I know that each of you come into my math class with different experiences, knowledge, and attitudes towards math. I will do my best to meet each of these individual needs.  In return, I expect each of you will do your best to achieve a level of success that will make you, your parents and me proud.  I have high expectations of you, and I hope that you will reach and exceed these expectations throughout the year.

F =    0  - 59%

I use a point system for my grading procedures:

Tests (about 100 points each):  Tests are given at the end of each unit and will be based upon the quizzes and homework that led up to them.  Tests comprise about 60% of the total grade.

Quizzes (about 50 points each): Quizzes are given about once a week and are often based on 1-3 topics from the chapter.  Quizzes will comprise about 25% of the total grade.

Homework/Classwork (2 points each):  It will be assigned each night and checked for completion at the beginning of class the next day.  If homework is not completed by 10pm on the day it is assigned, it will be considered late, resulting in a zero for that assignment. It cannot be made up late.  Homework will comprise about 15% of the total grade.

** Homework assignments at the beginning of class the next day. If not completed it
will be a zero.
** If you are absent on the day a graded assignment is due, you will be expected to
hand in the assignment (WITHOUT A REMINDER), the very next day you return to
class.
** If you are absent on the day of a quiz or test, you will be expected to schedule a time
