Homework will be assigned nightly. Homework will be a critical aspect of the success of each student, as it is used to review the skill taught that day. It is the responsibility of each student to complete each task on time and to the best of their ability. Students will be required to revise any work that does not display their best effort. Students that need extra help can ask me for a lunch pass so we can arrange a day for tutoring.
Being Prepared for Class: Please come to class with the following items daily:
* 1 marbled notebook* 2 Folders
Every student’s grade consists of: class test, quizzes, homework, class
participation, math notebook and projects.

look forward to working with you!
