That’s all you need to do guys!
Thank you for working hard, and I’ll see you in our virtual classroom every Thursday at 1 PM.
Hasta la vista Guys!
Our schools may be closed, but using online classes, teachers can continue educating our students while they are in a safe place at home with their families.

When meeting a new teacher, students are ONLY interested in knowing the answers to questions like:
Who is my teacher?
I teach because I want to make a difference. I am a teacher who is committed to helping students to succeed in school while nurturing their unconditional selfacceptance, and emotional wellbeing. I believe in teaching with compassion, dedication, and enthusiasm. My mission is to create a caring, and empathetic group of students, that develop a love of learning that will last a lifetime, and I hope that within each one of them, I can ignite a fire that will inspire them to believe, grow, and seek knowledge to figure out what moves them to make a difference in the world.
What are the rules in the classroom?
Be on time every day
Any student who was absent must attend tutorials the following day in order to receive instruction, so as not to fall behind in his/her missing assignments.
Be on Task
Listen and follow directions. Be prompt, attentive, and participate in class. Try to do your best at all times!
Be responsible
Any student who does not complete the homework will be required to stay for the day the homework was due to complete missing homework to provide content reinforcement needed.
Be safe
Any running or other safety violation will result in after school detention. Time to be determined by the teacher.
Be Courteous
Follow the Golden Rule; treat others as you wish to be treated.
Do not use inflammatory or offensive language, sarcasm, or raised voices.
Be responsible for your own learning.
Come to class prepared in every way to learn and participate. Work quietly.
Always do your best.
Have pride on all you do, and Never give up!
Turn off and put away any personal electronic device.
The learning process requires a distractionfree learning environment.
Be Positive, Productive, Polite, Prepared, and ResPectful (the 5 Ps).
Why is this class important to me?
Math is incredibly important in our lives. Math is used in everyday life. mathematics gives us the critical ability to learn and think logically. Math skills are important for all kinds of jobs, from retail cashier to stockbroker. For many jobs, using math is a daily part of the work.
Students will become adults who will use math in their jobs. All kinds of careers use math; for example electronics, civil and structural engineering, accountants, doctors, bankers, meteorologists, game designers, robotics designers, and even mothers use math.
What are we learning in this class?
The major math strands for seventhgrade curriculum are number sense and operations, arithmetic with negative numbers, algebra basics, proportions, geometry and spatial sense, measurement, and data analysis and probability.
Number sense topics include exponents and scientific notation; prime numbers; factoring; combining like terms; substituting values for variables; simplification of algebraic expressions; and calculating rate, distance, time, and mass.
Students will learn to evaluate expressions, generate equivalent expressions, and efficiently solve equations and inequalities. Also, they will apply the properties of operations to work efficiently with expressions and equations.
Students will investigate proportional relationships and use this understanding to solve realworld problems involving discounts, interest, taxes, and scale drawings.
Geometric topics include the classification of angles and triangles; finding the unknown measurement of a triangle’s side, and determining the slope of a line. Students will study twodimensional and threedimensional figures and will learn how to find perimeter, area, angle measures, and volume and surface area of solids.
Students will also learn to use a variety of graphs to represent data and to interpret those graphs, and they will learn to compute odds. Students will be introduced to mean, median, and mode.

We use technology every day in this class.
Grading is not about a number; but instead, is an assessment of what the student learned about the curriculum being taught.
Formative Assessments: 50%
The average of all Formative Assessments will be counted as 50% of your six weeks grade.
Tests will fall every Friday.
Summative Assessments: 50%
The average of all daily work [Summative Assessments] (Drills/DCR, homework, and assignments) will be counted as 50% of your six weeks grade.
Make Up/ Late Work will have a 50% of the value of the assignment (unless a legitimate illness).
Missing Assignments are automatically assessed at a score of 0
A  9000  Excellent 
B  8089  Very good 
C  7079  Satisfactory 
D  6069  Inconsistent 
E  059  Unsatisfactory 
* The student should be prepared to turnin the homework and other assignment(s) upon returning to school

Bathroom Policy:
If you have to go to the bathroom, you must raise your hand and ask to do so. You must sign the Sign In/Sign Out notebook and get a pass before you leave the room (one boy and one girl at a time). You will not be allowed to leave the room during the first 10 minutes or last 10 minutes of a period. You will not be allowed to leave during the 1^{st} and 6^{th} periods.
I firmly believe that most people can be successful in school and that the amount of hard work, dedication, and sacrifice is what separates those who are successful from those who are not.
If you are absent, you want to get the assignments and notes as fast as you can. If you can, call your classmates and ask them for the assignments. If you can’t call anyone, you should ask your classmates for the work in the morning on the day that you get back.

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” – Colin Powell
A serious attendance problem often begins with a few unexcused absences.
All the research studies carried out show that dropout patterns were linked with poor attendance,
Every day counts!
There is no substitute for being present.
Student Code of Conduct – Laredo Independent School District
“For any class missed, the teacher must assign the student makeup work based on the instructional objectives for the subject or course and the needs of the individual student in mastering the essential knowledge and skills or in meeting subject or course requirements.”
“The student will be responsible for obtaining and completing the makeup work in a satisfactory manner and within the time specified by the teacher.”
“A student who does not make up assigned work within the time allotted by the teacher will receive a grade of zero for the assignment.”
In my teaching blog, you can find the explanations of all the topics of the math 7th program. There are also hundreds of videos with readymade lessons and more than 1000 interactive quizzes with extensive practice questions to practice the different type problems corresponding to math 7th.
In the winter season, it is common for some students to become ill and miss class. Taking this into account, in October, November, and December, we will cover the theoretical part of all the topics that we will study in the winter season.
If any of you get sick and cannot attend class, please let me know and I will indicate the topics and videos you should study in my blog, and the corresponding the interactive worksheets, drills, and exercises you should do. If you have any additional questions I will gladly answer them via Skype.
