Accelerated Math Live
Accelerated Math Live (A.M.) is our online homework program.
A blue note was sent home on September 12 for you to read and sign. A peach note was sent home on September 24 with further A.M. information, also to be signed.
Your child's A.M. goal for first quarter is to master a total of 26 objectives by 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 22.
In order to build good work habits and discourage procrastination, 4 grades will be recorded for Accelerated Math work during September and October.
14 mastered objectives by 3:00 p.m. Friday, October 4
Remember, we want your child to become an independent math learner. Please be an encourager, but resist the temptation to help too much. Thank you very much as we work in partnership for your child's success.
Three Different Ways Your Child Can Log In:
(1) Create a shortcut to the A.M. website on your computer desktop with this link:
(2) Go to Canvas (through ICT class) and use the A.M. link there.
(3) Go to the Gulfport School District web site at www.gulfportschools.org . Click on "Staff" (far right side) and then scroll to the very bottom of a long list of websites that will appear ... count up to third link from bottom ... "Renaissance Place" ... click on that and it takes you to the log-in screen for A.M.
Log-in names are FIRSTNAMELASTNAME (all CAPS, no space between names) and the password is a long number.

- The library has computers, and students can ask any teacher for a pass to the library to work on A.M.
- We also have 1 or 2 student computer stations in every major subject classroom where students can work during homeroom time from 7:40 to 8:00 a.m. (or in any class period when they finish their class work for a subject).
- Students who have an elective class of study hall or library class have daily opportunities to work on A.M. in the library on those computers.
- Elective teachers can be asked for a pass to the library during elective subjects.
- Mrs. Olson allows students to do A.M. as bell work in her ICT class.
- If a student has made a worthy effort to complete A.M. online at school and is not able to do so, the assignment can be printed out to be completed at home. After completing the assignment on paper, the student will log in at school to enter all of their answer choices one by one.
