****Before registering for this class, students will need to complete a required placement test found here: https://www.sonlight.com/uploads/saxon_middle_placement.pdf. Upon completion, please email the test to the teacher for review. This will help to determine if students are ready for this class.****

Although class time with the teacher will consist of learning new concepts, reviewing missed homework problems, and practicing and applying learned math concepts, this class requires parental support. Parents will be responsible for the following: 1) Giving students daily fact sheets (except for Monday) and checking their work. 2) Grading homework upon completion – students will need IMMEDIATE feedback if they’ve worked a problem incorrectly, so they don’t continue to do so. 3) Proctor (NOT GRADE) tests every other week.

Required Materials: Saxon 6/5 – book, test booklet, and answer key for ALL (edition to be determined)

Supplies: notebook paper, pencils, eraser, 1″ binder with dividers
