Algebra I 1998-2025
Students are often confused to how important homework actually is for math class. Let me explain in a clear manner.
HOMEWORK IS THE MOST IMPORTANT WORK you can do in a math class! Please complete it daily!
Make sure you do your homework before doing anything else in your busy day. If you complete & learn how to do your homework problems, you will do well on test and quizzes. If you do not complete homework, I guarantee that your test grade, as well as your overall class grade will suffer greatly.
Homework is assigned everyday for each of my math classes, including Fridays and even for holidays. Homework is worth 2 points for each assignment. It adds up quick. By the end of quarter, your homework is worth an approximate 60 points, the same as two quiz scores.
Would you ever decide to throw away 60 points on a test? By the end of a semester, your homework is worth approximately 120 points of your total grade. This is more than a test grade! GET INTO A GOOD HABIT, DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
Homework is due at the start of each class period. I will either collect homework at the start of class, or check to see that you have done it. I DO NOT accept late homework. Do not ask me if I do.
Some minor changes always occur throughout the semester. Some extra assignments will be added, and some may be retracted. Please pay attention in class for any changes that may occur.
If you have missed class or have forgotten your assignment, please use the Assignment link found on the left hand side of this page to find your current assignment. Make sure to check with one of your "buddies" from your buddy list to confirm your daily assignment and to help if needed.
Some changes will be made during class time on certain assignments. I may allow for half credit for an assignment turned in one day late in the future so it is always best to attempt homework and have it ready on time.
If you have any questions about homework, please feel free to ask me in class or use the email link below. I hope for you to be successful and have a wonderful time in my math class.
