HELLO, students and parents!

 

This is the 35th week of school and the 9th week of the 10-week, 4th, and FINAL,  9-weeks grading period. 

 

A reminder that if any student is absent, they are expected to watch the video of that day’s lecture, found either on the YouTube link on their math page or in the shared google folder, so that they are up to speed when they return.  Also, I am in my classroom each morning at 8:00 AM for tutorials (Wednesday duty, though, at 8:20 AM.)

New Homework/Worksheet policy went into effect Monday, March 18, 2019:

Hard copies of all worksheets from sections covered in between exams are due the day of the exam over those sections at the beginning of class.  These WS packets will count as two daily grades, so with 3 exams per grading period, the WS practice packets will count as 6 total grades.  Work will be graded as a completion grade, but I reserve the right to count any problem for accuracy if I believe it was just copied from the online key without original thought and attempts at understanding.

100%-all problems earnestly attempted (not just copied)

75%-if any single problem is not earnestly attempted, up to 75% left not earnestly attempted, not just blank.

50%-half not done or earnestly attempted

25%-only a quarter earnestly attempted

0%-WS copied from key (none earnestly attempted) or not turned in.

As again Graduation draws nigh,

We prepare to tell seniors, “Goodbye.”

Though it seems like the end,

As away we them send,

To their futures, it’s actually, “Hi!”

Mathematics is not a careful march down a well-cleared highway, but a journey into a strange wilderness, where the explorers often get lost. Rigour should be a signal to the historian that the maps have been made, and the real explorers have gone elsewhere.--W.S. Anglin
