HOMEWORK Usually an assignment is given daily. Homework will be graded daily or randomly I will collect the assignments to review the work you should be showing. Any late assignment will be graded down 50% --no excuses/no exceptions. Need to be handed into box labeled Algebra II homework. –Late is being here, but not turning in the assignment that is due. –Not turning in work the day it is due because of an excused absence is not late. –School sports are not an excused absence for this purpose because you know in advance you will be missing class.
Homework Corrections Any homework can be redone for full credit if attached to the original work except for late work. Corrections must have name and assignment on it also. It is to be turned into box labeled Algebra 2 after it is attached to the front of the original assignment.
TESTS Approximately given every 3 weeks. These will be at the end of each unit. A test can be retaken up until the next unit test is given conditional upon the student making arrangements with the instructor one day prior to him/her wanting to retake the test. This is also at the discretion of the instructors schedule. Retakes can only be done before/after school, during lunch or during tutorial. They will not be given during regular class time.

CLASS PARTICIPATION This is based on what the instructor sees the student doing/acting in class. Instructor will put in the grade book on the average once every two weeks. Daily Work is also included in this grade. Daily work can not be corrected.
Your Grade Your final grade is a combination of Homework, Tests and Class Participation. Homework = 35% Tests/Quizzes/Projects = 55% Class Participation = 10%
Attendance 4 bonus points will be awarded for each week of perfect attendance and added to the homework scores.
Ipod/MP3 Players etc. Both ear pieces must be out and the player turned off while teacher is instructing the entire class. Once the assignment/test is given the ear pieces can go in, and the player turned on. Must turn off player and remove ear pieces when asking a question. The sound level must be low. If the instructor can hear it, it is way to loud. Not following the above rules, will result in loss of the privilege to have music devices in class.
