60% Tests

40% Daily work/Quizzes/Homework/Class Participation



Homework will be due on the day it is assigned.  No late homework will be allowed.  The reason for this is that we go over the homework the following day and there is no time to make it up.  Please make sure that you are turning in your homework when it is due in order to avoid your grade to fall.  I am here before school to answer any questions regarding the homework. In case you do not get your homework in, you will have the opportunity to come in before school to do a different assignment that will replace the homework assignment.  The highest grade you can earn is a 70. There will normally be homework on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
