**ASSIGNMENTS AND TESTS FOR HONORS ALGEBRA I**

2017-2018

POLICY:

All tests, quizzes, assignments and projects will be recorded on the web site.

http://vva-ck.weebly.com

It is the student’s responsibility to access the site and to be aware of all assignments, deadlines and test dates. I reserve the right to pop quiz on any given day of class on any topic taught.

For the students in Advanced Algebra I, thefilebox of the current unit is always due on the test day. The file cards should be a thorough and accurate summary of the current unit. This year long project must always be complete, i.e., I will not accept file cards of the current topic if they are not in the designated file box and are not part of the continuous file of units.

The date given on the web site is the date on which the homework is assigned, therefore, not the day on which it is due. Each assignment is due on the subsequent class day unless it is a test day. Then the assignment would be due at the next class meeting or unless otherwise indicated.

Each assignment is graded according to the following criteria:

clear labeling, punctuality and effort,

i.e., every problem must be recorded (with the exception of applications),

appropriate work displayed. Calculator answers are unacceptable unless

requested or are the logical conclusion to the question.
