     Advanced Course Semester Grade Calculations
    High school level math courses will be assigned SEMESTER GRADES.  Q1 report cards represent the grade earned during quarter 1 like a mid-semester progress report.  However, Q2 report cards will display a student's semester long grade found by averaging quarter 1 and quarter 2 grades.  The actual Q2 percentage will not be reported on any document.  The same holds true in the spring.  Q3 report cards show Q3 percentage, but Q4 report cards report the entire second semester grade (Q3 and Q4 average).  High schools take the 2 semester grades for transfer credit.
     
    Advanced Course Requirements

    This is an Advanced Class. It will have a rigorous pace and work load.

    You need to maintain an 80% or higher.

    If your grade falls below 80%, you need to seek help and actively work to raise your grade. If even after extra help, you struggle in the course, we may discuss a schedule change to better accommodate an appropriate level of math class.

     

    Retake Policy

    Test retakes in the high school course are not allowed. Please be prepared on the material and seek help before an assessment. If the whole class scores poorly, the whole class will go back to reteach and retake on the material. Individual retakes will be considered on a case-by-case basis for extenuating circumstances only in the fall semester, please email me if you have any concerns.

    The high school courses do not offer retake opportunites if taken at the high school.

     

    Absence Policy

    ·         When you are absent, it is your responsibility to obtain the information and assignments you missed. Assignments missed will be entered in the gradebook as 0 Missing, and when a student has completed, graded, and turned in the absent work the grade will be updated

    ·         Check my website, the board in my classroom, and handouts file folder for any worksheets and notes.  Copy down any notes you missed, completed the section from the book we worked on, and schedule a time for quiz or test make ups if necessary. 

    ·         You have 2 school days for each day absent to complete missed work (homework, as well as notes, warm-ups, class work, quizzes & tests, too!)  After this time period, missed work becomes late.

    Late Work Policy

    • Work needs to be completed on time and will be checked at the start of each class. 

    • Work completed late will be accepted for half credit up until the test on the content, late work due to an excused absence needs to be graded and turned in then may recieve the full credit it would have earned

    • Absolutely no late work for any reason will be accepted after the unit on which the work was assigned.

    How do I raise my grade?

    Take notes, do your homework, & ask questions and participate while grading and in class discussions.

    • Ask for extra help

    • There is no extra credit in this course, so do your best on every assignment!

    • Please seek help before assessments, not after them
