    Welcome to Ms. Gallo's class.

    Mrs. Gallo's class rules and information room #48

    Welcome to math class. My name is Mrs. Gallo. My expectations are that we are going to have a terrific year together. I have provided you with information for this class.


    ·Have something for papers and handouts(you can use part of a binder or folder from another class or just for math)

    · Calculator you do not need to have it for this class,  I will have a class set available 

    · Something to write with, a pencil and pen


    Organization is important. Keeping class handouts in a binder or folder will make it easier to keep organized. Students will be instructed what they will need to keep and what they will need to prepare for tests and quizzes.


    Each day there will be classwork practice. If classwork is completed, there will be no homework.

    Completing classwork is important .One of the key ways to be successful in math is “practice”. Classwork  counts as part of your accountability grade.  I will be looking for effort, did you do your best to complete all the problems. This means you, at least, attempted to solve the problems. Classwork  usually reflects a  sample of what we are covering in class or a previously taught skill. 

    Grading                                                                                                  Accountability
