How do I access the online textbook?
Go to my.hrw.com. Your login is your userhamo + the letter h. For example, if your name is West Warrior, your login would be wwarri01234h. The password is holtstudents. 

Can I redo assignments?
Yes, and I encourage you to do so. When I look at your assignments I am checking for understanding. Please review the material and make sure that you are demonstrating understanding in your responses. Please let me know if you need assistance or clarification. I am here to help you succeed.

Can I retake tests or quizzes?
I think it is great that you want to improve your score and understanding! If you do not do as well as you hoped on a quiz, you have the opportunity to retake that quiz after you have studied and demonstrated what you have done to do better the on the retake. An exception to this is the common assessment. Retakes are not offered on common assessments. If you have questions about this, please feel free to see me and I would be happy to talk to you about it.

Is there extra credit?
I appreciate that you want to earn the highest grade possible in this course. If you take the time to do your work and study, I know you can earn the grade you would like without extra credit. There may be a few occasions when I will offer some extra credit at my discretion, but please do not rely on extra credit to raise your quarter or semester grade.

I cannot do my homework. What do I do?!
It is expected that you complete all of your assignments on time. Please find a way to complete your assignment. If you need my assistance, please ask your homeroom teacher if you can come see me for help. Alternatively, you can obtain a lunch pass to work in the Media Center or Student Center during your lunch.
