Homework Policy for Parents & High School Students
Click Tab to view Resources
- Homework completion entails attempting and showing steps for each and every question in the assigned worksheet or exercise by the instructor, unless specified otherwise by the instructor. Even if the concept is not so clear, the student must try to attempt using the examples provided in class.
- If a student is absent from a session due to any reason, any assigned homework will still be due by the deadline. The deadline would only be extended with reasonable documentary evidence, such as, a doctor’s note, boarding pass, etc. It will be the student’s responsibility to self-learn the content from the skipped session or parents could contact MathProject for extra one-on-one session, offered at additional costs.
The instructors inform the students about the weekly homework due within the first hour of the MathProject session. It is the student’s responsibility to work with the instructor during the session to develop clarity of homework concepts.
- The student must let the instructor or MathProject administration know during the session if he or she is struggling with a concept and does not feel prepared to do the assigned homework.
- Academic integrity is an essential component to student learning. Students must submit original work for all evaluations, actively avoiding plagiarism, cheating, copying, etc.
The students must submit their classwork on the same day as the session by the deadline.
Equipment for online study sessions
Here are the equipments that we recommend as you prepare for the MathProject study sessions This will be extremely effective in facilitating a superior interactive experience in the online classroom:
- OPTION A – Any writing tablet with a stylus
- OPTION B – Any touch-screen laptop or tablet (such iPad, Samsung Tablet, etc) with a stylus
- OPTION C – A non-touchscreen laptop with a mouse or trackpad
- OPTION D- A cellphone
Some important considerations:
- Any touch screen device will work for Conceptboard notes. However, OPTION C & D should be the last resort if Option A & B are not accessible.
- Stylus is recommended for Option A & B. Alternatively, the student can use mouse/fingers to write.
- It is ideal for students to have two separate devices. One will be used for camera and the other for writing on Conceptboard.

How to Ensure Your Child’s Progress Once Enrolled
- MathProject invests a significant amount of resources to keep our parents informed of weekly performance, test results, and assigned homework through weekly performance report emails. If you do not receive an updated performance report from us by email within 24 hours of the MathProject’s study session, please notify us immediately. Kindly review the report on a laptop or desktop or clear the cache on cellphones. It is often the case that parents review the reports on their cellphones without clearing their web browser’s cache which displays the older version.
- As our technology-system is Google-based, if you do not have a Gmail address, you will lose access to your child’s performance report every two weeks. In order to avoid the hassle of re-requesting access, we strongly recommend you create a Gmail address and set up mail forwarding to your regular non-Gmail email.
- If you have homework-related questions or concerns, ‘Reply All’ (NOT ‘Reply’) to the latest performance report email, and we will address your query promptly. We strive to respond to all queries within 1 business day. Alternatively, you may also call us at 1-844-628-4243 extension 2.
The MathProject management is happy to be your primary point of contact at MathProject, and you are encouraged to contact us at any time with your questions, comments, and feedback. If you have any MathProject-related questions or concerns, please call or text us at 1-844-628-4243 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
