Accelerated Mathematics Online Program Information (ACCMATH)
You need to master approximately 2-3 Accelerated Math Objectives per week, beginning at the onset of the school year and culminating at the conclusion of the school year. This will end up being between 60-90 objectives mastered depending on the mathematics class you are in. Use your normal PowerSchool user name and password to login to the program.
Accelerated Math helps you to practice and master the math skills that we are learning in class. By providing feedback and opportunities to re-mediate, the ACCMATH program helps you to grow both mathematically and scholastically. You will learn the importance of time management, perseverance, organization, self help and resourcefulness.
You will work on your ACCMATH practice in your advisory classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and optionally on Fridays. Each class is 30 minutes, so 1-1.5 hours of time is given to you each week. This should be more than enough time to meet the 2-3 objectives per week requirement.
You demonstrate proficiency for an objective (ex. Adding Rational Numbers) by scoring 75% or better for that objective on your ACCMATH practice. That objective then moves into the total testable objectives category. (If you would like to know how many objectives you have available to test on or how many objectives you have mastered, this information can be found on the Practice Summary Report located under the Progress Tab). That objective can now be tested on a Friday.
NO COMPLETED PRACTICES=NO TEST=NO OBJECTIVES MASTERED
On Fridays you will receive a test with up to 3 objectives on it. If you score 75% or better on each of those objectives you will have “MASTERED” those objectives and will have a 3/3 or 100% for the week’s requirement. You will find the total number of mastered objectives on your Practice Summary Report, this can be compared with the posted (in the classroom) current requirement to see what your grade is. We teachers are committed to keeping ACCMATH grades up to date on PowerSchool as well, so you can see your current ACCMATH grade at any time by checking your grades on PowerSchool.
Should you score poorly on your test, not reaching the 75% proficiency requirement you will need to make corrections to the test to demonstrate that you are now ready to take another test and then make arrangements with your math teacher to come during lunch to take another test, thereby making up the missed mastered objectives. This is the only way to catchup once you are behind.
It should be kept in mind that ACCMATH is a cumulative endeavor, it does NOT restart at the semester. You are required to master 2-3 objectives per week beginning at the onset of semester 1 and culminating at the end of the year in June. This averages out to be approximately 60-90 required mastered objectives. If you get behind it will negatively impact your grade over the course of the entire year. Work hard, use your advisory time wisely, utilize the online support features, communicate with your math teacher and you will certainly find success!
- Students guess and do poorly on a practice.
- DON'T GUESS! Get help if you need it, use the online tutorial features or come in during lunch time.
- Students aren't completing practices weekly.
- Use your advisory time wisely and stay on task. A practice is designed to be completed in 20 minutes, you are given an hour and a half during advisory, this is more than enough time to get your ACCMATH done. Do a little bit extra at home if you have to.
- Students do poorly on the test and as a result do not master objectives.
- Use the practice as an opportunity to learn the skill so that you perform well on the test. Don't cheat yourself. Be responsible. Get the help that you need.
- Students don't get to take a test on a Friday due to absence.
- If you were absent, make arrangements to come in during lunch time to make up the test.
- Communicate with your math teacher, make arrangements to come during lunch time to do extra/make up tests. Complete extra practices. You can catch up with hard work and determination.
