Grading: Grading is on a total point basis. Tests are worth 100 points, Quizzes can be worth anything from 5-70 points, usually around 40. Tests: approx 40% of grade. Quizzes: approx 40% of grade. Homework and projects (together): 15-20% of grade. Homework will be checked most days. Late homework will receive half credit. Assignments for a specific chapter will not be accepted after the day of the chapter test. Please see me for special circumstances. Tests will be announced, quizzes are often announced, but not always. Group work is included as part of the grade as is at least one project per term.
Make- up work: If you are absent, try to find out what you missed from a classmate. You may also check the online calendar. Check in with me the day you return. Arrangements to make up any missed quizzes or tests should be made the day you return. School policy allows one day of additional time for each day missed to make up work.
Extra help: I am available for extra help before and after school most days (advanced notice is not required). I do sometimes have meetings after school, so it is good to check if you can.
