Expectations for all students

  1. Be prepared and take notes the day before the lesson.  Read through the posted notes the day before on Microsoft Teams.  This will help you actively participate in each lesson and have something to refer to for homework and tests
  2. Actively participate during all of every online lesson.  Attendance will be taken multiple times through out each lesson.  Be present for all, or you may be marked tardy.
  3. Complete all homework and show all your work on separate paper.  Homework is assigned on instruction days.  Homework assignments at are due on Big Ideas (submit your work!) by 8pm the next day along with a photo of your work posted in the assignment section on Microsoft Teams. No late work will be accepted.
  4. If a student is absent any day, then he/she has the number of days absent to make up the missed assignment (work can only be made up if the absence is excused).  The student will be responsible for getting the missed assignment; it is not the teacher’s responsibility.  Remember to watch the recorded lessons from the day absent, take notes, and message me for any help.
  5. If the student was absent for a test, they must take the test during the scheduled time.  There are no retakes for tests. Unless stated in a 504 or IEP.
  6. The teacher is available each instructional day during tutorial hours on Microsoft Teams for extra help

  4. Check online at for current or overdue assignments.

Class Rules and Expectations 



  1. Arrive on time and prepared
  2. Have a positive attitude
  3. Work hard
  4. Try your best


NETIQUETTE  (class network etiquette)

Although you might be accustomed to using forms of electronic communication, such as text messaging and chat, communicating during a lesson or group activity involves a slightly different set of skills and communication referred to as “netiquette.”  Netiquette covers a set of core rules for proper online behavior.

  1. Avoid using all capital letters as it can give the impression that you are shouting.
  2. Avoid offensive language or comments.
  3. Avoid personal attacks.  If you believe someone has sent a message that is a personal attack, resist the temptation to fire off a response.  Instead, request that your instructor resolve the situation.



  1. Student is signed into our Geometry class on Microsoft Teams within a minute of the class start time. 
  2. Immediately open the chat bar and say “hi”.  Turn on your video camera and turn off you microphone.
  3. Have all supplies you will need (i.e. pencils, pen, notebook, calculator,…) ready to go.  Put away all unnecessary electronic devices or other distractions.



  1. Take notes in a notebook or on any paper (keep your notes organized and in order).
  2. Ask/answer questions.  Use the “raise hand” button for help.
  3. Give feedback.
  4. Participate in the activity.
  5. Try out all problems the teacher has posted.



  1. Complete any exit tickets.
  2. Type “good bye” in the chat bar before logging off.




For several activities in this class, you will be asked to work with others; in addition, you are encouraged to form study partners and groups. However, any written work that forms the basis of your final grade in the class MUST be your own original work.

Do not plagiarize (copy, submit another person’s photo…).


This includes all tests and homework.  I will report any and all indications of academic dishonesty to our administration and counselors.  Should you have any questions regarding what constitutes "academic dishonesty" in this course, please contact me.
