Mr. Timothy Williams
GEOMETRY AND ALGEBRA II
CLASS RULES AND PROCEDURES
Mathematics is a challenging subject. One topic builds on another. Daily participation is a must. Do not get behind in your course work. Attendance is mandatory. The school has accepted rules and procedures for dealing with unexcused absences.
Grades and Homework:
Grades are determined by chapter tests, quizzes, and homework. Chapter tests count twice, quizzes count once, and you will receive two homework grades, one for the in-term as well as the term. For example: if there were 9 homework assignments in the first half of the term and 8 in the second half of the term, and you did 8 in the 1st half and 8 in the 2nd half, then you would receive an 8/9 or 89% on the in-term grade and an additional 8/8 or 100% on the term grade.
Geometry and Algebra II are demanding college preparatory math courses and require at least 30 minutes of homework each night. If you find you have made an error, rework the problem until you get the correct answer. By doing so, you will discover errors before they become bad habits. Homework is the place for you to learn from your mistakes. There is no partial credit for homework. All or none!
If a quiz or a test is missed because of an excused absence, it is your responsibility to see me and set a date for a make-up test within one week of your return to class. If the test is not made up during that time, you will receive a failing grade for that test or quiz.
You must have a textbook, notebook, and a graphing calculator. Divide the notebook into two sections: Notes and Homework. Each entrance into your notebook should be dated and titled by both topic and textbook page number. All classes are to bring their textbook, notebook, graphic calculator and a pencil to class every day unless told otherwise. All homework, quizzes, and tests must be done in pencil.
You are not to enter the classroom unless I or another faculty member is in the classroom. If you enter the room without an adult present you will receive a detention. As soon as you are seated, open your textbook and take out your homework unless told otherwise.
While other students or I are speaking during class, I expect you to show total respect.
I am available before and after school for extra help, by appointment, in room 218. Also, during your resource period there will be a math teacher on duty in room 111 to answer any of your math questions.
