  • HOMEWORK

    Homework is a means for practicing math skills. 

    Students, you should do your homework each night and then check your answers on-line.  At the top of your homework,  write how many you got correct by yourself and then write specific questions about problems you still don't understand after looking at the answers.   Time will not be given usually in class to go over homework.  

     

    Not every homework assignment will be given a grade.

    A "T" means that the assignment was turned in, but not checked for accuracy or completion.  

    A blank means the assignment has not been entered yet. Blanks do not affect the course grade.

    An "M" means the teacher either did not receive the assignment OR the paper had no name and needs to be claimed so it can be entered.  An "M" score results in a score of "0" and is computed into the student's grade.

     

    Homework assignments that are graded will receive a:

    10 if everything is correct with work shown  down to a

    5 if 50% or more of the problems are incorrect or if the assignment was late.
