    Course Description:

    This course is designed to teach the student the fundamentals and advanced topics of Algebra II Honors IB through instruction, homework, in class work, quizzes/tests and projects.  This course will meet all the state requirements which include the benchmarks for the Common Core Standards (CCS) for Algebra II Honors.


    Classroom Procedures:

    • Beginning Assignment:  Students are expected to complete daily warm up assignments.
    • Homework is a Requirement!  Homework quiz each week.  One homework assignment will be collected each week at random.  NO makeup will be given on this assignment unless you were absence.   Homework will be listed on my board as well as LWHS website each day.
    • Classroom Assignments:   A list of weekly assignments will be posted on the board in my room and on LWHS website (under my name).  Assignments are due the day we go over it.  If you did not complete the assignment, you will get a “0” for that assignment.  If you have been absence, it is your responsibility to turn in missed work.   If you do not have internet access at home, I will run a copy of the week’s assignments for you.  Students will be given 1 day to make up work for everyday of excused absences.
    • Tests and Quizzes:   Tests/Quizzes will be announced in advance.  Make up tests and quizzes must be made up before or after school.   Arrangements must be made as soon as possible after absence (1 day for every excused absence). 
    • Binder:   All work for this class must be kept in a binder with the following 3 sections:  notes, homework assignments, graded work.
