Procedure- Absent work Check Haiku and get your weeks homework packet if you miss a Monday you are responsible to get late or missing assignments turned in ASAP! Make sure you see me at lunch or homework club if the lesson confuses you. All notes need to be copied from someone who you know took accurate notes in their notebook.

Procedure- Attention Do not talk while I am talking! I will request your attention, please be quiet right away –Remember ~ Listen and Silent are spelled with the same letters! If it takes longer I take the time from your passing time.
Procedure- Board Work When something is on the board when you arrive in class it should be done as soon as you enter the room (always do on your bellwork sheet for the week). Board work is part of your grade and is usually related to something we have recently discussed or challenging you in someway.
TARDIES!! You have three tardies to any hour before you will receive a detention. You should be on time you have plenty of time take care of your business and still get to class ON-TIME! If you have a pass to excuse you please make sure you hand it to me…Those do not count.
Procedure- HOMEWORK You will receive a packet the first day I see you during the week. It is due the same day one week later (the following week.) Bring it to class DAILY! – We may work on it in class, work on some problems together or ask/solve questions! Bring questions to class and we will go over it as a class Counts as weekly points and is graded on work shown and on what is done – EFFORT! Homework Checks typically be graded on right and wrong and usually through the Clickers or EXIT slips. You will correct all your own work in a pen once a week. Be prepared!
Procedure- HOMEWORK Homework helps on all quizzes and tests. If you do not do it you are loosing easy points and you are not setting yourself up for success.

We have projects to go with most units and those are usually 100 points as well and are a balance for a test if you do horrible. Quizzes – come often and are never a surprise they always have different point values. Homework checks – check understanding / accuracy and completion on homework assignments
Procedure- Quizzes Quiz Retakes: The word “Quiz” will be in the Powerschool title of any Formative Assessment that is eligible for re-take.
