Grading System

All grades will be based on exercises and projects completed in class.  Concepts will be taught through daily exercises.  At various times throughout the year, the students will be assigned projects in which they will have the opportunity to apply what they have learned. All assignments are worth 100 points.  Every student is expected to make a 100!

Make-up Work Policy

When students are absent, they should complete their missing assignments within a week of the absence for full credit.  All work will be completed in Room 308. The room will be open everyday in the mornings, both lunches, and after school. Cheating will not be tolerated–zeros will be given on those assignments.
