Course Description:  
We will be using Saxon Math Program Level 2, Promethean board calendar activities, flash cards, math games, and math manipulatives.  This course is designed to provide a foundation in number sense, problem solving, algebra, geometry, measurement, statistics, and data collection.

Learning/Developmental Goals:
This course is designed to meet Kansas state standards for 2nd grade math.  Kansas state standards may be found at:

Learning Outcome:
The student will demonstrate mastery of the state standards using formal and informal assessments along with teacher observation.

Grading Policy:  
Daily Assignments are graded and students are required to correct them until they are        without errors.  Percentages are only placed on tests.

Grade Scale:
A    100% -  91%
B      90% -  82%
C      81% -  73%
D      72% - 64%
F       63% & below

Make-Up Work:  If an absence is excused, you will have two days for every day that is missed to make up the work.

Homework:   Homework is not an optional assignment, therefore it is expected to be completed.  All homework is due the following class day.

Planner: Students will be expected to write all homework assignments and tests in the student planner daily.  Parents should read and sign the planner daily, even if there is no homework, as a form of communication.

Expectations:       Students are reminded to always try and do their personal best.  Students are also reminded that cheating will not be tolerated.
