EXPECTATIONS:
 Homework
Mathematical skills are developed in the classroom and are strengthened during homework and study sessions; difficulties must be discussed with your teacher – individually or in either small group or full class situations. Be conscientious about doing your homework. See your teacher early about difficulties; do not let them drag on until the end of a unit
 Extra Help
I am happy to provide extra at lunch(except on supervision days). Please drop in with your homework questions.
3.Policy regarding missed Tests and Quizzes
Students are expected to write the test or quiz on the FIRST DAY back to school. See your teacher to write your test.
In the event a student fails to follow through on a missed unit test, the teacher will:
 a) Speak with the student to negotiate a new test date.
 b) Communicate with the student’s parent or guardian about the missed test.
Tests not completed after the negotiated date will be designated as incomplete. The essential learning skills required for this test will still need to be demonstrated in order to earn the course credit.
 Policy regarding Attendance and Lates
The WaterlooOxford District Secondary School policy states that all students are expected to attend all classes and arrive on time. Excessive absences may contribute, directly or indirectly to the student losing the credit. After the third late a detention will be assigned in the office or the math help room, where the student is expected to catch up on math work.
 Supplies
Bring to class with you EVERY DAY:
– Scientific Calculator(will not be used for some units)
– 3 ring binder with paper
– pencil, eraser and ruler

**Note Calculators may NOT be shared during assessments and will NOT be lent to you by the teacher.
