Homework and Grading Policies

How You Will Be Graded...


  • Homework is very important for this class.
  • Each night you will get a worksheet or two to complete (it shouldn't take more than 30-45 minutes).
  • I will collect every assignment and correct it however, it will be given a grade based on completion. It is very important to stay on top of the homework because it will prepare you for tests and quizzes and lighten your load of studying.
  • Every homework will be given back to you the next day with corrections and we will go over any questions anyone has in class. 

Late Homework:

  •  Work handed in 1-2 days late will be graded for correctness and not completion.
  • Work handed in any later should always be completed and handed in eventually but will not be able to receive full credit.
  •  If you hand in work late, it may take longer for it to e returned to you.
  • If you are absent you will get an extension on homework (more details on this are in the Attendance and Absences tab).
