1. Attendance: It is very important to attend class every day. Although you will not lose points for absences, your grade will definitely be affected.
2. Make Up Work:
a. If you miss a quiz or test you will be expected to make it up.
b. If you miss notes you should see a classmate to get them or talk to me.
3. Readiness: You must be in the classroom on time with all of your supplies ready. You may not be permitted to retrieve your materials and the like from your locker.
4. Do Now:
a. Something new this year is what I call the ‘Do Now’ work. As soon as you enter the room you’ll find the ‘Do Now’ section and the work to be done at the top left section of the blackboard, unless otherwise specified.
b. You’ll be given 5 minutes to finish the work in a loose leaf.
c. Credit for this will be applied to the Homework
a. Homework is usually checked at the beginning of class and should always be done in the notebook unless otherwise specified.
b. Homework should be submitted on time. There is no such thing as a late homework. Late homework is tantamount to ‘no homework’.
