Classroom Rules:

1) I will attempt to treat you with the utmost respect, and I expect you to treat me with respect in return.

2) With your help, we will try to eliminate controllable distractions.

3) No food or drinks will be allowed. Water in a sealed container is the only exception to this rule.

4) Chewing gum will be acceptable, as long as you find a trash receptacle for it and the wrapper when you are done. When I find gum wrappers or gum in inappropriate places, this privilege will be eliminated.

I am pleased that you have chosen to take this class. I hope that you are prepared to work. I can’t make the material easy for you, but I will try everything I can think of to help you. If you are willing to make the effort, I believe that you will find that you can be successful. Some may not completely understand every single thing we do, but all should see improvement in their understanding. For the most part, Math is a sequential subject, so my goal is to keep everyone moving down the path, no matter where you started!
