Rules for Classroom: 

1) No use of cell phones or small electronic devices unless teacher approved

2) Laptop privileges will be taken away if not on task (ie: games, facebook, etc)

3) Tardies take effect 5 minutes after the last period

4) Be respectful of your classmates, the school and me

Homework/Late Work Policy: Unless specified, all assignments are due at the beginning of class., so if you don't have your assignment ready to hand-in, it is late.  Assignments are due on the designated date and are posted on the course google classroom page.  If you are absent on the day an assignment is due, please e-mail it to me to avoid late work penalties.  If you have a due date conflict, it is your responsibility to negotiate an alternative submission date.  However, if you are ill on the day an assignment is due, I expect you to e-mail it to me by 4:00 p.m. if you want full credit.  I will accept late assignments up to two weeks after the due date; however, the maximum credit a late assignment can receive is 50%.  


Outlined below are some basics to help you get started:
Supplies: Laptop, Quad ruled composition notebook (must have bound edge for Intro to Engineering), Any notebook for AP CSP, Blue/black pens, pencils, calculator... NO RED INK

My grade book is set-up on categories.  Projects and Exams are 70% of your total grade.  Classwork and Quizzes are 30% of your grade.  Remember, each quarter is worth 40% of your grade and the final exam will constitute the remaining 20% (40% + 40% + 20% = 100%).
