CELL PHONES: Use of a cell phone in class is disrespectful to the teacher and sometimes to the whole class. If a cell phone is used in class, then you will be asked to leave class for the day. HOMEWORK: Homework will be assigned daily. Homework is there for two purposes, understanding the subject, and reinforcing the subject. After you understand something, you have about 24 hours to reinforce it before you will forget it. So don't wait to do the homework and don't just do the homework, understand it. Your homework represents your grade . You also need to review your past HW daily . You will forget what you have learned if you do not review it. Homework will be collected every day. Each homework collected is worth 2 points . If the homework is not complete, sloppy, or no work is shown, then you may receive partial credit. If you are late to class, then you cannot turn in your HW. Excuses for being late must come with undeniable proof . 2 points may not sound like much but the points add up to 56 points, almost a full test score. If you do not do your homework, do not expect to pass. If you do not study past homework assignments, do not expect a grade higher than a C. COURSE FOLDER: Your course folder should be a three ring binder. The folder will contain dividers labeled in order with the following: 1) Notes, 2) Worksheets/Exit questions/Sample problems, 3) Graded homework, quizzes, test reviews, and tests.
