    Grading Criteria

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

    Homework: (Posted daily on Genesis)

    • Homework is assigned just about every day, including Friday.
    • Homework is graded based on completion, so every problem MUST be attempted. If you do not know how to approach a problem, use your summary. If this doesn't help, write out an explanation as to what you did not understand.
    • Homework is due when you walk into class.

    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 at any time during the 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 either during Academic Support or after-school


    • We quiz after 1-2 Investigation. (Atleast 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.
    • This should not be a problem if you are doing the extra 15 minutes of review you're expected to do each night.
