•  This is how students' grades are calculated:

    Chapter Tests--45%: There are two tests each marking period.

    Formative Assessments--45%: This consists of quiz grades, classwork, exit tickets, etc.
     
    Homework--10%: Written homework is only graded for completion, not how many problems are right or wrong. For computer based assignments, students must score at least a 70% to get full credit.
     
     
    Recovery Grades:  
     
    My goal as a math teacher is for each student to demonstrate understanding of the material. If a student scores under a 70% on a quiz, they will have the opportunity to retake it and pull their grade up to a 70%. I will pull them into Power Period for re-teaching and additional practice. They are also expected to study outside of class so that they are more prepared than they were originally. Recovery quizzes are only given after school. I will send a note home notifying the parents.
