Algebra 1 Part 1
Honors Algebra 1
Algebra of any kind is a disease
for which we have a cure!
DO NOT DO
APPEAR TO DO
HOMEWORK BUT REALLY DO NOT
DO NOT DO
You may use your own calculator (as listed below) for all quizzes and tests (except basic skills quizzes) provided you come to class prepared. Leaving it in your locker does not count as being prepared!
Pre-Algebra – At the end of Chapter 3
Algebra 1 Part 1 – After Chapter 2
Honors Alg. 1 & Alg. 1 – After Chapter 2
You may use your own notebook for all quizzes provided you come to class prepared. Leaving it in your locker does not count as being prepared! You may not use your notebook on Tests or Basic Skills Review Quizzes.
1. Be on time for class. You must be in the classroom PRIOR to the late bell.
2. Always come prepared for class with your covered textbook, pen/pencil, calculator (after Chapter 3 in Pre-Algebra and after Chapter 2 in Algebra 1), notebook/binder, and HOMEWORK. Keep in mind that if you forget something you need, you are out of luck – No Locker Passes!
3. Please sit in your seat once you enter the room. Once you are in the room, you are not to get out of your seat without permission.
4. Once you are in your seat, get out the previous night’s homework, check over it for any questions you may have, and begin the Warm-Up Assignment.
5. During the lesson, take notes. If it is on the board, you should be writing it in your notebook/binder.
6. Once homework has been assigned, begin working on it quietly.
7. If you have something to say, please RAISE YOUR HAND and wait to be called upon. If you have a question, please ASK! (I cannot help you if you are not willing to help yourself!)
8. Restroom privileges are to be used at the beginning or end of class. If possible, please request to use the facilities during the warm-up or after homework has been assigned and not during instruction. Emergencies are obviously a different story.
9. My desks or materials are NOT yours…Hands Off!
Consequences for not following classroom procedures or disrupting class in any way read as follows:
First Offense: Warning
Second Offense: Timeout / Parental Contact
Third Offense: Referral to Office
1. When you return from an absence, the first thing you do is check the assignment board and copy down all missed assignments. Hopefully you were able to check my website online and already know what you missed.
2. Assignments missed due to an absence can be given to me at the beginning or end of class or passed in with the present assignment. Please be sure to write the assignment number at the top of the paper. If it does not have your name or assignment number on it, you will not receive credit.
3. The assignment from your last day present prior to your absence is due the day you return. For example, if you are in school on Monday, absent Tuesday, and return to school on Wednesday; Monday’s assignment is due when you return on Wednesday.
4. From the same example above, Tuesday’s assignment would have to be made up within one week.
5. Class notes and warm-up assignments should be copied from a friend or neighbor when you return; or see me.
6. If you are absent for a single day on which a quiz or exam is given, you will be expected to take it the day you return.
7. If you are absent for more than one day at a time, see me about making up exams, quizzes, and assignments if you have any questions.
8. You will be expected to keep up with present assignments while working to make up assignments missed due to an absence.
9. Bottom Line: It is your responsibility to make sure that you have made up all exams, quizzes, and assignments if you are absent. Failure to do so will result in a zero for anything not made up.
Thank you for an outstanding effort on last years PSSA. Sandburg was 86% Proficient, and of that 86%, 60% were advanced!
We must continue to work even harder and get that number over 90%!
