Welcome to Mr. Duraj’s Math Class
2013-2014 School Year
-This will contain your notes, classwork, practice, checkpoints, and summative assessments
-This will stay in the room and keep any classwork/notes BEFORE it gets transferred to your binder (weekly)
-This will also be where your weekly progress sheet will be. (I’ll explain later)
1. Be on time!!!
-Three tardies per quarter=lunch detention (you don’t want these)
2. Be prepared
-Once you enter my room, you should NOT have to run back out to your locker (know what you need!)
3. Be respectful
-Whether it is me, your classmates, or another speaker, do not speak unless you’re called on and show full attention
-I may have important information to get out before you leave, so even if kids are lined up at the door…you stay
“Where do I turn in notes for the office?”
-The “Homeroom” tray on my desk
“Where do I hand in practice or late work?”
-The “Grade Me Please” tray on my desk
“Mr. D, I was absent, what did I miss?”
-Ask a partner at your table, I will be more then happy to provide you with the work located next to the golf poster
“I need a calculator”
“I need to sharpen my pencil”
- Please wait until no one is speaking to sharpen your pencil. There is a manual one located by Arnold Schwarzenegger and an electric one on the extra supplies table.
“Where is the practice written for each day?”
-On the back board, you will see the practice for each day
“What is my learning goal/big idea for each lesson?”
-It is also written on the back board next to your assignments (these should be written down on your progress sheet every day)
Get ready to have a great school year!!!
Now, it’s time to learn about you……..
