    Expectations for Student Behavior/Classroom Management

    Classroom rules are based on three principals: courtesy, cooperation, and mutual respect. No student has the right to disrupt the learning of others.

    1. Arrive on time to class and be ready to learn.
    2. Raise your hand if you have a question or comment. Please do not speak when someone else is speaking in the room.
    3. Do not bring food or gum to class.
    4. Do not leave your seat unless directed to do so.
    5. Be kind to your peers.
    6. Please push your chair in when you leave the room.


    Homework Policy

    The completion of homework is a very important part of establishing good and consistent study habits. Homework provides the practice that is needed to be successful in mathematics.

    1. If a student is absent, all missed notes, assignments and tests must be made up as soon as possible.
    2. Homework must be completed and brought to class on time. Homework may not be made up at a later date for credit.
    3. If steps are required to obtain the solution to a problem, they must be written out neatly.


    Grading Procedure

    The following items will be considered in determining the grade for each quarter.

    1. tests
    2. quizzes
    3. class work (prepared/attitude/participation)
    4. homework


    Extra Help

    Extra help is always available during lunch.


    Communication with Parents

    We are dedicated to developing a sense of responsibility in our students in both behavior and academic performance. Part of this responsibility includes open communication among students, parents, and teachers.


    Students should write down all homework assignments in their SMS one note assignment planner on a daily basis. Homework assignments, upcoming tests, and grades will also be posted on Infinite Campus.
