Mr. Sampson – 7th Grade Mathematics
Class Protocol for 2015/2016 School Year
 
Class Rules:
  1. Be Respectful, Responsible, & Safe– This includes teachers, peers, and their belongings as well as your school.
  2. Be Ready to Work – Complete all work on time in pencil and show ALL work.
  3. All School Rules Apply.
 
Consequences: “Sampson’s Three Strikes/Reminders”
  1. 1st Strike/Reminder – Verbal Warning
  2. 2nd Strike/Reminder – Call Home and Detention
  3. 3rd Strike/Reminder and You’re Out – Detention and send to Student Services
 
Homework Policy:
Homework will be assigned almost everyday and is always due the next day. Assignments will be written weekly on the board and be up for the whole week. We will correct assignments daily in class but not turn them in until Friday in a homework packet. If a student is absent it is their responsibility to ask me for any work that was missed. Students will be given the same number of days they missed to make up the assignments.
 
Late Work:
I will accept late work but the maximum grade is 70% of the original value.
 
Extra Credit:
I do not offer extra credit assignments. However, I will occasionally add extra credit points into an assignment. Make sure to take advantage of this!
 
Tests:
The lowest test grade given on any test will be a 50%. Students will be allowed to correct their tests and raise their grade as much as 10% by re-doing all missed problems. The exceptions would be a grade of 80-88%, which can only be raised to 89%. So 89% is the highest possible I can raise a grade. If you want an “A”, you have to get an “A” the first time.
 
Supplies Needed:
Everyone is expected to have his or her own PENCIL, PEN, MATH NOTEBOOK, DRY ERASE MARKER, and AGENDA everyday (homework assignments will not be accepted in ink). If purchasing any of these items is a difficulty, then please have student contact me and we will make other arrangements.
