    Homework:

    Your homework score will include in-class work (bellwork) and homework scores.  Homework should be done in pencil.  Homework will be graded at the beginning of class.  You will grade your own with a red/black pen.  It will be collected and recorded by me at a later time and then give back to you.  If you miss a day, you are responsible for getting the notes and the assignment.  For late work and excuse absence policies, see procedure/routines.

     

    Final Thought:

    I am here to teach you about math.  I am also here to help you through math.  Do not be afraid to ask for help and do not wait until you are completely lost.  You will not learn anything if you do not ask about it.
