Grading • A homework grade is earned for the timely completion of assignments. • Late assignments will be accepted and graded, yet tardy work will be detrimental to the overall homework grade.
How to Help your Child “I need help.” Prompt and Question: • Does this remind you of other problems? • What have you come up with so far? • Where do you think you should start? • What is the problem asking you to do? • Would drawing a picture or diagram help? • How can I help you without solving it for you?
