    All test grades below a 90 must be corrected. The students must fill out an IMTQB form in order to get points added back to the test grade. I encourage all students to set up a time to come in and see me for help with the test corrections.

    Facebook: The link to the class facebook page is given above. We will use this during class to post a problem. No one can become "friends" on the site, but you can "like" it. We will gather data based on how fast and how far the social media reaches. I am looking forward to seeing the data. Students are not required to have a facebook account.

    All daily work is due the next day (unless otherwise specified). What you don't finish in class, you must finish for homework. Before you enter the classroom, you need to show me the daily work from the day before (if you did not get checked off). Anyone who fails to show me the work (or the work is incomplete) will have a lunch detention. I check to see that you have attempted every problem. You are given an effort grade based on your completion. You will also be given a quiz based on the work. The quiz and effort grade will be averaged for the total grade.

    All Assignments are due on the day indicated. I will give you an assignment packet the Friday before the weekly assignment is due. The packet is due by Thursday. You have all week to work on the packet. Bring it with you every day because you might have some time to work on the packet in class. Assignments are graded! Complete assignments must contain: the questions, good work, justifications, answers boxed, completed on notebook paper, and the answers written on the answer sheet. If you have questions or need help, come and see me! Assignments are due in the box on the day it is due. Failing to turn in the assignment will result in a lunch detention in my room. The assignment will be completed during the detention. Turn your work in when it is due! As long as you turn it into the box before the end of the due date, I will accept the assignment with no penalty to you. Homework passes cannot be used for Assignments.
    All Assignments earning a grade less than 70 MUST be corrected on the IMTQB form! If you need help, come see me BEFORE it is due. I am happy to help! {IMTQB.pdf}
    Although they say 2015, these are the assignments for the current 2016 year.
