Typical Day in Mathematics
High School Entrance Preparation
The 8th Graders have been divided into two groups and are rotating the following tutoring schedule.

8th Grade Pre-Algebra/ Algebra
All students are eligible to retake a test two times during the 9 weeks. After the original test, the student will be required to serve one tutorial session on the material, and he or she may retake the test. Each student has one week from the date of the original test to retake.
The two scores (original and retake) will be averaged together to give the student his or her new score (i.e. 60% original & 100% retake = 80% new score).
*** It is important to note that the test/project re-take policy is a safety net and is not intended to be used as a regular practice by a student.

Integrated Physics and Chemistry
Students will be introduced to the basic principles of chemistry and physics. They will learn about the structure of matter at the molecular level, write chemical equations, balance them, and be able to identify types of equations. Students will learn how to use the Periodic Table of Elements as a reference tool.
What we do...
Students will learn about the principles of physics, the laws of motion, as well as speed, velocity, acceleration, kinetic energy, and more, then apply these to real life situations.
Science LAB
The students will refine their scientific investigation skills through lab experiments performed weekly, followed by a lab report. These lab reports are due the following day and are a daily grade. In addition, students will perform frequent hands-on activities to reinforce concepts. Models and projects will also be included as part of this course.
Tests are given
at the end of each unit being stu
died. Tuesdays are test days. The

will be corrected and placed in th
eir binders after grading
will also be collected and graded
as major grades
during each grading period.
