    North Carolina is implementing this year the Common Core Curriculum.  The state of North Carolina has standards for Mathematical practice for students.  These are follows:
     

             1.  Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them

    2.  Reason abstractly and quantitatively

    3.  Construct viable arguments and critique reasoning of others

    4.  Model with mathematics

    5.  Use appropriate tools strategically

    6.  Attend to precision

    7.  Look for and make sense of structure

    8.  Look for and express regularly in repeated reasoning


    HOMEWORK

    Students will have a homework assignment every night and most weekends. Homework will be graded in a variety of ways. Most of the time, homework will be graded 50% on effort and 50% on accuracy.  Some homework may be collected and graded 100% for accuracy. Homework should be completed to the best of your ability and you must show your work (i.e. steps taken to complete the problem)! Answers to homework problems will be reviewed in the class. Students should ask questions and to clear up any problems they might have before we move on the next topic. Homework is an integral part of the learning process and helps to re-enforce the lesson concepts and help students master the subject.  Late homework will be accepted for students with an excused absence.
