Answering questions, asking questions (could be student to teacher or student to student.)3. What are the Math Department homework expectations at JP Knapp (also located on syllabus)? Name, Date, & Assignment Information Neatness & Organization Completion Terminology & Notation Grade A Homework is titled with your name, date, & assignment information. The work is presented in a neat, & organized fashion that is easy to read; problems are numbered & answers are clear. All problems are completed with the proper work shown for each problem. Correct terminology & notation are always used, making it easy to understand what was done.Homework will be informally graded on the scale above daily. Remember it is very important that you/your child completes their homework nightly, at A level, to have the opportunity for quiz replacements (see syllabus for more information).My personal goal for ALL of my students is that they may be competitive against ALL other students locally, state wide, across the country, as well as world wide!
