       (*A calculator will be provided for each student.  However, Precalculus students who

       intend on taking AP-Calculus should invest in this tool.)

Your grade in this class will be calculated in the following manner:

 

  • 1st Nine Weeks:
    • 40% Tests/Projects
    • 30% Quizzes (Announced and Unannounced)
    • 20% Classwork/Homework
    • 10% Class Participation/Math Silly Song & Dance Effort
  • 2nd Nine Weeks:
    • 40% Tests/Projects
    • 30% Quizzes (Announced and Unannounced)
    • 20% Classwork/Homework
    • 10% Class Participation/Math Silly Song & Dance Effort

Tutoring and Retests:

  • Tutoring is available Monday, Wednesday, and Friday after school (provided there are no staff meetings).
  • Students are allowed to retest on ANY test within the given nine weeks.  Students who intend on retesting a particular chapter will stay one afternoon for tutoring/review and may retest on the following afternoon.  Students may receive up to 100 points on a retest.
  • Avoid absences if at all possible.  If you must be absent, it is YOUR responsibility to look in the assignment folder to find out what was missed and to make it up.  Get the notes from a reliable classmate.  Any unexcused absence results in a zero for the work missed.
