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 32yearold 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 testday
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
9weeks grade.
Quizzes: Students will
have a quiz on all nontest 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 9weeks. 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:
Thank
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
