Homework assignments Homework problems will be assigned regularly. It is essential that you do the problems to the best of your ability. Copying them from others constitutes plagiarism and will do no one any good. The answers will be provided to you in most cases as a way for you to check your understanding. Homework problem sets will generally be worth 5%. A weekly quiz will be conducted to ensure your understanding.Note that the homework total score must reflect the submission time and marks must be deducted as the following:

  • Late by one day      =95% * score
  • Late by 2 days         =90% * score
  • Exceeds two days   =50% * Score

 

 

Attendance Students are expected to attend their classes regularly and without delay. More than 5 minutes delay will turn in missing points from the attendance make considered in the classwork accumulative mark.
Missing school-based quizzes If a student missed an ongoing formative assessment, it is his responsibility to provide medical excuse and follow up with the teacher to repeat the exam. If medical excuse was not provided the mark will be considered zero for that specific quiz.
Academic integrity ATHS is a community of learners joined together by search for knowledge; academic integrity is the central value in this community characterized by upholding values, codes of behaviour, honesty, free from lies and deception. Ultimate ATHS community properties are the values of fairness, respect, trust and responsibility.Academic dishonesty refers to cheating and plagiarism which is student receiving or providing unauthorized assistance during an academic activity. The academic activity is any exam setting or submitting academic reports and projects. Students are responsible for the integrity of their actions and must be willing to accept the consequences of these actions. If the teacher detected academic dishonesty, he will discuss the issue with the students and if it was clarified he will adjust marking accordingly.
