Homework is an essential part of learning in math, and it is very important that students
complete homework regularly in order to understand and apply the new concepts. They
are assigned every day (with few exceptions), and they are due at the beginning of the
following class period. Students must show work to receive full credit. One class day
late will be accepted for half credit.
Homework grades are determined as follows:
o All problems attempted with work shown: 5 points
o Half or more problems attempted with work shown: 3 points
o Less than half of problems attempted or no work shown: 0 point
Group Work
Students will be working in groups many times in this class. The teacher will assign
students to their groups. Students are expected to contribute, cooperate, be on task, and
communicate within their groups.
Quizzes and Tests
Quizzes will be given throughout the unit. Occasionally, there will also be unannounced
pop quizzes. Tests will always be announced, and they will be given at the end of each
unit. Tests cannot be retaken. Therefore, it is very important that students prepare for
each test before they are given. Test grades will count twice as much as quizzes.
When there is an excused absence, it is the student’s responsibility to make up his/her
assignment(s). Make up homework, quizzes, and tests should be completed and turned in
within 2 school days from the date of the absence. Students are responsible for checking
the class website, homework board, and make-up folder for any missed assignments.
Class Notebook: Each student must maintain an organized 3 ring binder with classroom
materials, which include notes, classwork/homework, and quizzes.
Extra Help: I am available for extra help in the mornings from 8:15-8:50 on Tuesdays,
Thursdays, and Fridays.
