• Mrs. Miller 6th Grade Math Lab Syllabus

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I hope that you had a great summer and that you are ready to get to work. I’m really looking forward to working with you this year! I know the year will go smoothly.


    Course Description

    This year we will be focusing on learning these skills.

    • Integer Operations and Graphing
    • Operational Fluency
    • Proportional Reasoning
    • Multiple Representations
    • Algebra
    • Geometry
    • Statistics
    • Finance
    • STAAR Review and Rational Numbers



    We will be focusing on using technology as a tool to enhance understanding of more complex mathematical topics. 


    Classroom Expectations

    1. Students will arrive to class on time and ready to learn.
    2. Students will be prepared for class by having the necessary materials.
    3. Students will respect everyone in the classroom
    4. Students will be responsible for their learning and participation in classroom activities.




    Warm-ups will be completed at the beginning of class.



    Daily work                                                                  30%

    Quizzes                                                                     30%

    Tests/Projects                                                           40%

    Each Student is expected to keep all papers in his/her notebook until nine weeks averages are given. Your notebook will be your written record of what you have done in this course and will be the main way to study for tests and quizzes, so take good care of it.


    How to Improve a Failing Grade

    If you make below a 70 on any assignment, you will do corrections to bring the grade up to a 70. Corrections must show all work. Just changing the answer will not get you credit. You must show the proper steps to solve the problem in order to get credit.



    I will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 7:50-8:20. 


    Parents, please encourage your son or daughter to come in for help when needed.



    I am always willing to talk to you concerning your child’s progress. Please e-mail me at mmille@neisd.net. You can also call the office (356-3200), and I will contact you as soon as possible. 


    Make Up Work

    When you are absent, you are responsible for all work missed. You may look on your assignment sheet to see what was done for that day. You may need to work with a partner to get notes or an explanation of missed work. Feel free to also see me before or after school for an explanation of what was missed. If you miss a quiz or a test, you will need to make it up outside of class time. You have one day for each day absent to complete the work missed unless given special permission by me.


    Final Thoughts

    The more actively engaged a student is in class, the better chance he or she will have of having a successful year.  Stay positive – it’s going to be a great year!!!
