What did I miss?  You can be proactive and find out what concepts were covered in class and what homework was assigned by…

1.  Look at your section's classwork/homework page on this website

2. Read your text book and review each example

3. Call a friend or look at the class binder when you return, as a last resort

What do I owe?  You are responsible for ALL class work and homework that was assigned.

When is my work due?  You have as many days as you were absent to submit your work for credit if you were out sick. If you have a specific situation that requires alternate arrangements, please see your teacher.

***What about if I go on vacation during non-vacation days? All assignments are posted on this webpage. If you have internet access, please check assignments to see what class work and what homework you will be missing. It is your responsibility to do all assignments. Most class notes for the lessons in each chapter are attached (see side bar menu). The book is accessable online. Use your log in and password that you were assigned in the beginning of the year. All lessons have video tutorials that are accessable online. Please return from your vacation with all work that is owed. If you have questions on concepts, please arrange for after school time to discuss your questions.
