Mrs. Rampy's 5th Grade Syllabus and Homework Policy
How does my child earn their math grade?
Grades will be based on the scores from assignments such as class work, projects, quizzes, homework, and test.
Homework counts 20% of their grade.
Class work and quizzes count 20% of the grade.
Test counts 60% of the grade.
Why does Mrs. Rampy assign homework?
In math, practicing what we do in class really DOES HELP the students. Homework is useful in reinforcing what has been learned in class and prepares students for upcoming test. Mom and Dad your child is NOT going to have 50 to 100 problems each night so you can relax a little. I have a child and understand the amount of time homework can take. Please be sure to check on your child by referring to the homework assignments in their planner. I will give assignments at the beginning of the week for the entire week. By allowing you a week's notice, you can plan around other activities that you may have during the week. If your child forgets the planner, the homework assignments will also be located on my class website. By the way, "doing" your homework is the easiest way to make a 100 each week. Each homework assignment will be worth 20 points making the weekly total 100 points. If your child has their homework each day they will receive their points….the easiest grade to make. I also believe in the philosophy which states "Don't expect what you don't inspect." I will be checking homework daily.
How often will class work or quizzes be given?
As we work to understand a concept I need to see how well the class grasps the skill. I would like to give a grade at least once a week on the material that we cover. The quiz will cover a concept that was covered in class or an assignment that was given in class. If I have asked the children to write material in their math notebook, then the notebook check could be the grade.
What about tests?
Test count 50% of your child's grade as this is a true reflection of what your child is capable of doing on their own. Homework and class work have the opportunities for your child to ask questions and receive help which is why they only count 25% each. Tests are totally independent work therefore, should count more; giving you an indication of how well your child is performing in math class.
Preparing for test:
The week of the test your child will receive a study guide to complete for homework. We will go over the study guide in class and your child will be allowed to ask questions or make any corrections as needed to the study guide. Hopefully, by allowing more time to study your child will be successful on test day.
How many times have you heard your child say, "That's not how the teacher did it!" Many times, in math, there is several ways a problem can be solved. To help parents with this problem and to prove to your child that you DO know what you are doing I will have a study night on the week of big test. This will be for both the parent and child to come to my class to review for the test. You may look for these upcoming dates in your child's planner.
