Your Math Notebook
All students are required to keep a math notebook. The notebook will contain all of your work for the entire quarter and will help keep you organized. It should be kept neat, utilize loose leaf paper, and must contain these four sections in this specific order:
Section 1 Warm ups. Warm ups are done daily and must be numbered and
dated. They must be in order.
Section 2 Textbook. Notes are taken daily in your textbook pages. They must be in order. If you are
absent, you must get the notes from the another student or the white binder.
Section 3 Homework. Your homework is collected every day at the beginning
of class. Once corrected, put in order in this section of your
notebook. You must have a filled in green assignment sheet.
Each section must begin with a divider. The notebook must be a 3-ring binder. It may be with other subjects. I collect them and grade them on the same day, so you will get it back for your other classes.
ALL LETTER GRADES WILL BE BASED ON THIS SCALE
