  • Students must be through the threshold of the door by the time the bell rings.

  • Consequences for being tardy may result in disciplinary action including a ALE.

 Required Materials 

  • Pencils

  • Spiral Notebook

  • Binder/Folder for Handouts

  • Textbook: Glencoe Geometry Online 

  • Calculator  A scientific calculator is required for this course.​ We will check calculators out at the library. Sharing calculators is not allowed. Sharing a calculator during a quiz or test will be considered cheating and handled as such.  

Cell phone calculators may NOT be used in this class.



Grading Scale                                                                                                                           Breakdown

D  60 – 69%  

F​  Less than 60%


Homework:​ ​ 

  • Homework will be checked and turned in at the beginning of each class.  

  • Points will only be awarded if all homework is ATTEMPTED and necessary work is SHOWN! 

  • No homework will be accepted after each unit test has been given unless prior arrangements have been made.


Quizzes and Tests:​    

  • The day of the assessment will always be announced.  

  • Students will be allowed to retake an assessment if they are NOT missing any assignments for that chapter.  

  • Quizzes will be given in the middle and the end of each chapter.  

  • Tests will be at the end of the chapter and will cover material from that chapter, but may have some material from previous chapters. 



  • Projects will count as a test grade.

  • Students will be informed of the due date and all materials needed to complete the project at least 2 weeks in advance.

  • A rubric will be presented when assigning the project so students understand the requirements that must be met. 


Late Work:​

  • 20 points will be deducted for late work.

  • Work that is more than one day late may not be accepted and a 0 will be the grade given.



If there is any evidence of cheating, you will receive a zero for that work.  Your parents and administrator may be notified concerning your conduct. 

Cheating consists of: 

  • Copying another students work 

  • Taking a picture of material to try to use on an exam

  • Leaving work out where you or other students may view it during an exam 

  • Having another student complete your work 

  • “Helping” another student complete an exam 


Excused/Unexcused Absences 

It is the student’s responsibility to find out what was missed and to turn in any missing work.  If you had an absence on a review day, ​you will NOT be excused from taking the test​!  It is your responsibility to get notes for the days you missed.  




What Students can expect from their teacher 

You can expect your teacher will keep you informed as to your class grades; to contact your parents if problems develop in class; to offer opportunities to assist you on work; to conduct themselves in a professional manner; to be knowledgeable about the material being covered; and to provide each student with the same educational opportunities. 


What Teachers expect from their students 

Your teacher expects you to come to class everyday with a positive attitude, motivated and ready to learn.  I expect you to be respectful to me and your peers.  I expect you to make the best out of every situation.  I want you to enjoy the learning process and understand that mistakes are meant to be learned from.  


Honors Class

  • This class will operate at a faster pace and be more in depth throughout the year.

  • Students can expect an increase in workload for all assignments.

  • This includes more assigned homework problems to be completed, more problems on all tests and quizzes, and more projects throughout the year.

  • Projects will be given for every 6 weeks that the student will be required to complete on their own time and turned in by the due date.


The attached policies cover the main points, procedures, and grading scale for class.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me via email at ​ or call the school to leave a message.
