You will be expected to work diligently on any given assignment in class. You will be given plenty of time in class to complete your work; however, if you feel like you will not be able to finish it in class you will need to complete it for homework.
If homework is assigned or unfinished work was taken home you are responsible for turning it in ON TIME. If circumstances occur that do not enable you to get it in on time you will receive 5 points off per actual day not class period that it is not turned in.
Notebook paper (your preference for note taking)
Pen and Pencil
This course is designed to build concepts on top of each other. Any day that you are absent or out of class will most definitely put you behind. If you are absent or out of class for any reason please come to me before the next class period to find out what you missed. Very often the information started on one day will be continued during the next day; therefore, if you missed the first part you will not be able to understand or complete the second.
After returning to school, you will have two days to complete all missed work. I do want to caution you that many of the activities build upon each other and if you do not make-up some of the work before the next class period you will be even further behind. Make-up work not finished during the two days will only receive a maximum of 70%.
All student tardies will be handled in accordance with the school policy.
Place all personal belongings beside the wall.
Turn in homework, if assigned
Begin warm-up activity.
When work is completed, turn it in.
When the bell rings, I will dismiss.
All school policies will be enforced. In addition, the following guidelines are to be followed by all students at all time while in the classroom.
