Homework Rules

Here are some reminders:

  • If you do not have your homework the day it is due, you will receive a zero (0%) and a note home informing of the grade. 
  • If you are absent the day the homework is due, you must give it to me the day you return.  I will not ask you for this work.  If you do not turn it in, you will not receive a note but will notice a 0% when I enter grades.  
  • If you are absent the day the homework is assigned, you have equal number of days to complete the assignment as you were absent.  It is YOUR responsibilty to find out what it was, and get any worksheets assigned.  They are always in the extra worksheet box.  I will not ask you for this work.  
  • Absent work will only be accepted if you are not in school for one of the four (4) acceptible reasons as found in the student handbook. 
  • All answers must be written in complete sentences.  Always and forever.   Incomplete sentences will be marked wrong even if the part of a sentence that is there is part of the correct answer.  Always.  
  • If there is no room on the front of a worksheet to write your answer (a line to fill in) your answers go on the back.  They do NOT go on looseleaf  
  • Answers may never begin with a pronoun: he, she, it, they.  
  • Answers may never begin with "because", or worse, "cause".  
  • There must be a subject and a verb in your sentence.  
  • When writing, unless the question asks you to do some caluclations, numbers should be written out. 
  • Correct--"There are seven electrons in an atom of nitrogen." or "There are seven (7) electrons in an atom of nitrogen."
  • Incorrect-- "There are 7 electrons in an atom of nitrogen."
