Students are expected to do homework as assigned and encouraged to read ahead to ensure understanding of the statistic concepts. Homework will not be collected unless the student fails the weekly quiz (which is less than a C). If a student produces homework they will be given the opportunity to do quiz corrections to earn half the points back towards their quiz (With corrections, failed quiz grades will not be higher than an 80%) Attendance/Makeup: Students are expected to be present, on time, and prepared for each class. Students are also expected to act in a manner that is conducive to learning. It is the student’s responsibility to check with the teacher to schedule makeup work on the day the student returns to class after an excused absence. Students attending field trips must get homework prior to their absence and any missed assignments must be turned in the day they return from their field trip. Failure to do this will result in partial credit for late assignments.
