Grades:

Grades are weighted as 20% Homework, 30% Daily Work, In Class Activities, Formative Assessments, and 50% Tests/ Quizzes.

 

Homework:

Homework is generally assigned every class and will due the following class.  Homework may be completed online via your Pearson Digits account and should take on average 20-30 minutes.  You will need to show your work on a separate sheet of notebook paper or in your math journal for all online homework.  Homework is generally accepted as a completion grade; students must earn a minimum or 80% for full credit (+10/10). Late work will be accepted following the district guidelines:

  • students will be allowed 2 homework extensions to receive full credit for late work turned in within 2 school days. 
  • assignments turned in after 3 days or the third late assignment are subject to a late penalty of 20% (+8/10).

 

Notes:

Notes should be taken during every class.  Please view notes and practice problems on the interactive notebook site for accuracy.

 

Quizzes:

Students are assessed throughout each unit in the form of traditional or online quizzes.

 

Tests:

Assessments are given at the conclusion of each topic and/or unit.  Students who earn a grade below 70% on a Topic Test are strongly encouraged to retake the test. 

*Following the District Guidelines, students will be allowed to retake up to 2 assignments per trimester (Quiz or Topic Test); Unit Tests may not be retaken. Students should follow this procedure to request a Retake:
