Homework is graded on effort and will receive 2, 1, or 0 based on the number of problems attempted and the work shown. All work must be shown!
Tests are given at the end of each unit and will be announced in advance. A review will be done before the test to prepare students for the material to be tested. Students who are absent are expected to make up tests on the first day back to school. If a student was out for more than a few days, alternate arrangements may be made.
