5.     WARM UP EXCERCISES    2 points each entry- must copy problem and show work!

 

TESTS              will be announced at least 4 days in advance.  Tests should be done in
                           pencil.  Always show work.  No work, no points!

 

QUIZZES        may or may not be announced.  Be prepared at all times.  Always show 
  
                       work.  No work, no points!

 

NOTEBOOK    A notebook is a required part of this course.  Your class notes will be
  
                        collected the day of a unit test.  Each check is worth 10 points.  Be sure
                           to get notes from a friend in class when you are absent.

 

HOMEWORK   In order to succeed in this class, you must do homework on a regular
                            basis.  Each assignment should have your NAME , DATE, PERIOD,  PAGE # and
                            PROBLEM #S at the top of your paper.  Homework will be checked each day in a
                            variety of ways. Each assignment is worth 5 points.  To earn the 5 points all
                            assignments should have the original problem written and all work shown.  

    No work, no points!

 

These grades are then added together and divided by the total points possible for the marking period.
