Math homework must be **done completely and neatly on separate paper** (unless I tell them otherwise). Their paper should have a
proper heading and be **stapled on top** of the math homework sheet. The staple should be in the **upper left
corner** so I can read the back easily.

Since math concepts often take time and practice to sink in, I give students the opportunity to **correct their work** and improve their grade. This is required
because it helps them immensely. When students correct their mistakes, they learn what they did wrong so they understand it. This will help them not make the same mistakes on tests and quizzes. Students who keep up with corrections do significantly better on tests and quizzes than students who fall behind or who do not do corrections at all.

**Don’t be discouraged** if your
child has to do a lot of corrections. They’re learning a lot of new material and it’s not easy at first, which is why I give the opportunity for work to be corrected.

**All corrections are due a week after the assignment was originally due.** Your child will still have to correct the work; however, they will not get the new grade if it's not done within that week. It is in the child's best interest to get the work done immediately, so they'll understand what they did wrong and not continue to make the same mistakes on other assignments or on tests and quizzes which might occur before the correction is due. Additionally, they'll likely have to correct most homework assignments, so if they wait, corrections will accumulate, especially since a student may have to correct their work more than once, if it is still wrong. This becomes overwhelming for a child.

**It's usually best to do corrections on the original homework page,** but sometimes it's better to do them on a separate piece of paper (but only if the original
assignment is completely wrong, or if it's illegible). If this is the case, a full heading must be included on the new page, and the new page must be stapled to the
original homework assignment. This way I can see what they got wrong, plus I can give them the new grade.

Ex: An assignment with 10 questions means they problems are worth 10 points each.

In math, the notes are 5% of the overall grade, homework is 20%, quizzes are 30%, and tests are 45%.
