What do I do if I missed school?
It is your responsibility to ask for make-up work if you are absent. You have two days for every day gone to make up your homework.
If you are gone for a school related function (sports, music, etc
) you need to get your assignments ahead of time! You are RESPONSIBLE to have that work COMPLETED when you return.
I will assign daily practice problems for you to work on at home or during class time. I firmly believe that "Practice makes Permanent!" There are a lot of apps that will help you with your homework if you get stuck. If you use apps to "do" your homework, you are only hurting yourself. Just think about it
how do you get better at making free throws in basketball if your coach shoots all of the for you?

Homework/Group Work/Class Participation- 20%
Daily Assessments- 20%
