Every assignment is classified as one of 4 types of assigments.
- Lab Work
Each assignments has a point value. Your grade is calculated by taking the total number of points you earned and dividing it by the total number of points possible. All assignments are given with lots of notice and clear expectations. You earn your grade by following directions, doing quality work and turning in your assignments on time. If you are having trouble you can come see me for help. I WANT YOU TO DO WELL! I am available A days at lunch and after school by appointment for tutoring. You can choose to do well in my class!!
Grade Posting: Grades are available ON AERIES for your parents and you to see.
· A = 90 -100%
· B = 89 – 80%
· C = 79-70%
· D = 69-60%
· F = 59 or lower
Homework: Homework will be assigned every class period and due at the beginning of class the next time we meet. At the end of the semester you will discover that homework makes a difference in your overall grade. E.g. No homework = C, but all homework turned in = B
Late Work: You are expected to turn in work on time. In case you have an emergency (or a birthday, or a forgetful day) you are provided with 2 late passes per SEMESTER that can be used for turning in a HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT OR LAB one period late (THEY CANNOT BE USED FOR PROJECTS!). Do NOT lose them! Once you've used your passes, there is a 30% penalty. Late work is only accepted for the current grading period. Please do not try to complete late work or work for other classes during our class. Attempts to do so will result in confiscation of the work and a zero on the assignment.
