WELCOME TO MRS. DUNBAR'S 8TH GRADE MATH or ALGEBRA 1 classes.
We are at the beginning of 4th Quarter! A new beginning for us. You now have experience with what is expected of you in math class this year. We will continue to spend time this quarter working on meeting the expectations I have for your achievement and success in math this year. Hopefully you have realized the importance of doing your homework each night. You also need to be in class each day and be completing all assignments promptly. Your success depends on it!! We move through material too quickly for you to be absent and then not promptly make up the work missed. You should be learning to use the textbook and it's online website as resources for your learning. Also, check out the online sites for Math at the left to review your math skills and practice concepts you are having trouble with in class!
For my class you will need a composition notebook, loose-leaf paper, graph paper and pencils (no pens). A binder or trapper keeper to clip papers into or a pocket folder to keep your papers in is also needed.
Try to keep up with your Homework. It is essential practice for current and review skills.
NO HOMEWORK! NO PRACTICE! NO LEARNING!

MATH HOMEWORK IS AVAILABLE ON THE CLASSROOM CALENDAR LINK ON THE LEFT MENU BAR!
EXPECTATIONS FOR SUCCESS IN MATH
1. Be in class, on time, each day. We cover too much material for you to be tardy or absent and miss instruction.
2. Be prepared. You need your math notebook, textbook, loose-leaf paper and pencil every day. NO WORK SHOULD BE DONE IN PEN!!!!!
3. Pencils are to be sharpened at the beginning of class only. Do not interrupt class because you dont have a spare. Be prepared!!
4. Use appropriate classroom manners: Remain seated, raise hand for permission to speak, show respect for your classmates and teachers.
5. Do your homework before you come to class. Homework is a practice of skills we are learning. No practice, No learning! Homework must show all work and be complete. All homework counts towards your homework grade. You will receive a percentage grade each week for the homework that you turn in on time and complete. Homework that does not show work (as demonstrated in class) will be returned to you to complete, and turn in again to receive credit.
6. When you are absent, you must check the folder for your class period. The work needs to be turned in promptly according to school board guidelines. Work not made up will be given a zero. Tests are to be made up after school. Class time is not used for make-up work!
