- Any student who earns 10 check plus assignments in addition to being on time and correcting any work that needs to be corrected will earn a 100% homework average. No homework averages will be above 100%.

**two weeks**from the due date.## Homework Expectations

I expect students to spend about 20-30 minutes a day working on math assignments outside the classroom. I do not need every assignment to be 100% complete or correct. I'd like students to at least try every problem so that they are ready to ask questions in class if they don't understand. It is my goal to get all of the students, who don't understand a problem at first to spend at least 3 minutes to

- reread the question,
- refer to their notes,
- come up with one or more strategies to solve the problem
- come up with an estimate or be able to tell if their answer is reasonable

- www.engageny.org and
- call me at home (before 9pm and no texts, please).
