Grading, Supplies and Expectations

**Class Room Expectations**

I expect all students to come to class prepared to work and learn and to be a positive active participant in their learning.

**Materials Needed**

- Something to write with (preferably pencil). All tests and quizzes must be done in pencil.

- Math book or computer. All students have an e-book which is an electronic version of the

hard cover book.

- Graph paper. We do a lot of graphing in class and for homework. Students can do all of

their work on graph paper.

- A binder and loose leaf paper. These are optional but students will need to be organized and

be able to find their notes and homework when needed.

**Grading**

Scale:

95 -100 A 87 - 89 B+ 77 - 79 C+ 67 - 69 D+ 0 - 59 F

90 - 94 A- 83 - 86 B 73 - 76 C 63 - 66 D

80 - 82 B- 70 - 72 C - 60 - 65 D-

Students will be graded on review/preview completion, learning target quizzes, team tests, checkpoints, and individual assessments.

- **review/preview **consists of the nightly homework assignments and **learning target **

quizzes are assessments that are based on the learning targets

explored during the week and are worth **15% **of a students grade.

- **team tests** are assessments of how the students are working as a team. They are

worth **15% **of the students grades. I do not allow retakes on team tests as they are

an assessment of how the team is working together.

- **individual assessments** are worth **70%** of the students grade. One form of

individual assessment is *chapter tests*. Another form of individual assessments is a

*checkpoint*. These are benchmarks of skills that students are expected to master.

Corrections on learning target quizzes are encouraged within a week of taking them. Retakes of individual assessments are encouraged and need to be completed within a week of the original assessment.
