Homework instructions for success:

  1. Do your homework on graph paper
  2. Use a pencil for all math homework
  3. Be sure to put your name on your work before you start!
  4. This information should be on your homework paper: Name, Class, Date, Assignment.  I have a rubber stamp that you can use at the top of your papers if you like.
  5. Always use a straight-edge for lines.  It does not need to be a ruler – it can be an index card, a pencil, etc.
  6. Please make a line across the paper at the bottom of each problem so I know where one ends and the next begins and also clearly indicate your answer when appropriate.  Use a straight-edge for the line.
  7. Homework problems do not need to be correct, but they do need to be your best effort.  If the answer can be checked you should show all work for doing this.  You are encouraged to use hints and help as a tool, but if you copy it directly without showing that you can do the work, you will get zero credit for the assignment

You will not get full credit for your assignment if you do not follow these instructions
