Homework

The number one key to success is consistently and thoroughly do the classroom problems and activities as instructed. Also, do your homework assigned without depending on "hints".
    Late assignments are accepted for partial credit (which means at best 75% of the point value of the assignment if turned in well done the next day).  A late project will result in 10% reduction in point value per day that it is late.  You have until the end of the school day of the unit/chapter test to get late assignments and/or projects into me.  Otherwise, it is a zero. 

    If you need help with your homework, I am available before school starts from 7:35 to 8:05 am almost every school day. Also, I am usually available to help students during lunch. 

    Grading Scale

    100% = A+                 87-89% = B+              77-79% = C+                    67-69% = D+

    93-99% = A                 83-86% = B                 73-76% = C                     63-66% = D

    90-92% = A-                80-82% = B-               70-72% = C-                     60-62% = D-

                                                                                                      59% or below = E
