Daily / Homework Assignments:
In my class, grades will be taken from morning Bell Work, Homework, and Participating in class activities.
will consist of 3-5 problems either from material you’ve already seen or
previewing new items in the days to follow.
It will be graded on completion, since we will go over every problem we
will be assigned throughout the week.
Just like most things in life, to truly be good at it you must
practice. Homework will be graded on one
of two criteria: either 1) is the entire assignment finished. Again you can't master math unless you
practice, or 2) did you solve the problem and arrive at the correct answer.
This doesn't mean simply putting "x = 6", but showing me how
you arrived at "x = 6".
absent, it is your responsibility to get any assignments you have missed.
assignments are due the day specified in class; however, no make-ups/redos will
be accepted after the end of the 9 weeks in which they were given.
Throughout the week, there will be times where I ask the class questions and we discuss what we've just learned. This is not limited to, but includes working problems on white boards, discussing why this step is right or wrong in a problem, or simply explaining how you arrived at your answer so that other students may benefit from you knowledge. Participation can be as simple as looking at the speaker or answering a question. Participation is not laying your head down, working on other assignments, or playing on your phone.
The math department discourages late work. It is important that students complete every assignment in a timely manner so that they can move in to the next concept. Should an extenuating circumstance arise, the teacher may deal with it on an individual basis.
