Benjamin A. Friedman Middle School
Hello parents and students! Welcome to Mr. Almeida's page, dedicated to Mathtastics. Some of you may not know exactly what Mathtastics is so I will give just a very brief description of the class as well as expectations. Mathtastics is not a student's primary math class but an additional course to help enrich and reinforce the curriculum. This is an opportunity to approach the subject in a fun and less stressful way that will hopefully increase knowledge and fluency. Grading is almost entirely based on the effort put in to any given each class period. Each student will be provided with a notebook that will be corrected and graded daily. There will be several open notebook quizzes that will always come from only that day’s lesson. When questions involve computation the goal is not necessarily finding “the right” answer but the process and effort in trying to obtain it. If for some reason the student is having a difficult day and does not do the work in class they will be given the opportunity to make up the work as homework. In this case, the homework will have to be returned within one school day of issue.
Math Team Meets Every Monday from 2-3:30 pm!!!
