Additional Information about Math and Science Supplies
MATH

 Cover for math book
Your book cover can either be purchased or homemade. If you are going to purchase a stretchy book cover, the larger size
works better because it doesn't ruin the corners of the book. I also suggest the cover not be the same as any other books
you cover. It will be easier to find your math book in your locker if the cover is unique. Homemade book covers can be
made from grocery store paper bags, mall shopping bags, wallpaper, posters, or heavy wrapping paper. Some students
tell me that they'd rather buy a cover because they don't know how to cover a book with paper. Either way, be sure to
write "MATH" on the front of the book and also on the spine. Books must be covered at all times. If your book cover
falls off during the year, it needs to be replaced as soon as possible.


Paper for notes
We take notes all year and you must save your notes all year. Your notes can either be recorded in a one subject
notebook or on loose leaf paper in a one inch binder. If you are afraid of losing pages out of a binder, a one subject
notebook may be a better choice for you. If you struggle with organization, you may want a binder so all of your math
supplies are in one place.


Paper for problems
You also need paper to use when doing homework or classwork problems. You can either do problems in a one subject
notebook or on loose leaf paper. Just to be clear, you do not need 2 binders for math; your one binder can be divided
into 2 sections, one section for notes and one section for problems. If you decide to get 2 notebooks, be sure that you
remember to bring both to class each day. If you decide to get a binder, you may want to also purchase reinforcements.


Math folder
This folder will hold all graded papers for the entire term. At the end of the term, we reflect on our grades, find our
average, and then take all the graded papers home. I ask students to show parents all graded work, but then return it to
the math folder. Quizzes should be used to study from when preparing for tests. The math folder will also hold
worksheets from the chapter and VIPs (Very Important Papers). These should also be looked over when preparing for
tests. At the end of each chapter, we will clean out our folders together so students know exactly what to save and what
can be recycled. If you decide to get a binder, make sure you get a folder with holes and the folder can also act as the
divider between your notes and problems.


Pencils, pencils, and more pencils
Math should always be done in pencil. Make sure you have a couple with you at all times. You should also be prepared
with an eraser.



SCIENCE

Cover for science book **UPDATED**
Good news! We are getting new science books this year. The bad news is that we may only get one class and not one per
student. This is only bad news because the supply list you received with your report card said to buy a book cover for
science. If you are reading this and haven't gotten a cover yet, then hold off buying one. Students will be very happy to
know that the science books will not be going home for homework assignments (lighter backpacks!) and they won't need
to carry it around during the day.


Science folder
This folder will hold all graded papers for the entire term. At the end of the term, we reflect on our grades, find our
average, and then take all the graded papers home. I ask students to show parents all graded work, but then return it to

can be recycled.

Colored pencils
We do a lot of projects throughout the year that require color. It does not matter the size of the package. Please make
sure that if you lose your colored pencils midway through the year that you purchase a replacement pack.
