Homework NOTE: Students should spend from 20-30 minutes on any math homework assignment. If a student puts in a maximum of 30 minutes on the assigned homework, he/she should stop working, and come to class to get additional help. Students should not be putting in longer times on homework assignments... needing to do so is an indication of some additional skills reinforcement or re-teaching necessary, and the student should seek out such at school.]

Notes:      RE-DOs on Learning Target quizzes 1.1 and 1.2:  Students scoring below 6 on LT-1.1, or below 10 on LT-1.2, should make arrangements with Mr. Usem to RE-DO that particular Learning Target quiz in order to attain a passing score.  Re-dos need to be done outside of regular math class. Students should refer to Mr. Usem's availability schedule on his website (or posted in the room) for the available times. Suggestions are: Recess, Before-school, After-school, or during BEST class for students that have Mr. Usem / Mr. Leavitt for BEST.
