Mr. Karam Farag

After teaching five years in high school, this is my first year at Reynolds Middle School. I have taught Algebra1, Geometry, and Applied Math. I began college at Alexandria University and received a Bachelor of Mathematics!

I constantly try to learn new things and I love to watch soccer games in my free time.

 

Mathematics as an expression of the human mind reflects active will, the contemplative reason, and the desire for aesthetic perfection. Its basic elements are logic and intuition, analysis and construction, generality and individuality.

  • Welcome students, parents & guardians!

    I believe that all children are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. I will help my students to express themselves and accept themselves for who they are, as well embrace the differences of others. I'm here to support each student and help students to reach their potential .

    - Be Resilient. Never give up and ask for help.

     

     Course Description

    The ultimate goal of this course is to give the student a foundation for exploring and understanding algebra and geometry. Topics include the basic operations and properties of real numbers, measurements on a plane and in space, data analysis, linear equations, graphing, problem solving, functions and deductive reasoning.

     

    MATH BINDER

    • Students will set up their math binder with divider tabs in class at the start of the year. It should come to class daily, and remain organized throughout the school year. 
    • Your math binder will be home to all important course curriculum including do nows, notes, homework, and study guides.
    • Additional Resources: Use Clever to access our online Into Math program for further lesson materials.

     The District Grading Protocol

    1. Summative grades include tests and projects. Together, the assessments of this type count as 50% of the marking period grade.
    2. Formative grades include small tests or quizzes and minor projects and classwork.  Together, the assessments of this type count as 40% of the marking period grade.
    3. Independent practice grades include homework and most classwork. Together, the assessments of this type count as 10% of the marking period grade.

    Attention parents/ guardians:

    1. Please visit your child’s Powerschool Portal to view ALL upcoming due dates for assessments, projects and homework.

    1. Students will be given 1 WEEK to complete and submit a formative or summative assignment. Teachers will use their discretion about dropping points for late assignments.  If not handed in for partial credit after one week, the assignment will receive a Zero.

    1. Assignments that are not submitted on time will have a “0” place holder UNTIL the assignment is completed and submitted.  Once a grade is placed, the Zero is removed.
