You will need the following supplies for class every day: a one-inch binder, 5 tabs for the binder, 2 different colored highlighters, and a pencil.  I am also asking students to bring in a box of Kleenex.

Workbooks and Consumable Math Book

Each student will receive workbooks in this class.  It is the responsibility of the student to take care of their workbooks. They will only be given one copy of each workbook.


A binder is necessary to help the student with organizational skills.

Pencils and erasers

Students need to use pencils in Math Class.  One of the ways to better learn math is by making mistakes.  All students need a pencil and a good eraser every day in class.  If it becomes necessary, students will be allowed to borrow a pencil for their math class only. 


Students will be assigned homework Monday-Thursday.  Homework or projects may be assigned over the weekend as necessary.  If you do not turn in homework on time, you will be penalized 10 points per day it is late and parents will be notified.
