Test Grades- 80% of total grade

  • Tests will be given at the end of each chapter.

  • Students will be given a study guide the day before each chapter test.

  • Exams are at the end of each semester, December 19th-20th, then on May 21st- 22nd.

  • Exams count as two test grades.

    • We will review the content covered a few days prior to the semester exam.


  • Students are expected to attend class daily. Class time is valuable and instruction cannot be made up if it is missed. I encourage students to come to class everyday, if they are absent they are missing something in my class. Make-up work can only be done for excused absences.

Make up work
Make-up Work

  • Students with excused absences must request make-up work upon arrival back to school then missed assignments must be turned in within 5 days of their return.

  • It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with the instructor for any make-up work.

  • *No make-up work for UNEXCUSED absences.

  • More challenging than ever, students must spend time outside of class preparing for Algebra class.

  • Since this is an advanced class student expectations are set at a higher level and students must be determined meet these expectations.
