Bellwork: The purpose of bellwork is to refresh your mind of knowledge that will
be used in class that day. Bellwork will be displayed on the board at the
beginning of each class. You are expected to complete the work on your own in
the first 5 minutes of class. Bellwork will be graded on correctness.

Homework: The purpose of homework is to practice and be prepared for the


test. It is important that you know how to do the material for quizzes and tests.
Simply copying someone else’s answers will not help you learn the material.
Also, homework should be out on your desk during bellwork so I can check how
much you have done. Homework will be graded on completion.

Quizzes, Test, & Projects: Assessments are given to see how much you have
learned in the chapter. You are expected to perform at your highest level. Taking
the time to study or working on a project is in your best interest.

Late Work: Late work will be accepted for half credit the following day.

Absent work: Classmates will fill out a “While you were out” form for those
students who are absent in their group. The absent student is expected to check
the file the first day he/she returns to find what was missed that day. It is your
responsibility to take care of it. Absent work will be accepted no later than one
week after the day missed to receive full credit. Once one week has past you will
only receive half credit for the work. This also includes make up tests and
quizzes.
