-Homework and assignments will be corrected in class the first couple days AFTER they are assigned, and will be worth up to 5 points dependent upon completion and correctness of the assignment.
-Assignments will be accepted late up to one week past the day that it is was due for up to full correction credit. After one week it will be up to teacher discretion to allow for full assignment points.
-If a student is absent, it is the student’s responsibility for obtaining missed assignments and notes from the teacher or from another student. They ARE still expected to do assignments for missed days.
Students in need of extra help may come to my classroom after school any time between 2:50 -3:45 pm. I am also usually available before school from about 7:30.
Students are expected to act responsibly and respectfully at ALL times in class so that EVERYONE can learn in a productive, safe, and enjoyable environment. Dixon’s school behavior policies will be followed.
Student grades are determined on total point basis as well as weighting.
Homework/Classwork, Notebook checks, Participation points, etc = 20% of term grade
Quizzes and Tests = 80% of term grade
A 94-100 A- 90-93
B+ 87-89 B 83-86 B- 80-82
C+ 77-79 C 73-76 C- 70-72
D+ 67-69 D 63-66 D- 60-62 I 0-59
One of the many reasons students are successful year to year is by staying organized. The following list of supplies will be VERY HELPFUL for class this year and will be essential in helping your child be successful during the year. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

2. Pens and Pencils (lots)
3. Scientific calculator (classroom set of TI 30XS Multiview available for use IN CLASS) (About $15-17)
**4. EITHER a 3 ring binder (1 ½ inch round rings) for math book OR DUCT TAPE to cover consumable math book .
