Students will need a basic scientific calculator, paper, notebook, graphing paper, and pencil.

Re-Take Policy

In this class, students may re-take any chapter test for which they would like to improve their score with the following guidelines.

1.  Retakes will cover he same objectives but will not be the same as the original test.

2.  Retakes may have less questions and/or a different format than the original test.

3.  The deadline for retakes will be on the date which the next chapter test is given.

4.  Once a nine weeks ends and final grades are entered, students may not retake tests from that nine weeks  grading period.

5.  The student make retake a test twice within the given time frame allowed.

6.  The highest grade will be recorded in I-NOW.

7.  Students must sign up to retake test.  If the student does not show up to take the test at the agreed upon time,  they forfeit the right to retake that particular chapter test and must keep the last grade earned.

8.  Retakes must be done on Tuesdays from 3:15 to 4:00 unless other arrangements are made with the teacher.

9.  IT IS THE STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO SIGN UP FOR MAKE UP TESTS.
