Homework is generally given everyday (except Fridays).  If a student completes the homework on time, it is a 100.  Homework is not graded based on  how many right or wrong.  This is where I want the mistakes to happen, if he/she tries, credit will be given.   

 ANY graded paper can be made up AS MANY TIMES as a student would like to improve their grade.  They have until a chapter test to do this.  There is NO REASON any student should not receive a 100 on any and all papers. 

Any paper not handed in ON TIME will result in a 0.  This 0 cannot be made up. Also, any problems that were left blank cannot be corrected
