    Mr. Lowe’s 7th Grade Math Syllabus 2021-2022

    Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome back to school!  I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful summer and are excited about being in 7th grade.  I am happy to be back to school and hope you are ready for a great year.  I look forward to getting to know each of you and seeing you grow throughout the year. 

    It is my goal as a teacher to create a positive learning environment that allows each student to reach their full potential.  In order to reach these goals and for our classroom to run smoothly, there must be rules and procedures. Therefore, I have included a list of classroom rules and procedures for you to look over with your student.  If you have any questions, please contact me. Once again, I would like to welcome you back to school and thank you in advance for your support and cooperation.


    I have very high expectations for all students in my classroom.  I expect all students to come to class prepared each day ready to learn, and to be respectful of themselves and others in class.  This means students should arrive on time, have all of their supplies, assignments should be completed, and students should be prepared for tests and quizzes.  This also means that I expect students to come in for tutoring if they have questions or did not understand a concept we covered in class. If the students are not meeting these expectations, I will be talking with them individually and contacting home.


    Students are expected to bring the following supplies each day to class

    • Charged Chromebook
    • Wide-ruled paper
    • Math only spiral (Vocabulary/Notes)
    • Pencils (I do not keep any extra lead in my classroom)
    • One folder for my assignments only (Students will be required to keep up with graded papers in a Math only folder)


    Grading Policiy

    1. Nine Weeks Grades
      1. 60 % Formative: minimum of 4 at 3 weeks, 8 at 6 weeks, and 12 at 9 weeks
      2. 30 % Summative: minimum of 3 per 9 weeks
      3. 10 % Nine Week Cumulative Assessment
    2. Students may redo formative and/or summative assignments that are below an 80% and submitted on time. To be eligible to redo an assignment/assessment the student must attend a minimum of one remediation period or tutorial.
      1. The higher of the two grades will be recorded up to an 80.
      2. Students will have 5 school days from when the grade is posted to redo the assignment/assessment.
    3. Students shall have a time equal to days absent from class plus one day to complete all missed assignments.
    4. Cumulative Assessments will be given at the end of each grading period and will account for 10% of the nine-week grade. Nine-week assessments are not eligible for retakes.

    Campus Late Work Policy:

    Students may turn in an assignment up to 5 school days past the due the date. The following grade deductions will apply:

    1 day late = Maximum grade 90%

    2 days late = Maximum grade 80%

    3 -5 days late = Maximum grade 70%

    Absent Work

    If a student is absent, they are responsible for picking up their missing work.  If they have questions about the assignment, they can ask either a fellow student or me.  They will have a period equivalent to the number of days missed plus one to complete all of their make-up work.
