Algebra Assignments
Here is a link to our ebook log in page.
Homework Expectations
1. All homework assignments are done in pencil.
2. Homework assignments are clearly labeled. Ex. HW #3 124 to 128
3. Problems are clearly numbered. Work is shown where appropriate. If there is a formula, the formula is written and substitutions are included.
4. A straightedge or ruler is used for graphs, tables and shapes that have straight sides.
5. Pages are numbered and assignments are recorded in the table of contents (TOC).
6. Homework assignments are corrected at home using the answer key and are corrected in colored pen (not blue or black). If the problem is incorrect, the correct answer is written down. If you are still unsure of how to do the problem, put a question mark (?) next to the problem so we can address it in class.
Note: Periodically there will be unannounced homework checks, where you are asked to write down several problems from your math journal to demonstrate that you are showing adequate and clear work.
