I expect every assignment to be completed, no matter how large or small, to the best of your ability. Your grade will be calculated based on a percentage of points.
If you miss class and need to make up work, please see me immediately to get information and handouts. Please turn in all make up work as soon as possible so that I can keep your grade updated. Students who are not happy with grades also have the opportunity to retake quizzes or redo assignments but are required to stay after school to do so.
