Homework Policy for Parents & High School Students

To ensure optimal benefit from enrollment in MathProject’s high school courses, students and their parents must read and sign the following homework policies before their child’s first session in the math literacy program. We implement these rules to help students with key life skills, such as time management, work organization, setting priorities, meeting deadlines and above all, taking responsibility for their studies.

Hence, all high school students must adhere to the following policies as part of the math literacy program:

  • We expect students to complete the assigned homework on time and to the best of their abilities. They must show steps and follow the instructor’s guidelines.

  • 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.

  • If a student is unable to complete the assigned homework, the parent should inform the MathProject administration before the homework due date by calling or leaving a voice message at 1-844-628-4243 to avoid any fines.

  • 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.
  • While we encourage all students to submit their homework on time, MathProject administration grants high school students a three-day grace period, considering their school workload and other important commitments. As such, the complete homework submission via Crowdmark is due no later than midnight on Tuesday following the MathProject session.

  • If there are technical difficulties with Crowdmark, email the homework to the instructor by the aforementioned 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.
