Policies and Procedures
Students are responsible for the following:
- To be in class seated and begin work before the bell rings.
- To be prepared for class with a notebook and pen or pencil.
- To actively be a part of the class by taking notes, offering solutions, asking questions, and presenting board work. Asking questions is especially encouraged.
- To maintain the cleanliness of the classroom.
- To complete homework assignments on time. This means by the next class after homework has been assigned unless otherwise stated.
- To discuss the cause of any absence with the teacher. When there is knowledge of a future absence, the teacher should be informed before the absence.
Final grades will be based on the following:
Class work: 20%
Online Assignments: 15%
Though exams will focus on the most recently covered material, students are responsible for each topic covered the entire semester. There usually will not be a review before an exam. Exams will be given at least once a marking period.
There will be one quiz every week in which you do not have an exam. Quizzes are two to four questions and should take 10 - 15 minutes to complete.
Homework is assigned regularly and is due the following class unless otherwise noted. Late homework will not be accepted. In the case of an absence, the student will be given until the class after his or her return to hand in missed assignments. See me should the absence be an extended one (three or more days).
All homework should have a heading at the top of the page that includes the students’ name, the date, and the homework number. If it lacks any of these it, credit will not be given.
You are expected to have a notebook and a writing utensil at every class. It is recommended that students have a quad ruled (graph paper) notebook. These are available at Staples, Amazon.com, or other places where school supplies are sold.
You should not expect be supplied with pens, pencils, or paper. During exams sharing calculators is not permitted.
Graphing calculators: Some topics require the use of a graphing calculator. While a calculator will be provided in class, one will not be provided to take home. All students are therefore encouraged, but not required, to purchase their own graphing calculator or find appropriate software for their home computer, smartphone, or tablet. The Texas Instruments TI-83 and TI-84 models are recommended.
Students are expected to maintain a notebook and attempt all problems assigned in class. Students are also expected to ask questions and attend tutoring if they are struggling.
Technology is an integral part of all aspects of modern life. This class is no different. All assignments and notes will be posted online. Many assignments will require a computer and internet connection. Students who do not have a computer and internet at home must make use of the computers available at LoMA, a public library, or other accessible location.
1. No personal electronic equipment is allowed in class
Cell phones, music players, smart phones, iPads and other tablets, and all electronic equipment are not permitted in school. If you have your electronic device out during class, I will confiscate it for the remainder of the period. Charging electronic devices during class is also prohibited. If the student refuses to relinquish the electronic device, a pink slip will be written on the incident and the parent / guardian will be called.
2. No food or drink except water allowed in class
Food includes candy, gum, sunflower seeds, and any other edible substance not for medical purposes.
