Homework Daily homework should take between 20 and 40 minutes (some shorter, some longer). Homework is not graded, but checked for completeness. Math is not always an answer, but a thought process, and sometimes the work turned in might be methods you tried that didn’t necessarily work, or questions you might have to get further in the problem. All homework problems must be attempted, with proof shown, in order to get full credit. Any incomplete homework assignment will be given at most half credit. Homework will be considered late if not received at the beginning of class. Late homework is NOT accepted for credit; however, it should be completed to practice. Homework answers will be posted and/or gone over the next day. A 100% in homework should be your goal for each marking period.
Absences Remember that math concepts build daily. The more you are absent the more you will miss. All missed work must be made up. When you are not here….we are! Check the website. Complete your missed work. Try to have work upon your return. Late work must me shown to me for credit. Please make arrangements to stay after school if you missed a test or Quiz
