    Dear Parents/Guardians,
     
    Your child will need paper and pencils for taking notes and completing class work and homework. He/she needs to do homework, review class notes each night and ask questions the next day in class on any material not understood. In the event of an absences, he/she needs to get the notes and pick up any handouts from me.
     
    Grading System:
    Tests 40%      Quizzes 30%     Classwork/Participation 20%   Homework 10%
     
    Supplies:
    3 ring binder with loose leaf notebook paper/notebook                    **box of tissues for classroom**
    plenty of pencils and erasers                                                                  highlighter/colored pen
    TI 83/84 Graphing Calculator - can be checked out from library after form is filled out and signed by parent and student
     
    Homework:
    Homework will be checked every day with an effort check. You will receive a grade of 100 for a complete assignment, a grade of 50 for an incomplete assignment with at least half of the material completed, or a 0 for anything else. It is imperative that your child complete homework assignments. Math is a course that builds on the skills previously taught. Don't get behind. Math 1 is the foundation for the upper level math classes that must be taken next.
