Parent ResourcesI look forward to working together with you to help your child find success in mathematics. There are many things you can do at home to help your child in math:- Be positive about math and show your child how math is used in your life.· Save my class website to your computer for quick access. It provides a link to the assignment calendar, due dates located in the 'Calendar' section (GREEN assignments are for Blocks 3 and 5 or the classes using the green book, where RED assignments are for Block 6 students, or the class using the red book), and interactive websites which provide homework help and practice quizzes and tests. For students, their Math Schoology site has many study resources.
· Read through the assignment calendar and encourage your child to complete assignments on time. Remind them to use their planner, which is updated for the week every Monday.
· Help your child establish a consistent and organized place for homework completion and / or studying.
· Look over your child’s assignments and binder to make sure it’s clear and organized.
· Remind your child to ask questions, seek extra help if needed, and make assignment corrections to better understand the material. I am available both before and after school and love to help! There are online videos and tutorials available on our book's website.· Use parent portal to keep track of assignments, grades, attendance, and missing work.- Encourage your child to go to math study links on Schoology that will reinforce concepts learned in class.· If you’ve read this far, you are well on your way to helping out your child! Thank you for the support you give your 8th grader. Your child may not thank you this year, but they really do appreciate your efforts.
