    Homework and Assignments will be accepted late, for 10% off the grade.
    Almost all assignments can be redone for a higher grade. On assignments that are worksheets the highest grade that can be achieved on a late or redo is a C.  During trimester 1, assignments may be completed up to 1 month late. During trimester 2, assignments may be completed up to 2 weeks late. During trimester 3, assignments may be completed up to 1 week late. 
     
    To make up Catalyst points - For the week that you missed points, you must write 50 words about the topic we learned that week. You will earn 4 points for every 50 words written. You may not copy directly from any source for this. The highest you can raise your catalyst points are a B+. (For Example: I learned that the scientific method is a series of steps scientist use to solve problems in the world.) 
     
     
     Test and Projects can be retaken up to 2 weeks after the due date. 
     
    Academic Dishonesty - Any student caught cheating will be given a "0"/F on the assignment/test/project. The student cannot redo or retake the assignment/test/project. The student's citizenship and effort grades will be lowered. Parents will be notified. Cheating includes coping another student's work, plagiarizing, coping from the internet without proper citations, claiming another person's ideas or thoughts are theirs and any variation of these.
