Math requires discussion

The date given below for the homework is the day that it is assigned and the homework is due at the next class. If you have questions about the homework, you may see me at school, you may call me at school (042-234-5300 x422), or you may call me at home before 9:00PM (0423-62-4314). You also may send me an E-mail (dfincher@asij.ac.jp) or try me on AIM (Derrel Fincher) or MSN Messenger (DerrelFincher@msn.com).

The time you spend on homework should average (the mean) approximately one hour between classes. If you find an assignment is taking much longer than that, or if you need help, please give me a call. As 6th graders, you are responsible for getting your homework done or finding resources to help you do it. And remember, a resource can be another student.

If you are finding that your homework is taking much less than an hour, you should be working on challenges. See me and I will help you select them.
