Student's Role and Responsibilities: 

1)      Be on time!  Tardiness disrupts the learning process and causes you trouble.

2)      Be prepared!  Bring your materials (binder, paper, pencils, homework, and book) with you daily when you come to class.  Be in your seat with all necessary materials when the bell rings.

3)      Be attentive!  Be ready to ask and to answer questions on the material and stay on task!

4)      Be organized!  Keep all handouts, notes and assignments in notebook and in chronological order.

5)      Be present!  If a student is absent for any reason, he/she is expected to make up all missed work.  It is the student’s responsibility to see the teacher about missed work.

6)      Be involved!  Participate in all class activities.  ***Math is not a spectator sport.***It’s like anything else in life, “you get out of it what you put into it”

1. Food and drink are permitted as long as it does not distract from learning and is cleaned up entirely.

2. No electronics are allowed during class time. (See Student Handbook)
