How are students' grades determined?
15% Warm Ups
*We do some sort of warm up almost daily, but they are not always graded.
This category also includes any collected class work.
* Homework is an effort grade most of the time.
If it is done with correct work shown, then it's a 5/5.
If it is mostly done, then it is a 4/5.
If it is partly done, then it is a 3/5.
If it is missing or there is no work shown, then it is a 0/5.
ALL LATE WORK IS 50% OFF!
*Quizzes cannot always be corrected, so students need to be sure to study.
*All tests can be retaken AFTER the student conferences with the teacher.
Tests must be taken BEFORE the next chapter test is given.
D and F test grades must be signed by a parent or the parent will be contacted by phone or email.
