In order for you to earn credit for your homework and in-class work, please make sure to follow these policies:
1. Turn in homework at the beginning of class, and in-class work at the conclusion of the class period. Late work is not accepted for credit.
2. Only top (original) sheets from your carbonless notebook will be considered for credit.
3. In the header, write (clearly) your full name, your group’s name, the date, and the name of the activity (this will be specified in each class period).
4. If you have multiple sheets, they must be stapled together. Folded, dog-eared sheets will not be considered for credit. (This is why one of your course materials is a small stapler!)
