**Welcome to our class!! We solve problems here. :)**

**The end-all-be-all goal is for students to master key skills and concepts so that mathematical problems can be solved.**

More and more, students need to be able to choose key skills required and then apply them to problems.

More and more, students need to be able to choose key skills required and then apply them to problems.

**When students...**

*voluntarily and without prompting...*

**appropriately use mathematical vocabulary,**

add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers, decimals, fractions, and negative numbers...

apply order of operations and negative rules,

appropriately set-up and apply proportions,

properly "show work" when solving equations and inequalities,

know and understand the parts and purpose of formulas, as well as appropriately apply them, etc.

**EASILY!**

QUICKLY!

ACCURATELY!

and perhaps most importantly...

CONFIDENTLY!

...you'll know you're on the road to success.

No sticker can ever replace the feeling of independently achieving what has been hard to learn.

If you have to really think or don't know what to do, we have more work to do. :)
