Today we worked on a final review packet. This packet is due on Thursday (tomorrow). The math final will be on Wednesday afternoon.

posted on: May 17, 2006

For the next 10 days, students will be working on a project to make a bridge out of toothpicks. Students will be placed in groups of 5 people. Each person will choose a job to do for their construction company. The majority of the work will be completed in class. Once in a while, you may have to finish up whatever was not done in class.

**HW:**

During this project, i recommend that students spend time reviewing each chapter in the book in order to prepare for the final exam. The chapter summary and chapter tests are good resources, as well as the publisher's website (www.glencoe.com).

Here are the procedures for my Beginning Algebra and Geometry classes. These were given out to the students on the back of their syllabus.

**Mrs. Bowman’s Policies and Procedures**

(Keep this sheet in your notebook)

1. Pencils are to be used for all class notes and assignments.

2. Students are required to bring book, notebook, paper and pencil to class each day!

3. Students are expected to write the problem, show all necessary work, and circle their answers.

4. Students are required to keep a notebook.

5. Calculators will be used sparingly during the year, at the teacher’s discretion.

6. Students are responsible for ALL missed work when absent from class. It is the students’ responsibility to ask the teacher for makeup work! Any makeup tests or quizzes will be given the day you return from an absence.

7. If a student needs help on an assignment or topic, he/she can see the teacher in the mornings before homeroom or on help session days (Wednesdays) from 8:15 – 8:45.

8. Each day students are expected to be on time to class, go directly to their assigned seat, get out all materials and prepare for the warm-up.

9. Students are to remain seated during class instructions. Students are to pack up only after being given permission by the teacher.

10. Restroom privileges are given before class or during the last 5 minutes of class.

11. All bookbags must be kept under the desk and out of the aisles.

12. Any student caught cheating or allowing another student to cheat off of their paper will receive a zero. Mrs. Bowman WILL NOT tolerate cheating.

13. For class information and assignments, visit my website at http://mabrymsblog.typepad.com/bowmans_blog.

14. Remember that YOU ARE responsible for your own learning! A POSITIVE ATTITUDE and HARD WORK will bring SUCCESS.
