Welcome to Mr. Brown's class page. I will be teaching 2 different courses this year, Algebra 2 and Pre-Calculus. Both courses will follow the same general guidelines and classroom expectations.
Composition Notebook with grid paper
Chromebook or device (checked out from library and all assignments will be given through Google classroom)
GRADING POLICY: Daily Grades(50%): homework, notes, in-class assignments, and quizzes. Major Grades (50%): tests, projects, polished drafts
HOMEWORK: I will assign homework through google classroom on the first day of the week and Wednesdays. All homework will need to be turned in by the end of the week. To receive credit, homework must show calculations, when needed. Students can check their answers throughout the week and ask for assistance when the needed arise.
QUIZZES: Quizzes will be given randomly on a google form, so a Chromebook or device will be needed everyday. Pop quizzes are expected.
LATE WORK: Technological issues are not an exception to this rule. I have given enough notice prior to the due date. Late work is defined as any work not turned in by the end of the last day of the given week.
Late work may be submitted based on policy set forth by the Student Handbook. Late work will not be accepted passed the maximum allowed days set forth by the Student Handbook. Failed major assignments can be re-test or corrected for a maximum grade of a 70%. This also must be done within three class period of the assigned date.
MAKE-UP WORK: One key to success in this class, as well as in other classes, is attendance. However, if absent, it is your responsibility to gather and complete the work you missed. If you are absent on the due date of a standing assignment (meaning you knew about it before your absence), the work is due immediately upon your return. If you are absent for a test or quiz, it must be made up the day of your return in tutorials. This is to ensure that we can discuss work in a timely manner. You will receive the number of days missed to complete work. In the case of pre-scheduled activities such as sporting competitions and field trips, the work is to be completed and turned in BEFORE THE ABSENCE.
YOU MAY TURN IT IN ELECTRONICALLY… take a picture of it and email it or send it through google classroom.
TARDIES: Follow the student handbook.
TUTORIALS: A schedule will be announced in class and announced on Google classroom of any changes.
ELIGIBILITY WAIVERS – Will follow LHS’s policy.
BELOW PAR WORK: This will be decided at my discretion. Assignments will be handed back for completion.
STUDENT HANDBOOK: Students will follow Lampasas High School policies. Please review the handbook especially on items such as dress code, being tardy, and late work.
