Notes, HW, Quiz/Test
(I have a class set of these items for you to use in class, but you may not remove them from the classroom. i.e.: without them, how do you finish your homework if it is incomplete at the end of class?)
2 tardies to class = 15 min. detention after school.
Tardy = Distraction
If you must be late – thank you in advance for being quiet, polite and non-disruptive.
Progress Book is a phenomenal tool – use it!
I may have pop quizzes to find out if you are using it or not.
I will not print out your grade for you. You have Internet access at the school – do not abuse it – use it wisely. Keep yourself informed of your grade daily or at least weekly.
You may request to use the student computers in my room in order to check your grades on Progress Book at the end of class, time permitting. I will have a sign up sheet on my desk. You will need my permission first, then you will need to sign the log. Please do not abuse this privilege.
Grades are based on the General Scale listed in your Student Handbook.
Homework matters! It accounts for 40% of your grade.
It is your practice for the course and it will be assigned almost every day.
It is usually worth 5-10 points.
You MUST show your work for full credit.
If you copy the problem and show your work on your homework, you have created a perfect study tool to use on your quizzes and tests. Use common sense when deciding whether work is required or not.
Time will be given at the end of each class period to work on homework as long as:
All students cooperate with minimum distractions.
We complete the whole lesson in time.
All students utilize the given time to work on the HW.
Time will not be given at the end of each class period as long as:
All students are not cooperative and we have multiple distractions.
We do not complete the whole lesson in time.
Students abuse the time given by not starting their HW.
HW % may replace your lowest test score.
ex: Your lowest test score for the 1st grading period is a 59%. Your Homework grade is an 89%.
I will replace that 59% with the 89%.
Many students do well on tests, but fail to complete their daily homework assignments.
Proposal (Provided you PASS the OGT): If you earn a C or higher on your quiz/test scores for one quarter, but your HW percentage is much lower, I will give you 20 bonus points in your Homework category.
Reason: If you score well on the Q/T (remember to show your work!) without doing the homework, then you have proven to me that you understand the material.
Downfall: If you allow your HW score to fall too low, the bonus points will not help you one bit. This is not to be considered as a “get out of doing homework” proposal.
