Homework/Project Policy:  Homework is due at the beginning of class, AFTER the student has had sufficient time to ask questions over the previous night’s work.  If not turned in at the beginning of the hour, it is considered a zero.  Late work is 10 points off per day.   Any homework, test, and project NEEDS TO BE IN PENCIL.  Student will grade with a red pen.  All homework assignments are allowed to be corrected. 


Make-up Policy:  All students are allowed to make-up work.  However many days the student is absent will be the number of days the student has to make up any missed assignments. Please let me know if there is a planned absence so that I can give assignments beforehand or check Wengage.  Make-up assignments by differ from the original.


Cheating Policy: No cheating is allowed.  Cheating, talking, or whatever the student is doing during a test, project, or assignment that leads the teacher to believe they are cheating will result in a zero.
