Welcome to Mrs. Garcia's Math Webpage
Our high school has implemented an online learning platform called mathspace. Students may log in to the website at www.mathspace.co (it ends with .CO and not .COM) or download the free app from your mobile device's app store. Parents who send me their email address can also be registered to receive math progress alerts about your student!
Interactive Math Notebooks IMN
My math classes will be utilizing interactive math notebooks (IMN). The left side pages are used to complete all classwork and homework assignments. The right side pages contain Focused Notes that are taken from the e-textbook and then processed with highlighting, 4 left-side questions and a summary paragraph.
Parents please regularly browse through your students IMN to check that they are completing assignments listed the Table of Contents on time and earning the "on time stamp."
If you do not see stamps on the left side pages, assingnments are not being completed on time and grades are affected significantly, as any late assignments are graded with a 30% penalty off of the assignment.
Daily Homework Posts
For a list of daily assignments, scroll further down this page under the Classes list and click on the link for your class period. All students are to have subscribed to your class section's homework email alerts. Parents, you as well, may subscribe to email alerts so you can stay informed of daily assignments and we can all better support your student's success.
Our school is now using the Aeries program. Parents and students, be sure to obtain your passcode from the office in order to begin monitoring your child's academic performance and attendance.
Tests = 35%, Quizzes = 25%, Assignments = 25%, Participation/Citizenship = 15%
On time work is noted by a stamp daily. Late work will not be stamped, but when notebooks are collected (on unit test days) late work will be graded for 70% of the credit.
All assignments are to be glued/stapled into the math notebook each day. Please do not wait until notebook is due to start organizing your work according to each chapter's table of contents.
No homework is assigned from my class, as all assignments are expected to be finished in class. However, if a student does not meet his/her learning target, he/she is expected to complete it at home.
Lunch tutoring is available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the week. This time is allotted for those who need to study, make up assignments, retake quizzes, or complete test corrections. I can also be available for individual appointments during my 6th period prep time.
No Food Allowed In The Classroom During Lunch Tutoring, Please Finish Your Lunch Beforehand
