HOW TO TURN IN THE MONTHLY WORK
First, remember that the due
date is the last day of the official school attendance month,
not the end of the calendar month. They are never exactly
the same, so when you hear that something is due at the end of
the month, that means the end of the school month. Those
dates, by the way, are at the bottom of this page.
Here's what you do to turn
in the monthly work:
- Take out one piece of
math work (from the practice problems work) that
you will give to your supervising teacher, separately from
the packet of work. This page is for the "audit file."
- Use the cover sheet to put
all the rest of the assignments in the correct
- Put the cover sheet
- Staple it.
If there are too many papers to staple through, come and see
me so I can show you a method to get it to work.
- Bring it to your supervising
teacher (along with all your other subjects'
- Show it to your supervising
teacher, so that teacher can determine if you have earned
full attendance for the month (NOTE: the one
audit file piece is NOT proof of work done and
attendance; it is a sample required by the State of
California to back up the teacher's decision about
the audit file piece with the supervising teacher.
- Bring the packet of work
(cover sheet on top) to the my classroom, room 3.
- Put the packet of
work in the box that I (Mr. Greenwood) have set
up in room 3. There will be a sign on the box saying,
"Monthly Math Work."
THE AUDIT FILE PAGE that you have to leave with your
supervising teacher...here are some things you need to know/do:
use a page of work from the practice problems.
Do not use a notes page, or a worksheet, or the video
analysis page (for those courses that do that).
- Do not
make a copy of the work page for me (Mr. Greenwood). I expect
one page or one section will be missing. I will count
one missing page as full credit, knowing that it is in the
supervising teacher's audit file (I'm trusting that the
missing page really is there). However, if more things
are missing, then there's a problem...but of course, you'll
never have anything else missing, so this won't be a problem
- Put the
correct heading on that audit file math page. Here's the way you must do
- Write four things in the
top right corner. RIGHT, not left, since staples
tend to cover up the heading on that side.
thing to write is your name. Both first
name and last name...DO NOT USE AN INITIAL for either your
first name or last name.
thing to write is the course that this assignment
is from. Don't write, "Math." Instead, write
Pre-Algebra, or Algebra Advanced, or Intermediate
thing is the date...and the date has to be:
- the day you actually did
- during the official days
of the month (or you do not get attendance credit,
automatically). You can find the official days of
the month on the math cover sheet, top right corner
- Do not write "Month 1" or
"Month 3" or something like that. Only the
actually calendar date is acceptable (that's a
regulation of the Department of Education, State of
in the heading is to be enough detail about the assignment
so that an auditor can see that the work is part of the
monthly assigned work. For instance, it would be
sufficient in math to put "4-3, p. 281-2, 11-35" which
would be the section, page numbers, and problem
ENDING DATES FOR EACH MONTH:

Month 9: May 19, 2017
Month 10: Before 11:30 a.m. on
the last day of school, although everyone's encouraged to turn
in the work packets earlier, and start summer vacation
sooner. Note: most teachers will require their packet to
go to them much sooner so they can grade the work and figure
out final grades before the last day of school.
Therefore, waiting until the last day of school to turn in
your work packets and audit file samples might cause you to
have lowered grades in some of your classes.
