Mrs. Wright's Class Rules and Procedures
Mathematics is a difficult subject. One topic builds on another. Daily participation is a MUST. Do not get behind in your course work. Attendance is mandatory. The school has accepted rules and procedures for dealing with absences.
Grades and Homework
Grades are determined by chapter tests, mid-term and final exams, surprise quizzes, group work, computer labs, projects, and a portfolio. Please read the "Criteria for Grading" posted for work requirements. You will be required to create a portfolio of selections of work from this class. Homework is not graded. Homework is the place for you to learn from your mistakes. If a quiz or test is missed because of an excused absence, it is your responsibility to be prepared to take the test on the day of your return to class. If the test or quiz is not made up at that time you will receive a failing grade for that test or quiz. If you have excused absences for longer than one class period, it is your responsibility to make up all work by a date decided by the instructor not to exceed the number of excused class days.
I DO NOT ACCEPT LATE WORK UNLESS YOU HAVE AN EXCUSED ABSENCE!!!
You should bring your calculator, a pencil and pen, and your notebook to class EVERY DAY unless told otherwise. For a complete list of supplies, please check my web page at www.members.tripod.com/wrightmath under your subject area.
While I am speaking to the class, I expect you to be listening and not speaking. While I am not addressing the class, you are free to move around when necessary (sharpen pencils, etc.). When working in your groups I expect you to behave according to the norms of cooperative behavior. You are not to leave the classroom without permission and /or without a pass. Only ONE student will be allowed to leave the classroom at any one time. All school rules will be honored
No gum, food, or drinks - 1 point off of final average for each offense. Failure to put the items away immediately after being penalized shall be considered another offense.
No Headwear - Failure to remove headwear will result in referral to administrator.
No Swearing - Failure to refrain from swearing will result in referral to administrator.
Respect - Treat all people at Central High School with respect and consideration. If any behavior is disrespectful or interferes with the classroom instruction the student will receive a verbal warning. (Note: This does NOT mean one warning a day!) If behavior continues, referral to administrator.
I am available for help from 2:35 to 3:05 on Mondays in Room B204.
