Student Expectations:

Students will be expected to attend and participate in class, taking notes on the material covered.  They will be expected to complete homework assignments at home and grade them or have their parents grade them, using the solutions manual or answers at the back of the book.  Students will be expected to correct any missed problem — not just change the answer, but find the mistake in their solution and fix their work.  Students will be encouraged to ask questions about any problems they do not understand, either by email or during class.  Students are expected to present themselves appropriately, and treat others respectfully.

Teacher Expectations:

The teacher will begin class on time.  She will review homework and answer questions students have regarding missed problems.  She will then teach the new material, incorporating class participation in solving problems.  She will prepare and grade student tests.  She will give semester grades as well as a final grade for the year.  She will contact parents and students by way of email when necessary.  She will be respectful and patient with the students, encouraging an atmosphere of respect for one another.

Parent Expectations:

It is the parents’ responsibility to determine that this class meets the legal homeschooling requirements of their state or over-sight group.  They are expected to pay for the class by the given deadline and to obtain the needed materials.  Parents will also administer the closed book, closed notes tests.  Parents will either need to grade the homework or make sure their students are not simply copying answers from the solutions manual or the back of the book if they are allowed to check their homework themselves.  If a student is having a problem showing respect to the teacher or his classmates, the parent will be notified so he can deal with the problem.  If such a problem persists, the parent must realize that the student will not be permitted to return to class.  No reimbursement of payments will be made under such circumstances.
