Test Corrections are a privilege not a right.

There are NO retakes on quizzes.

It is expected that you learn material before a test, but in the event that a test does not go so well, you will have the opportunity to do test corrections.

The reason homework is assigned with answers provided is so that you can learn the material in a timely/daily manner. You are provided answers so that you can self-correct at home and find out what you know and don't know. When you detect some confusion, lack of understanding or general malaise, try to formulate a question and ask it. Refer to your notes, textbook, website, friends - email the teacher, ask in class, come after school. Most importantly, do something. It will not get better if you ignore it - in fact, it's likely to get worse. This course is really cumulative, and you must keep up with it, or you will soon feel overwhelmed. Being provided with the homework answers, and the fact that it is not collected, does not mean you don't have to do homework. You absolutely should do homework - it will help you have success in this class. Homework is an opportunity, not a penalty. Homework should be "done" - not "looked at." Thus it is expected that you will "work" your homework. This means that you should use a pencil, calculator (if working FR), extra paper if more room is needed and actually DO out the problems. Only through practice will you get better and faster so you can be confident and successful during in−class assessments. It is not always necessary to do every problem, you will need to self-regulate and determine how many are appropriate for you, for each particular topic - the number of problems that you need to complete will vary from assignment to assignment and unit to unit.

In fact, doing your homework is your ticket that allows you to participate in the test correction/retake option. If you are not doing homework, you may not be allowed to participate in test corrections. You will have two weeks to complete your test corrections. Test corrections may only be worked on in the classroom. You are encouraged to work with classmates on your test corrections, ask me if you can not get help from a mate. You will NOT be allowed to take your test home. Upon completing of adequate test corrections, you will receive one quarter of the percentage points lost.
