Materials Needed: two spiral bound notebooks, loose leaf paper (for assignments), scientific calculator (with a fraction key), pencils (lots of them), and a strong willingness to think independently, learn from all possible resources, and work cooperatively with fellow students
Promptness: You must be in your assigned seat before the bell rings.
Consequences: 1st-warning, 2nd-break, 3rd and on-15 minutes of
detention each and contact home if too excessive.
Homework: Homework will be assigned and corrected daily. Homework will be worth up to 3 points and will be checked not only for correctness, but also for work shown. Points are taken off for lack of work shown, incomplete work, or late work.
Grading: 3 parts: homework, quizzes, and tests. Your grade is based on the percentage of total points you receive each quarter.

Detentions: You have 3 days to make up detention time. If it is not made up in that time, your time will double and I will contact home. You will then have three more days to make up the time and then it’s turned into the office.
