Test dates will always be announced and given at the end of each unit. Quizzes will be given throughout a unit. Being absent the day before an announced quiz or test DOES NOT excuse any student from taking the quiz and test the day they return to school. Class work and homework is sometimes collected and graded.
All grade 8 students are invited and encouraged to participate in the Math Olympiad contests at Perry Jr. high.

Homework is given on a daily basis. Homework offers a student practice and reinforcement of concepts learned in class. Math homework should take no longer than twenty to thirty minutes per night.
Homework is due the day after it is assigned. When a student is absent, he/she has an equal number of days to make up the assignment with full credit given. *When absent it is the students responsibility to turn in the assignments or no points will be given for that assignment.
Since homework provides practice and reinforcement, students will receive credit every 5 weeks for completed homework.
Weekly Reviews are graded assignments. They are given on Friday and collected on the following Friday. Late WR's will NOT be accepted!
TEST CORRECTIONS: Incorrect Multiple Choice questions should be highlighted in color on the test. Incorrect answers should be crossed out and correct answers should be correctly completed and circled on the test. Extended Response should be done on a separate sheet of paper, problem, work and correct solution should be completed for each problem missed. All students will complete corrections!
Since math is cumulative, attendance is extremely important! It is the students responsibility to make up all missed class work after every absence. Students are required to check the course calendar for missed assignments and to complete and turn them in for homework credit within one day upon their return to school.
