- Class begins when you enter the room. Please enter quietly and immediately get ready to work, placing on your desk only those items necessary for class.
- Bring all books, notebooks, supplies, and completed homework to class each day, You will not be allowed to return to your locker or another classroom for forgotten items. Pencils should be sharpened before entering the classroom.
- Listen to and think about everything said in class. whether by me or by another student. Take notes, ask questions and feel free to disagree. Respect the questions and answers of others; every student must feel comfortable to speak up or to ask a question.
- Any student or group of students can make arrangements to see me for extra help, usually after school. To stay, you must have a note signed by a parent or guardian giving permission to stay and stating the date and length of the stay.
- Students are expected to keep a math notebook and to take notes each day in class. Notebooks will be graded during the first and second quarters.
- Homework and Classwork
- Homework is due at the beginning of class, complete and carefully done.
- Homework which is complete and done with acceptable effort will receive a grade of 100%. Late work, including work done but left at home or in a
- locker, must be turned in as soon as possible but will receive a grade of 0%.
- Incomplete work will receive a grade of 50%. Finally, completed work which I require you to do over will initially receive a grade of 75%, when you return an acceptable paper, I will change the grade to 100%.
- Homework includes written work, reading assignments, memorization, longterm projects, and a regular review of your notes. Such work is to be done at home unless time is specifically given to work on an assignment in school. Any other written work being done in class will be taken away and given to the appropriate teacher. Any of my homework so taken will receive a grade Of 0%.
- Do all written work neatly in pencil on looseleaf paper, using a correct heading. Writing assignments may be done on computer or in pen. Paper torn from a notebook is not acceptable.
- Do careful work so as to avoid mistakes. When you do make a minor mistake, erase or draw a neat fine through the mistake and continue.
- We normally correct and discuss homework in class. Make corrections to your work in red (both the answers and the work leading to them), I will
- expect to see corrections made to all mistakes on homework papers. Ask in class about the problems you do not understand.
- It is your responsibility to make arrangements for all classwork and
homework missed due to your absence. This includes note-taking and tests.
I will not seek you out.
- When absent, use the Homework Hotline to find out about your assignments
and arrange to have the necessary books brought home to you.
- In general, after a one-day absence, Missing homework will be due on the
day after you return. If other arrangements are needed, you must make them
with me on the date of your return.
- For longer absences, you must see me on the day you return to make
arrangements for missing work.
- If you miss a test due to absence, you must see me on the day you return, to
be assigned a makeup date. Failure to see me will lower your grade for that
test. Makeup tests may be assigned outside of class time, including after
- Unannounced quizzes usually cannot be made up, but missing one will not
lower your grade.
