Part 1: Course InformationInstructor Information

Course DescriptionIn grade six, your child will learn the concept of rates and ratios and use these tools to solve word problems. Students will work on quickly and accurately dividing multi-digit whole numbers and adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing multi digit decimals. Students will extend their previous work with fractions and decimals to understand the concept of rational numbers. Students will also learn how to write and solve equations and apply these skills in solving multi-step word problems.

Build RapportIf you find that you have any trouble keeping up with assignments or other aspects of the course, make sure you let your instructor know as early as possible. As you will find, building rapport and effective relationships are key to becoming an effective professional. Make sure that you are proactive in informing your instructor when difficulties arise during the semester so that they can help you find a solution.

Course Requirements

*Be respectful of others**Come to class prepared (paper, pencil, and assignments)*

- In math class we are going to learn in a variety of ways. We start a lesson with a discussion of what is to be learned. Then we move onto some modeling/discussion with notetaking. Students then will have some guided practice. After practice we will move onto our math where students might work independently, in a group, or small group with teacher.

Explanation of Assignments:

- Assessments including quizzes over individual standards as well as unit tests.
- Classwork and homework are assignments that provide practice on individual skills.
- Math tasks require students to give in- depth explanations of their thinking as they engage in problem-solving.
- TNReady is the assessment given in the spring that tests the Tennessee Mathematics curriculum.

Academic Dishonesty PolicyThis is an example only:

**1. Academic dishonesty includes such things as cheating, inventing false information or citations, plagiarism and helping someone else commit an act of academic dishonesty. It usually involves an attempt by a student to show possession of a level of knowledge or skill that he/she does not possess.****2. Teachers have the initial responsibility for detecting and dealing with academic dishonesty. Instructors who believe that an act of academic dishonesty has occurred are obligated to discuss the matter with the student(s) involved. Instructors should possess reasonable evidence of academic dishonesty. However, if circumstances prevent consultation with student(s), instructors may take whatever action (subject to student appeal) they deem appropriate.****3. Teachers who are convinced by the evidence that a student is guilty of academic dishonesty shall assign an appropriate academic penalty. If the teachers believe that the academic dishonesty reflects on the student's academic performance or the academic integrity in a course, the student's grade should be adversely affected. Suggested guidelines for appropriate actions are: an oral reprimand in cases where there is reasonable doubt that the student knew his/her action constituted academic dishonesty; a failing grade on the particular paper, project or examination where the act of dishonesty was unpremeditated, or where there were significant mitigating circumstances; a failing grade in the course where the dishonesty was premeditated or planned.****Student Testing Code of Ethics and Security**It is important for you as a student to know that the following guidelines are to be strictly followed.

__This year the TNReady test will count at least 10% of your final semester grade.__Your work on this test is very important and it deserves your best effort.I understand that during testing on the days of the assessment, I am responsible for:

- Not having any electronic devices on me or in my purse/backpack/pockets
- Including but not limited to cell phones, smart phones, smart watches, etc.
**during testing or during breaks.** - Best practice is for students to leave devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing.
- If I am caught with a device during testing or during breaks, my test may be
__nullified, resulting in a zero as at least 10% of my final semester grade__, and any school level disciplinary action as deemed appropriate by the administration.
