    Mr. Duong
    Department / Grade: Math
    Hi!  My name is Mr. Duong.  I teach 8th-grade math.

    "Give a man a fish; he'll feed himself for a day.  Teach a man how to fish; he'll feed himself for a lifetime."   

      I believe in working with parents to prepare our young adults to be successful and independent individuals.

    The secrets to being successful in my math class and/or improve your math grade!
    1) Come and get help in the morning to get extra help

    - don't wait until the day of the test to ask for help - stay after the day you get lost.

    - I am available before school and after school upon request. 

    2) Complete practice assignments every night it is assigned

    - complete assignment

    - check answers during class.  

    - ask questions right away after checking for answers.

    3) Make quiz corrections

    - correct/complete any/all questions on quizzes (you'll get all the points back and learn from your mistakes!)

    - if you need more room use a separate sheet of paper and staple to quiz

    - turn in before chapter test is taken

    4) Retake tests

    - tests are retaken by Learning Target - students can retake 1, 2, ....all learning targets

    - retake tests are due at the end of the trimester (students who wait longer than two weeks tend not to improve their score)

    - retake test score replaces the old score only if it is better

    **Test Retake Procedures***
    1) Make test corrections (completed on the test or a separate sheet of paper)

    2) Complete retake test before or after school

    **MUST have the original test (corrected) and review assignment (completed) before retaking the test.
    “Law of Cumulation”
    Everything is practice,
    Practice accumulates,
    You become what you practice,
    Therefore: Be deliberate about what you choose to practice.
