Homework: Homework is assigned daily and due at the beginning of class the next class day unless otherwise noted. Showing work on HW is important. When steps are required to solve a problem, they must be shown to receive full credit. Late homework will not be accepted unless it is due to an absence. Homework 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.

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!
