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.

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

their work on graph paper.

- CC3 students are provided a packet that contains all in-class activities. These should come every day.

- CC3 and CCA have packets that contain all review/preview problems. These should also come to class every day.

- 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**

Grading is done on a 4 - point rubric.

**4 - Robust**: Mastery of the target is demonstrated and an organized and detailed justification leads to a proven conclusion. One or more of the following is demonstrated: Analysis, Application, or Explanation of how/why the process works.

**3 - Proficient**: The solution is correct and has a clear mathematical justification.

**2- Developing**: Partial understanding of the target is demonstrated and /or justification may not be detailed, clear, complete or precise.

**1- Basic:** A minimal understanding of the process to arrive at a solution and the work is incomplete or has significant errors.

**0 - None:** the work does not show any knowledge of the concept or is not an appropriate method to lead to the conclusion.

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.
