on Time (I do keep track of tardies … after 6 you may lose credit)
is assigned every day. You will
be given time to work on it in class. Homework will typically be due the following day at
the beginning of the class period.
Your homework will be graded based on completion vs.
work will be accepted in my class. However after we take a chapter test homework
from that chapter will no longer be accepted.
work from an excused absence is YOUR responsibility. I have a Homework
Board that itemizes the day’s activities and assignments. Always check the homework board, and/or talk
with a classmate upon return to class.
You can arrange a time to receive instruction on missed concepts before
school, at lunch, after school, or during class (if time permits).
Test Re-takes: After a test has been taken in
class, students will have an opportunity to re-take the test (if they want to)
with the following expectations: 1st: the student will correct ALL
of the questions they missed on the first exam, 2nd: the student
must complete ALL missing work for the chapter which they’d like to re-take the
test, 3rd: the re-take will be similar to the first test, but not
the same test, 4th: the re-take test score will REPLACE the
previous test score. 5th: the re-take must be completed before the
next chapter test is taken.
* Come to class prepared with:
(but highly encouraged): Calculator
GRADING POLICY: You will be graded on a total point/percentage
system using the following scale: (Grades are cumulative for the entire
semester – I do not round at the quarter break, but do use classroom
participation and homework consistency to decide whether or not to round at the
end of the semester.)
90-100% = A 70-80% = C 59% and below = F
B 60-70% = D
Grading will be based on the
following: tests, quizzes, homework, note checks, and classroom activities.
