I have one main classroom rule and that is to be respectful. Schools NO GUM POLICY. You will be sent to ISI for gum and given a time out referral. Repeat offenders will face further consequences. Schools NO DRINK POLICY. Please drink all Starbucks type drinks, Arizona Iced Teas, etc. at home or before the first bell. You will be asked to throw away these kinds of drinks when you enter the classroom.

Great resource if you are absent or need help on HW Check my website for daily HW assignments and test dates. Use the Weekly Assignment Calendar page to look up daily hw if you forgot to write it down in class. You can find digital copies of worksheets to print if you lost yours. Use the Notes and Help page for additional resources and powerpoints with notes and concepts that we are covering in class to use for extra support!

Grading 80% Assessment tests, quizzes, mathia, projects 20% Classwork homework, warmups, classwork Grade Book Check regularly. Very up-to-date! Missing work entered as 0 MI If due to absence, you need to grade and turn in

and it will be replaced with the full credit it would have earned If not due to absence, you can complete the assignment for partial credit before that unit Advanced Course Requirements This is an Advanced Class. It will have a rigorous pace and work load. You need to maintain an 80% or higher. If your grade falls below 80%, you need to seek help and actively work to raise your grade. If even after extra help, you struggle in the course, we may discuss a schedule change to better accommodate an appropriate level of math class Homework

Expect homework 4-5 days per week. It will usually take about 30 focused minutes to complete. Some days longer, some shorter If you dont understand a problem or assignment, you still must attempt the problems showing work and effort. This is what it takes to avoid no credit if you are really confused. On your homework, please show all of your work

and all of the steps we discuss in class/write in notes. Blank problem or No work =No points We will grade homework for accuracy in class daily. Some assignments are entered into the gradebook for completion credit and some earn points for accuracy.
