Homework Policy:

***Students are expected to at least attempt every homework assignment in order to maintain their skills and to be prepared for class.  Homework will never be graded for correctness, as it is meant to be practice, but must show some work and effort on at least most of the assigned problems to receive full credit*** 

***Parents often express concerns on how to help their children in mathematics courses that have investigations rather than the traditional texts they were "schooled" using. Although the book does not offer example problems, parents CAN help! First, ask your child to explain what the problem is about. Their communicating and/or paraphrasing the information may spark their own ideas on how to tackle a problem. If they still feel unsure, have your child answer the questions listed below. Written responses to these questions will be counted as an attempt to complete homework!:
   *What is the problem about and what are the key pieces of information that may be used to solve it? (ex. a walkathon, walking rates and one pledge plan is $3 per kilometer)
   *What information is the final answer suppose to give you? (how much money someone earns, make a graph, estimate solutions)
   *What strategy (or HOW) might you go about finding the solution, even if you are not certain how to go about using the strategy? Try the strategy if you can!
