Homework Page

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

Please contact me at polleres@mansfieldct.org or at 860-429-9341 ext 7308 if you have any questions.

 Mathematics  

We want to develop confident practitioners. 

  • Students: Need some help?  HW hints are available online
    •  Learning Logs are a critical tool for checking understanding.  They can be written on this or on paper to be passed in.
  • Here is the math Open House presentation
  • Here is the advice last year's students shared.
  •  Parents:  Are you looking for ways to help your child with his/her math homework?  A parent guide is available online.  This link also provides access to additional problems for practice. There is a helpful introduction as well.
  •  Homework is assigned every night and checked every class. Students' assignment sheets are stamped to indicate completion.
    •  Late homework is accepted, with a lower grade.
    •  Students must come prepared to each class with a pencil, textbook, graph paper, toolkit, and a willingness to work (and even struggle a bit!).

 NOTE:  Nightly homework is listed on students' weekly assignment sheet that is distributed and collected on Mondays.

Social Studies

The 7th grade social studies website has many interesting sites for students to explore and will also have links to assignments and review resources.  

Click on the unit to research interesting topics about the culture / time period we are currently studying.

See below for specific assignments.

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

Please consider participating in HISTORY DAY!  It is an awesome opportunity!      

** Learning Logs should be written directly into Toolkits during my leave. **
