Math Facts
How Can I Keep Informed About My Child's Work in Math?

- As a parent, you can easily check if your child is completing homework by looking at his/her homework assignment and stamping sheet.

- Also, the dates of all quizzes and tests are written on the homework stamp sheets.

- All tests must be signed by a parent, so be on the lookout for those (approximately once a month)

Can students retake tests and quizzes for a better grade or do extra credit?

-Students can do test corrections for tests below 80%.
(only ONE unit in PAA)

-Students must come in for an appointment to do test corrections with Mrs. Finato

How can I help my student prepare for tests or quizzes?
-Encourage your student to do as many practice problems as possible!
-Review the vocabulary words together
-Make a “practice” test for your student from previous quizzes or homework assignments
-Encourage your student to ask for help!
