multiplication facts every Monday and is due every Friday.
If you have a concern you would like to address about your student, please don't hesitate to set up a time where we can meet.
Conference time: 9:45-10:30, or by special appointment.
NOTE: Keep in mind that www.thinkthroughmath.com is great for tutorials!!!!
