Each student will be expected to be to class and in their seat on time.  Respect is required by each student to his/her peers, teachers, and administration.  An interest in the subject matter and a completion of the task is expected by all.  Some of the exercises will require cooperative learning and sharing with other classmates but cheating is frowned upon in this class.  A student caught cheating will receive a zero for the assignment.  Assignments must be turned in daily or upon completion. Late work will not be accepted.  A unit test will be taken upon the completion of assignments and a review.  Unit tests may include chapter tests, nine weeks tests, and semester tests.
