5. Two marble composition notebooks (No spiral notebooks) for Science Class

Homework Poicy: Homework is given approximately 3 days a week in math. Students are required to try each problem and defend their answer by showing their work. If students do not complete the assignment on the day it is assigned they are given a detention slip that gives them the option of completing the assignment for the next day or staying for after school detention to complete the assignment. Students are responsible for correcting their homework in class then keeping 10 homework assignments in their homework section of their notebook. After the 10th assignment I will collect the corrected homework and students receive a test grade for the homework they have completed and corrected. Practicing math concepts provides students the opportunity to become more proficient in math. Daily homework is not given in science. Students will be assigned one current event summary each nine weeks. Students will also have opportunities to select and complete projects for some of the topics we cover in class.
Being Prepared: Each student takes part in a program called Being Prepared. Everyday in math and science class students can receive a grade of 100 for each of the following:
being in their seat on time
bringing their book and notebook to class
bringing a pencil to class
having their homework completed (if they have homework)
completing their journal entry
WOW! That is a lot of 100's they can get. Students could have a total of 25 - 100's a week. If they are not successful at doing one of the items they receive a grade of 0 for that item. It is very important that students are on task at all times.
