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.
