    Grading Criteria

    Every assignment is worth a certain amount of points. Tests will be worth the most, followed by quizzes, weekly worksheet, and homework.

    Weekly Worksheets

    • Weekly Worksheets are available every Friday, and are due the following Friday, giving you one full week to complete them
    • Each weekly worksheet consists of 10 questions, worth 1-point each, for a total of 10 points.
    • They are graded on a non-partial credit scale, meaning each problem is either marked right or wrong.
    • Students have the opportunity to come in during the current marking period to receive partial credit back for problems originally marked incorrect.
    • In order to gain credit back, you must complete the corrections with me after school.


    • We quiz after 1-2 Investigation. (At least 1 quiz per book.) We do not review for quizzes, so please stay on top of your notes. You will be given 1-2 days notice before a quiz.


    • Expect a test following each book.
    • All tests are CUMULATIVE, meaning not only will you be tested on the current book, but prior books as well. So when you are studying, it is a good idea to look back at old summaries and assessments.
