If your child participates, he or she must sign a contract promising that he or she will be doing the problems completely independently. Parents must also sign the back side of the contract certifying that their child is using only his or her thinking.
Problems are assigned on Monday. Students may work at their own pace. Completed work is due at the end of the week. Please note that I am not expecting students to get all the problems correct. Some are quite challenging. These problems are designed to stretch their thinking and hone their problem solving skills. *** Please reinforce with your child that the problem review sessions are a privilege. Children must be respectful and engaged in the math. It is not a social time. Children who are not following these expectations will be given 1 warning. If a child continues to disrupt the group, the child will not be allowed to participate.
