    I do not accept late homework or class work assignments. All assignments are due at the beginning of your scheduled  math class.  It is your responsibility to bring your assignments to class on time and complete. 

    Notes: You will be required to take notes in my class. The notes will be used as examples to help you complete homework, class work, and study for tests. If you are absent, you need to copy any missed notes from a dependable student when you return. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure you get missed notes.

    Homework: Homework is an opportunity for you to practice what you learned in class. It will be assigned every night, due the next time you are in class, and will be checked.  It is required that you write the problems and show your work and answer for each problem in order to receive full credit unless told otherwise. 

    Tests: Each test will consist of questions from the current standards being studied as well as from previously taught standards. 

    Absent: You have the number of days you are absent from class plus one to make up any missed homework, class work, or quizzes. After the allotted time a grade of zero (0) will be placed in the grade book.  Tests are the only exception. Missed handouts can be found in the folders on the wall.   IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE UP ANY WORK THAT IS MISSED.

    Grades: Major tests count 67% (2/3) of the 9 weeks average. Homework, daily work, class work, quizzes, etc… count 33% (1/3) of the 9 weeks average.

     

    Using the restroom and getting water are to occur between classes and not during class time.
     

    I am looking forward to a great year!!!!
