-Save returned tests and quizzes. All tests and quizzes should be corrected in pen. Tests and homework assignments are cumulative; thus, it is important that you continue to further your understanding of each topic.

Colored Pencils or Highlighters

Geometry is visual, and we will be using color to highlight important parts of problems and diagrams. A package of 5 different colors will be sufficient.

Index Cards

We will use index cards to study the many important terms throughout each unit. They will be used as a part of our final exam review.



Grading

Based on points earned out of total points possible. Genesis will be updated regularly and should be used as a tool to keep track of your progress!

-Homework: 4 points each

Homework is designed to supplement classwork and it provides you with the opportunity to practice and reinforce skills on a daily basis, and it will be checked each day. Homework will be checked for completion. In order to earn full credit, all work must be shown, every problem must be attempted. In addition, all diagrams must be included. It should also be completed on a separate sheet of paper so that it may be collected.

-Quizzes and Tests: Quiz: 50 points, Test: 100 points

Quizzes will be assigned frequently to check for understanding of topics. Tests will be assigned at the end of each unit. Students are expected to study for tests and quizzes.


Phones:

Phones are rarely used during math class. If you need them, I will let you know.


Illness/School Absence:

In the event of an absence, you will have time to make-up missed work based on the days missed from school.  Please see the absence folder at the beginning of class the day you return to receive missed work/assignments. If you miss class due to band/chorus/etc, you are responsible for all work completed that day and it is due the following school day.
