Final Exam=15%

Engagement, Notes & Homework=10%

100-92.5= A 92.4-85.5=A-

88.4-86.5=B+ 86.4-82.5=B 82.4-79.5= B-

79.4-77.5=C+ 77.4-67.5=C 67.4-64.5= C-

3) NOTES & ENGAGEMENT: Each student must keep a neat and legible notebook. This can be done in a spiral notebook or electronically. It should contain class notes, problems assigned in class, all homework, grade printouts, and handouts or downloads. It is expected that each student will come to class with his/her own notebook, paper, pencils, textbook, calculator and COMPLETED HOMEWORK. While homework will not be collected and graded separately, repeated lack of preparation and/or lower quiz scores will cause a student to be required to turn in completed assignments. Every assignment missing after a student is required to turn them in will lower the total grade 1 %-age point.

On the day BEFORE a chapter test (and before the final exam), a single, hand-written summary of the chapter is to be turned in. Each section covered should be present and summarized with the main idea of the section, new formulas, and vocabulary. Similar tot he Chapter Summary Sheet, on the day BEFORE the Final Exam, A summary of the semester is to be turned in. Each Chapter covered should be present and summarized with the main idea of the Chapters, formulas, and vocabulary. Examples are allowed.

There MAY be some online quizzes through Canvas assigned during the year to review issues for the PSAT and SAT. Quizzes will be timed and three tries will be allowed on each.

Each student is also expected to be mentally prepared to discuss and present logical solutions to the homework problems both orally and on the board. Students will be chosen at random for board work.
