Homework Page

Homework is a vital part of a student's growth.  I encourage them to try their best and to ask for help when needed.

Please contact me at polleres@mansfieldct.org or at 860-429-9341 ext 7199 if you have any questions.

 Mathematics  

We want to develop confident practitioners. 

Click here for nightly assignments/weekly assignment sheet.

  • Students must come prepared to each class with a pencil, textbook, binder/graph paper, workbook, and a willingness to work.
  • Homework is assigned every night and checked every class.  Students will lose points for late homework, but are encouraged to do it, even if it will be late!  
  • HW hints are available online, but are not a substitute for trying on your own.
  • NOTE:  A parent guide is available online.  This link also provides access to additional problems for practice. There is a helpful introduction as well.

 

Social Studies

The 7th grade social studies website has unit assignment pages as well as many interesting for students to explore.  

Click on the unit to research interesting topics about that culture.

See below for specific assignments.

We also encourage students to be aware of current events around the world.
