ATTENDENCE

ANY missed work is your responsibility to find out, retrieve, or possibly make-up at the teacher’s convenience.  Absences must be excused in order to receive credit for work that you miss. Attendance in all discussions and activities is strongly advised since you can’t truly understand if you’re not here to obtain the information. 

 

GRADING

Grades will be calculated by dividing the points earned by the total points possible for each nine weeks grading period.  Unit tests will be worth 100-200 points.  All other assignments will be assigned a point value based on the difficulty and length of the assignment. Points will be deducted on any work turned in late.
