              Class work / Participation – 10%

                       Class work maybe collected ever so often; included in this grade

                 maybe any work completed in the computer lab.

                       Participation includes students’ respect for the class and the work

                done by themselves and their classmates.  Students must be aware that

                asking questions is vital to their success and need to do so as often as

                is needed.

     
    In addition to regular interms and report cards I provide students with progress reports on the 4th and 9th week of every quarter.
     
     
     
    Please note that the mandated changes in curricula make it rather difficult to adhere to a specific schedule. Rather than constantly changing due dates, which is confusing to everyone, all homework will be announced in class, as well as visibly posted. If you are absent, please see me upon your return.
