Grading and Homework Policy

Homework ( 30% of the total grade):

Homework assignment grades will vary depending on the assignment.  The majority of the   assignments will be given 5 points. The 5 points are given primarily for effort and completion, not necessarily accuracy for every problem.

Homework must be neat and complete ( answers only will not be accepted as complete).  Homework is generally given daily.

Please feel free to help your child understand the homework.  Try to avoid telling them the answers, without them trying on their own.

The first part of class is devoted to review and checking homework assignments.  All questions regarding the homework will be answered during this time.  Students may also set up a special time if extra help is needed.

Please note if a student misses a day, it is their responsibility to find out what they missed and complete it within the next two following days.  All homework assignments are posted in the room.

 

Tests and Quizzes ( 60% of the total grade):

Quizzes are given periodically during each unit.  They are generally based on the previous week's work.  Tests are given after a unit is completed.  Projects are given throughout the year.

Participation and Organization ( 10% of the grade):

Studies have shown that the more one participates in an activity the more they learn and the more they enjoy what they are doing.  I expect if a student is listening they will be able to ask questions if necessary or answer questions.
