- Homework 30%: To master anything, you must practice. Homework is your practice. Homework will be assigned daily and will be due at the beginning of the next class period.- Tests 50%: There will be a test after each unit. There will be approximately 3 tests per term. If you are truant or caught cheating you will get a zero for that test. THERE ARE NO TEST RETAKES!- Quizzes 20%: Quizzes will be given periodically. The lowest 2 quiz scores will be dropped.
Late Assignments: Late work will be accepted before the unit test.
End of Term: End of term work will be due on a designated date before the end of the term. Any work turned in after that date will not be accepted for a grade.
Cheating: If you are caught cheating, you WILL BE GIVEN A ZERO. Having your cell phone OUT during an assessment or quiz is considered cheating. I highly encourage working together and believe it is beneficial, but there is a difference between working together and cheating.
Absence Policy: I support the school’s attendance policy. See student handbook for details.
Tutoring: I will usually be available before and after school everyday (not Monday afternoons) and strongly encourage students to come to me if any extra help is needed or use other resources. Tutoring is also available after school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in the math lab from 2:30-3:30.
