Mathematics Department

September 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians,

During the 2004-2005 school year, the Mathematics Department met to discuss ways to improve student achievement in College Preparation Advanced, Honors, and Advance Placement courses. Our goal is to insure that each student experience success in mathematics. We agree that the completion of quality homework is an integral component to that success. It is our hope that the effort invested in this study habit on a daily basis shall be reflected in improved academic performance.

As this school year begins, please become familiar with the new Departmental Policy with regard to homework expectations in our College Preparation Advanced, Honors, and Advanced Placement courses. A copy of the Homework Policy has been printed on the reverse side of this letter.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our program.

Sincerely,

Ms. H. Hacker

Supervisor of Mathematics
