SCHEDULE

Homework is assigned and collected. The homework may be graded either completely or by random selection. Homework is assigned with a due date, usually the next class or as assigned by the teacher.  Neatness counts!  Poorly formatted, sloppy homework will be handed back with a zero grade.  Late homework will be graded at the discretion of the teacher. One or two late or missing homeworks will be excused during the semester.  Attendance is required.  Non-Excused Absence will lead to cumulative grade reduction at the discretion of the teacher.
