    • Does assigned tasks without prompting and strives to persevere when challenged by the task at hand.
    • Brings pencil, agenda, and homework to class everyday!! 
    • Participates in class discussions by sharing  meaningful and relevant information.
    • Works well independently, with a partner, or in a cooperative group.

    More on how are you are graded

    • Classwork and Notebooks-Students will complete warm up questions at the beginning of class in their notebook.  Practice and examples will also go into the notebook. Notebooks will be checked and graded on content and organization.  A notebook check results is a quiz score. Notebook checks twice per quarter.
    • Homework-Homework will be assigned Monday through Thursday.   Homework will be a handout or a page from the consumable textbook. For credit homework must be complete, organized, and neat.  Homework is due at the beginning of the period the next day.
    • Retakes on Quizzes, tests- Students will be allowed to retake any individual quiz or test.  Before being allowed to retake the quiz or test, students need to correct all of the problems they missed on the original quiz or test.  Students must come in during lunch or after school for the retake. The highest possible grade on a retake is a B.
    • Absences- Check the RED CRATE for the homework assignments or ask another student.  It is YOUR responsibility to complete all missing assignments when you get back.
