    Homework is subject to change at any time. Students are responsible for their assignments regardless as to what is written on the homework board.  The assignment is given out verbally at the end of each class and is also written on the classroom board. Sometimes the class moves faster or slower than planned and students are responsible to be alert to the changes.
