You will have homework every day, about 20min. Each homework is worth 2 points. If you don’t have the homework when you come to class, you must fill out and sign a late homework slip. You have one day to make it up and you will get 1 point. If not shown, you will not get credit for it. Homework that is collected will be announced and graded on a different scale. The purpose of homework is to practice what we have seen in class. One missed homework: student will be given a warning Second missed homework: the teacher will call home Third missed homework: student will be assigned a detention Homework policy
