Homework 
Each written assignment is to be completed neatly in
pencil on either lined or graph paper. Homework assignments that are illegible, completed in anything other than pencil, or completed on anything other than lined or graph paper will not be accepted. In addition, the following formatting guidelines are imposed on all homework assignments and points will be deducted if they are violated: (1) Solutions to problems are to be completed proceeding down the page with steps clearly shown, using proper notation at all times. Order of operations is to be followed at all times while evaluating expressions. Fractions are to be written with a horizontal fraction bar, using two lines of your paper. Each page is to have at most two columns of problems. (2) Equations are to be solved in a horizontal manner, not vertical (with the exception of division ). A new line is to be used for each step in solving an equation. (3) For problems that call for a graph to be drawn, the graph is to be neatly drawn to the right , level with the problem to which it pertains. Each graph is to have at least three labeled points. (4) The answer is to be boxed for every problem (with the exception of graphs)
