Assignment Guidelines are listed here below:

These are some assignments oddities/peculiarities that I insist upon in written assignments. These assignments are usually application oriented (as I believe that you should know HOW and WHY the math is being used) and some are also pure math oriented (as I also believe that you should have some idea of WHAT we can do with the basic concepts that we have learned and HOW they related to the BIG math picture as well.)

(1) You will encounter 3 types of assignments in this course. Assignments can be (i) daily classwork assignments wherein you basically have ONE CLASS PERIOD in order to complete and submit the assignment; (ii) weekly assignments wherein you basically have ONE WEEK in order to complete and submit the assignment; and (iii) extended assignments wherein you have several weeks/month to complete and submit an assignment.

(2) Late Assignment policy. All assignments are due on the specified date at the beginning of class. If you DO NOT SUBMIT your assignment, you will be required to send an email to your parents (I must be cc'ed on the email) explaining that you missed a due date. If you submit the assignment LATER, but still on the due date, you are penalized 10%. If you submit one day late, you are penalized 25%. If you submit 2 days late, you are penalized 50% and you will be asked to come in on your time (lunch, break, after school) to complete and submit SOME/ANY work on this late assignment

(3) Work collaboratively on class assignments but make sure the work is your own. I have evil, ingenious ways of determining whether the work is yours or someone else's!! TRY ME?!?!?!?

(4) Use the Assessment Rubric as you put together your assignment. There's a reason why I include the  rubric in the first place (i.e. its how I mark your work!!!!)

(5) Use all available (valid and legitimate) resources as you put together your assignment. Cite your sources.

(6) Sometimes, class time is given for assignments. Remember use this time wisely .... its a privilege .... not a right!!

(7) Due dates, once collaboratively set, are non-negotiable.

(8) Here are some student exemplars ... examples of student work from previous courses. These exemplars are presented here in order to demonstrate what an assignment done at the A Level, B Level, and C Level look like in terms of format, presentation, depth of investigation, etc. Use these examples as guidelines for what your finished product looks like.
