to bring to class every day
1 composition book (may need a second before the end of the year)
2 large or 4 small glue sticks*

Daily Work: Daily work will be given most class periods and will consist of classwork and occasional homework. Homework and any unfinished classwork is due at the beginning of class the next class day unless otherwise noted. Showing work is important. When steps are required to solve a problem, they must be shown to receive full credit. Late work will be penalized and will not be accepted more than 3 days after the due date. Exceptions may be made, but rarely and only for extreme situations as determined by myself or administration. In order to keep up in the class and have current averages in the gradebook, students must complete and turn in work in a timely manner. Daily work is randomly graded on completion, accuracy or not at all.
Quizzes: Quizzes will be both announced and unannounced. If you are absent for a quiz, it is your responsibility to make up the quiz before or after school before the deadline given. A grade of zero will be recorded for a missing quiz.
Test Grades: There will be 1 or 2 tests per six weeks. The test will be multiple choice and/or free response and will be from 30-45 minutes. In addition, students will be graded on their Interactive Math Journals at the end of each six weeks for an additional test grade. Occasionally, students will be given projects. All projects will count as test grades.

There will be someone in the math department available for tutorials each morning and afternoon with the exception of Friday afternoon. Please come in if you have questions! Tutorials may be mandated if necessary.
It is important that you spend the time you need to be successful. Find other students in your class and study with them. These groups can be very beneficial.
Let’s have a great year, GO CARDINALS!
