This is the course handbook I pass out to students on the first day of my Algebra II class, although it could be used for almost any math class. You probably won't want to use what I have word for word, but I am sure you will pick up a few ideas for your own classroom.
First impressions are very important. This document shows my students immediately that I am organized and that I mean business. It also helps them feel at ease because they learn very quickly exactly what is expected in my class.
Included are my classroom rules and procedures as well as some formulas for success that I discuss with the children. New teachers looking for something to pass out to students the first day should DEFINITELY check this out.
