Algebra II Assignments:
Check here for both classwork and homework assignments. Students are responsible for all missed work regardless of the type of absence. That's right -- the assignment is still to be done when you are sick or for an excused absence. The absence is excused, not the work! If a student has a planned absence (field trip or sports related) you must obtain the assignment in advance. It will be due on your first returned day to class. Make sure you complete any missed quiz or test within the required 5 days before school. You will not make up quizzes or tests during class time!
Additionally - if you are looking for additional practice problems, google: glencoe alg II workbook. They have a lot of good problems that may help you over a hump.
