Class Policies:


  • Projects will count towards tests or quizzes, depending on the size of the project
  • late homework is not accepted.  We will check each HW assignment in class the next day, and at that time everyone should make their homework perfect — whether that is correcting mistakes or just copying the problems down for the first time.  Any missed HW is a zero.
  • The only assignments that may be turned in late (for reduced credit) are Problems of the Week and projects.
  • Coming to class prepared is part of your In-Class Daily Grade.  This includes paper, pencil, calculator, laptop, agenda/planner, and Active Learning Guide (ALG).  During January/February, it includes your copy of the novel The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
  • Let’s all agree to be respectful to each other, OK?
  • what-i-look-like-if-youre-talking-while-im-talking
  • See the sub-page on Badges for more information on those.
