MATH MAINTENANCE is very important in middle school math. Every week we will complete a maintenance sheet - students must make sure they are making corrections and asking questions when I ask, "Any questions?" At the end of the week, there will be a 5 question quiz on the maintenance sheet. I will choose 5 problems from the sheet and put them on the quiz. PLEASE encourage your child(ren) to study these sheets because maintaining math skills is essential in order for the students to do higher level math problems. We do go over EVERY problem!
