Homework For Mr Santowski's Algebra II Classes
These are the various homework "formats and oddities" that I insist upon:
(1) Include date, lesson title, page number and questions at the top of your HW.
(2) do your homework the evening the lesson was taught.
(3) homework is due on my desk our next class period before the lesson starts.
(4) all homework MUST be checked against the answer key in the back of the book.
(5) I MUST see RED/BLUE check marks or RED/BLUE wrong marks for your work.
(6) Any homework that is incorrect MUST be corrected (or I must see a reasonable attempt!)
(7) Collaborate with your classmates, but DO NOT simply copy their work. If you really don't understand it, SOLVE YOUR OWN PROBLEM (ASK yourself about what resources you have available to you???!?!?!?!)
(8) Graded homework will be placed in your binder in the HOMEWORK section of your notebook.
(9) Your homework grade reflects either (i) did you follow my instructions? or (ii) did you do ALL the questions or (iii) maybe I just marked ONE question in detail
(10) Late homework ...... don't bother!
