All one can really leave one's children is
what's inside their heads.
Education, in other words,
and not worldly possessions,
is the ultimate legacy,
the only thing that cannot be taken away.
 - Dr. Wernher von Braun

- HOMEWORK is assigned every night. Credit will only be given 
when all work is neatly shown.  
Students may check their work with a 
calculator but the numbers you use must be 
shown in any event. Late homework will not be accepted.                                                    
- NOTEBOOKS should be kept in a neat chronological order. 
Notebooks will have notes in front then your 
divider then homework. All notes and homework should be dated.                                   

OTHER INFORMATION
- The best method of succeeding in any class is to do homework on a 
regular basis and not to miss class for frivolous reasons.  Please 
try not to schedule vacations during school time.                     
- Students who miss class but are in the building are responsible to 
have their homework given to me that day.    
- Students who are absent from school must make up their work as soon 
as possible. They must complete it in double the time they were 
absent after they return. If they miss two days, they have four days 
to make it up. If they are missing for a week, they should complete 
everything in two weeks.                                              


Guidelines for Notebooks

1.  You will need one three ring binder with a supply of three hole
punch paper. Put your name and the word Math in large letters on the
front of your notebook.                                               
2.  A supply of round reinforcers is suggested.                       
3.  All notes will be taken during class. Notes must be in 
chronological order by date. If you are absent you should copy notes 
taken by another student. A buddy who can use carbon paper to copy 
notes for you is suggested. 
4.  Practice work and problems done during class should be included 
with your notes. These must be obtained from another student if you 
are absent.
5.  A divider with two pockets should divide notes and homework. 
6.  Homework should be dated and written in the second portion of 
your notebook as it is assigned.                                      
7.  I will collect all notes and homework at least one week before  
the end of the marking period.                                        
8.  See me about any problems with the information above.
