My great concern is not whether you have failed to meet your goals,
but whether you are content with that failure.      ~ Abraham Lincoln


When students are mad at the superintendent, or the principal, or some new rule, they may say,
 "We can't all be punished!" But, of course, that's not the case.  To see what one school district in Ohio did, read this.

The Pythagorean
Theorem!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEW YORK   Danica Keller has a message for girls: Cute and smart is better than cute and dumb.

McKellar, who played Winnie on the 1990s TV show "The Wonder Years," is coming out with a book, "Math Doesn't Suck," to encourage girls to get into math.

Danica says, "When girls see the antics of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, they think that having fun being attractive also means being dumb and irresponsible," the 32-year-old McKellar.

"But I want to show them that being smart is cool," she said. "Being good at math is cool. And not only that, it can help them get what they want out of life."

McKellar should know. The actress once struggled with the subject around the seventh grade, but a teacher helped her through. McKellar eventually majored in math in college.

The book includes tips to avoid mistakes on homework, ways to overcome test-day anxiety and profiles of three beautiful mathematicians.

What Do You Want To Do
This School Year?


If you want try and retry until you learn how to do your math, work in groups so that you understand, be in a class where no one disrupts you or is obnoxious, then my class is for you!

if you want to be in charge of your grade, if you want to be a part of a team and not get in any trouble, if you want to pass the Algebra I SOL b/c you worked so hard that you beat it.......then I'd love for you to be in my class!! 

If you want those things and you have me for a teachers, then  you're going to have a lot of fun this coming school year!!!!!

But if you're looking for the easy way out, shortcuts, a passing grade by doing very little, if you want to sleep in class, if you like to put your own entertainment ahead of your classmates' grades, if hard work is something that you cannot tolerate, if you're expecting the teacher to pass you if you get close ........then my class isn't for you.  I recommend you get your schedule changed ASAP!

Mr. Houser's formula
for making life easier:

a) stay in school until you have some way of making a living
b) THEN get a job & save $
c) THEN get married
d) THEN have babies

When you do these things out of order, life is so so much harder!  And how do you think rich people got rich and stay rich?  They and their parents followed the formula above!

If you could ask you baby, "Do you want to be born to a mom who's 16 years old?", what would it say?

Just the sight of a bulldozer makes you want to sing, doesn't it?

How Students Will Be Graded In 08 - 09!!

Homework: Homework will be assigned every day. I'm saying, students will have HW due every day. There will be very little time to do any work in class. When it is completed, I will mark it "on time," or "one day late," or "two days late," etc. However, students get 5 points EC for each school day HW is done early. HW will be gone over in class. I will work any problems that students have questions on. All the HW that a student does will be turned in on test day as a package. HW counts as 10% of a student's 9-weeks grade.

Quizzes: Students will have a quiz on all non-test days (except for 3rd period, which will have quiz every other day). Quizzes will cover the HW that we just went over in class. I will grade quizzes and return them to the students THE NEXT DAY, guaranteed! If a student is unhappy with a quiz grade, he may take it over as many times as he wishes.........and the final grade will be the average of the best two! There is a one week deadline to take quizzes over, so students can't procrastinate.

Tests: Students will have a test approximately every 2 weeks. Therefore, students will probably have four tests every 9-weeks. Tests are long and hard! They will take about an hour or more. But, if a student is unhappy with a test grade, the same rules apply as with a quiz........he/she may take it over and the final test grade will be the average of the two.

Mr. Houser:
T
hank you for everything you have done for [my daughter] this year! You helped her understand and enjoy Math this year and have truly made a HUGE difference in her life. YOUR PATIENCE AND YOUR ABILITY TO CONNECT WITH THE STUDENTS ARE JUST A COUPLE OF THE REASONS SHE HAS DONE SO WELL IN MATH THIS YEAR.....THANK YOU
