Corrections
MATH Correction Policy: We learn best from our mistakes. Many students often ask if they can have "extra credit." My answer is “no.” Instead, I have a quiz correction policy which allows students to look at the problems that they did not do well, maybe relearn them, and then correct them. This helps focusing in on the concepts or types of problems the student does not understand, as opposed to redoing correct problems that are already mastered.
If you ever earn below a 90% on any quiz, you should complete corrections! These corrections, if done correctly and completely, will raise your quiz score up to exactly 90%.
Quiz Correction Procedure
You have one week to complete test corrections. The week begins on the day that your graded test is handed back to you.
You may get help from your classmates, parents, or teacher (please make an appointment). However, make sure you understand your errors enough to explain them clearly.
You must do the following on a separate sheet of paper for each incorrect question or problem on the test:
 Number the problem/question and rewrite it.
 Write at least two complete sentences explaining what your error was and what you need to do to correct it. Write enough to prove that you understand it now.
 Show all work to correct the problem or question and include the right answer.
You can earn as much as half of the missed points back.
Example Sentences:
“I made a mistake with exponent rules in the original expression. I should have added the exponents, but instead I multiplied them. To fix this, I will have to use the product rule instead of the power rule.”
“My error was just a simple multiplication mistake. The volume for the cylinder that I found was twice as big as it should be because I accidentally multiplied the height and area of the base incorrectly. I wrote that 6x4 was 48. It was just a silly mistake.”
