How to Submit Coordinate Algebra Assignments

For all assignments, work needs to be typed and submitted in the appropriate dropbox as one document.


When you are asked to graph, you may use the online graphing calculator at Desmos.com. Just take a snapshot of your graph and paste it into your typed Word document. Desmos is a free calculator application which is very useful.


Make sure you put a heading on each assignment as follows:


First Name Last Name
Assignment Name and Date
Coordinate Algebra AB

Reminder About Late Work Policy for Spring 2016

Please be aware of the pacing guide and due dates for all assignments. Extensions past the last day of school will NOT be granted. Student work is due bi-weekly on THURSDAYS at midnight (11:59 pm) EST. Check course schedules for specific due dates. Work turned in after the deadline on the course schedule will be accepted within 3 school days following due date with a late penalty assessed. Late penalty begins on Friday and is deducted at a rate of 10% of the assignment value per school day. Work submitted on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is considered 1 day late.


At the end of the semester, all class work must be submitted prior to the time period the final exam is available. Thus, if final exams begin Wednesday of the last week of school, all other assignments which can still be accepted based on course schedule due dates, except the final exam, must be submitted by Tuesday of the last week of school.


Fall & Spring late work policy example: David turns in an assignment at 3:15 pm on Sunday. He scores a 7 out of 15 on the assignment. David will lose 1.5 points on this assignment (15 * .10) and the score recorded in the grade book is 5.5/15. A note should be made in the grade book detailing the late work deduction.

Let's have a productive and enjoyable learning experience this semester!
