Homework Policy for Parents & High School Students
- Homework completion entails attempting and showing steps for each and every question in the assigned worksheet or exercise by the instructor, unless specified otherwise by the instructor. Even if the concept is not so clear, the student must try to attempt using the examples provided in class. Failing to do so is deemed incomplete homework.
- If a student is absent from a session due to any reason, any assigned homework will still be due by the deadline. We will only extend the deadline with reasonable documentary evidence, such as a doctor’s note, boarding pass, etc. It will be the student’s responsibility to self-learn the content from the skipped session or parents could contact MathProject for an extra one-on-one session, offered at additional cost.
- The instructors inform the students about the weekly homework due within the first hour of the MathProject session. It is the student’s responsibility to work with the instructor during the session to develop clarity of homework concepts.
- The student must let the instructor or MathProject administration know during the session if he or she is struggling with a concept and does not feel prepared to do the assigned homework.
Academic integrity is an essential component to student learning. We expect students to submit original work for all evaluations and to take responsibility for ensuring the avoidance of plagiarism, cheating, copying, etc., at all costs.
- Students must ensure that they receive Crowdmark links to submit the assigned work from the instructor before leaving the session.
- The students must submit their classwork on the same day as the session by the deadline.
Failure to complete and submit homework on time or in an acceptable condition will lead to a $25 fine per late or incomplete submission (up to a maximum of $25 per week). MathProject donates all fines to a registered Canadian charity. Before the start of the program, a $200 security deposit is required by check or etransfer, payable to MathProject, which will be refunded to parents at the end of the term after deducting any fines incurred.
