    You will be given an assignment occasionally.  The assignments must be neat, complete, and your best effort.  Any incomplete assignments will not be accepted.  You are responsible for doing your homework even if you are absent. 

    Quizzes

    You will have quizzes each unit.  Each quiz will cover one or two topics.  There will be both announced and unannounced quizzes.  I will drop the lowest quiz grade each marking period.

    Tests

    Tests will be given at the end of each unit.  Retesting is possible.  You must prove to me that you have studied to retest.  Proof may be test corrections with complete work shown or advisement time in my room.

    Notebooks/Binders

    We will take notes in class each day.  You are responsible for keeping a neat and organized notebook.  Periodically notebooks will be graded for a quiz grade.  If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get the notes you missed for your notebook.
