END OF CONTINUOUS LEARNING 4th Quarter Details for 6th AND 7th MATH:

 

Hello! My name is Janelle Tittsworth, but the students usually refer to me as Mrs. T.  This is my 4th year at AMS and 20th year education.  I spent my first seven years teaching math at Valley Center Middle School, where I also coached middle school track and high school basketball.  I transferred to the Andover district in 2007.  I taught math at ACMS for another six years before going into administration.  I was the assistant principal and athletic director at ACMS from 2013-2016.  Managing all the evening activities limited my time with my family, so I chose to return to the classroom and teach again.  I was blessed to have the opportunity to return to a teaching role in this district.  I am thrilled to continue my passion for teaching here at Andover Middle School.

I teach all the Math 6 Accelerated courses, and two Math 7 courses.

Overall MATH grades are weighted: 30% (daily homework) + 70% (quizzes, tests, projects).

    • Steps to complete online HW:
      1. www.bigideasmath.com
      2. Login with ClassLink
      3. Log in with Google  (On home devices, students need to include their whole school email address: lastnamefirstinitial@students.usd385.org.  The @students.usd385.org part is not necessary to type at school so new students and some returning may not realize this at home.)
      4. click on “Assignments” tab at the top

How are we graded?

  • Practice work (homework) counts as 30% of the overall grade. 
  • Assessments (tests/quizzes) count as 70% of the overall grade.
  • Projects vary in their weight, depending on the complexity of the tasks.

What about late work, re-dos, and test retakes?

  • Homework corrections (redo’s) and late homework assignments are accepted prior to the chapter test. 
    • Students must earn less than an 80% in order to redo/correct homework.
    • Students may earn a maximum score of 80% on a redo/late assignment.
    • If an assignment is turned in late, students will be deducted 20% from the grade earned.
    • Students are responsible for seeking help if needed. 
  • Quiz/Test retakes/corrections are handled on a case-by-case basis. 
    • It is the student’s responsibility to visit with the teacher.
    • Per 6th grade math policy, the maximum score you may earn is 80%.

What do we do if we are absent?

  • Students must refer to Mrs. T’s website to access daily lesson plans and homework.
  • The student handbook states the school policy and timeline regarding absent work.
