OTHER THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Arrive in class on time go quickly and quietly to your seat and immediately check the board for the Warm-Up. Sharpen your pencil if needed and start on the assignment right away.

All assignments should be completed in pencil unless I tell you otherwise. Always write your name and the date, along with the assignment name / page on all work.

Homework will be assigned most nights, so please do it! It is necessary to practice Math skills in order to become proficient at them, and I strive to give you short, to-the-point assignments. Homework may be found on the class website which can be accessed at Page/4013 . Each homework assignment will be checked and/or graded.

Grades will be based on the following weighted scale:

Classwork and Class Participation - 15%

Tests and Quizzes: All grades will be posted on genesis within a timely manner, please check there for all grades and comments.

Things you should have with you at all times: your notebook, textbook and a pencil.

The Homework Website will help you with your responsibility to complete your work on time. Important reminders and due dates will also be listed daily on the website.

Late work is accepted for half credit. All missing assignments will result in a zero.
