    Assignments/Homework Policy

    Homework is an essential part of practicing mathematics at this level. homework will be assigned pretty much every day. In order to receive full credit, assignments must be ready on time with all work complete. Late work will be accepted one day late for partial credit. During online learning assignments will be accepted late according to district policy. It is the student’s responsibility to show me any late work. Any late work turned in outside of the established times will be graded at the teacher’s discretion.

     

    Electronic Devices

    Cell phones, mp3 players, or any other electronic device will not be used during class, unless advised by the teacher for an activity. These devices are a distraction for students and my experience is that they drastically diminish student performance when used in classrooms for nonmathematical work. Classtime is not to be used for surfing instagram and TiKTok.  TDevices may be confiscated and kept until the end of the period / day if they become an issue in class.

     

    Materials

    Students are expected to come to class prepared with materials necessary for learning, including:

     

    Paper / Pencil

    Graph paper

    Glencoe Student Book

     TI 84   graphing calculator (TI-84 calculators can be checked out through the bookstore OR you can purchase one if you prefer. If you choose to purchase your own TI-84CE is the preferred edition)

     Chromebook (supplied by bookstore)

    Tutoring and Extra Help

    Please sign up for the REMIND account which is a safe and secure way for me to send text messages (or emails) to students. Parents and Students both should sign up. You will receive homework reminders, exam reminders, hints and words of encouragement. Text the @message below (depending on class period) to the number 81010. Be sure to include the @ symbol. There is an app you can download for your phone if you so desire. Please register and sign up yourself and your student on the remind program today.

     

     

    My Classroom will be available most lunch times for test remediation and homework help. Please let me know if you plan on coming in. All other tutoring should be had during school tutoring hours in the library (TBD).
