    doing math

    • Hello and welcome to 8th grade math class! 🖐
    • The best way to reach me is by email at amcwalters@htsdnj.org.  You should expect a response within 24 hours during the week and on Monday morning if your email is sent on the weekend. 
    • This is my fifth year at Reynolds and I am looking forward to getting to know you this year where together we will talk about how math affects us and how we use math in everyday life. 
    • I expect math learners to be prepared with a binder, paper, pencil/eraser and a "can-do" attitude.  

    ATTENTION Parents/Guardians: 

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

    2. 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 "0".  

    3. 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 "0" is removed.
