HOMEWORK

CHAPTER TEST AND QUIZ MAKE-UPS: Students will be able to retake each chapter test and quiz one time. Retakes must be completed by the posted date (usually 3 class periods after the quiz/test was given). In order to retake a quiz/test, students must correct the questions they missed on a separate sheet of paper and submit them at the time they wish to retake.

HELP OUTSIDE OF CLASS: Our math department offers math help from 2:45 to 3:30 every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This is a time for math students to come in and work on homework or get help from math teachers on concepts they don’t understand. I highly recommend doing your homework here especially if you are not quite grasping a concept. If you need to see me, I am available most days 30 minutes before and after school.

- Three ring 1-inch binder (I recommend having a binder used only for math)

- Set of colored pencils (the smallest set will work great)
- Calculator (I recommend the TI-30 but anything with a Pi button and a square root button will work)
