Everyone can learn.Fractals VideoHomework Policy -All homework assignments are due the day following their assignment, unless otherwise noted. They must be COMPLETED and turned in to the homework “IN” baskets before my door closes for the day. As a standard message for everyone, if it's turned in late, I will get to it at some point but I do not guarantee when. That's why I encourage students to do and turn in their work immediately, so as not to be sitting "missing" even if they turn it in late. Late or incomplete assignments will show as missing in Parent/Studentvue. That's the trade off of turning in late assignments. Plus, I believe that performance on homework is correlated to performance on quizzes and tests.
Geometry homework is graded based on correct answers to randomly selected problems. Geometry students will not know which problems are being evaluated so they should complete all problems. Algebra students will receive credit for homework if it’s COMPLETED, including the difficult problems. Even if it’s late. Answers to algebra homework problems are online or in the back of the textbooks. Students should be checking their work, NOT copying from the book, the internet, or each other. If parents or students want to know if something is turned in, students should show completed work to their parents before they bring it to school. Late homework is tedious for everyone. I am date stamping when I receive late homework and will get to it when time allows.
