Course Guidelines

1) Show all work on a sheet of graph or lined paper. Justify your answer for each problem.  No work = No credit!

2) Ask for help, and use your resources. 

3) Your brain is your most valuable calculator.  You may double-check your answer with a calculator only after you have done the work yourself first.

4) Regular practice is necessary.

5) Help others when you know it.  If you can successfully explain it to someone else, it shows that you really know it.

6) Mistakes are to be expected; the important part is to learn from them.  Have a growth-mindset!

Test Corrections

If you score a 69% or lower on a quiz or test, you can do test corrections to raise your grade up to C (75%) credit.  Here's how:

1) Get a separate sheet of paper, and title it "Corrections";

2) For only the problems you missed on the test, re-do the problem correctly. Number the problem, show all work, and box in your final answer;

3) Staple your corrections to the original test, and turn it in to the Inbox.    

You may review the concept, but corrections must be done independently.
