2. Connected Math Program 3 • Aligned with Common Core State Standards (N.J.) • Helps students with problem solving • Promotes deeper understanding of concepts • Promotes learning by doing, not by watching • New Standardized Tests - Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC): reading, writing, comprehending, and explaining • Makes math a more concrete subject to grasp, relates it to real life

3. CMP3 continued… • 8 books throughout the year • Listed on the Course Description • Binder upkeep is essential • Keeping lessons and homework in chronological order • No writing in the books • Copies of lesson materials are given in advance

8. Grading (Total Points) Homework • Graded on a scale from 0-3 • 3 = All work shown, all questions fully answered (not just the answer) • 2 = All questions answered, some work shown (“a little something missing”) • 1= some questions answered, some work shown (“a little something done”) • 0 = nothing done • Late assignments can be made up for partial credit

9. Group Work • ON TASK • ACTIVE PARTICIPATION • RESPECT FOR OTHERS • EXCELLENT BEHAVIOR Each individual student will receive a “group grade.” This grade is based on how the individual student contributes to the group activity. Grades range from 3-2-1-0. Not always an everyday grade

13. Extra Help • Morning, at lunch time, during study hall, or at the end of the day, depending upon the teacher’s availability. • Teachers may be contacted via email for a morning pass if one wasn’t picked up during the day • New morning pass policy: students are allowed into the building at 7:30 a.m. with a teacher’s pass

14. Genesis • Updated every few days; the Rotating-Drop schedule is a factor • Homework and group work are included • Tests and quizzes will be posted on Genesis within the week, but all students need to have taken the assess- ment in order for the students to get them back • Students can come after school to see their tests and quizzes and do corrections
