  • Class expectations

    Posted by:
    • The following are some of the class expectations:

      • All school rules apply.
      • You are responsible for your own education. I will teach you but you have to do the learning. Nobody else can.
      • Be respectful! This is a vital expectation in this class. Be respectful of yourself and others. No copping out!
      • Bring all of your equipment daily unless otherwise told. These include the following:
        • Pencils and/or pens
        • Spiral notebook or composition book dedicated to this class.
        • Straight edge (optional)
        • Protractor (optional)
        • Compass (optional)
        • Textbook
        • Calculator
          • You will need a scientific calculator. I recommend a TI-83.
          • Cell phones may be used for daily work but not tests.
      • Take Cornell notes in class. The notes you take are part of your grade.
      • The school district encourages the use of personal electronics in education endeavors. What that means in my class is the following:
        • You many use them when directed to look up information or as a calculator.
        • You many not use them for anything else.
        • There can be no electronics other than a normal calculator used during assessments.
      • Don’t give up! Many of the problems in geometry can several minutes to figure out. Many students look at a problem for less then 30 seconds prior throwing in the towel.
      • You may have food and drink in my class as long as there is no mess left behind. If I find garbage after a class, that class will not be allowed to eat or drink in my class for a week. It does not matter if the garbage is yours or not.
        • No eating peanuts in our class. We have several students this year that are extremely allergic to them.

  • Attendance

    Posted by:

    Regular attendance is critical for your success in this class. Everyday we will cover new material and each day builds upon the previous day’s work. If your absence is excused in the attendance office, you can make up missed work for full credit. If your absence is unexcused, then make up work is not available. Exceptions for exceptional situations will be considered. If you think you qualify please come see me.

    Being here on time is very important. According to new school policy, if you miss five minutes of class at any point, you have to be marked absent. Be here on time.

  • Homework

    Posted by:

    Practice is critical to retaining information and is an important part of this class. We have found that students generally score within 5% of their homework percentage of their homework. So if a student is doing 75% of their homework, they will generally score between 70% and 80% on their tests. While they are exceptions they are rare.

     

    While I do accept late work until the last week of the semester, it is only valued at 60%. It is important to turn the work in on time.

  • Grading

    Posted by:

    There will be quizzes throughout each unit and the dates will be listed on the calendars and on the board. Those dates are flexible and may change without notice but will generally be within a day or two. Some quizzes will allow notes but most will not. I encourage students to come in days before after school for extra support if they need it. If you fail a quiz, you will have the opportunity to retake it the following week.

     

    There will be a midterm and a final for each semester. All combined, your quizzes and your finals will be 80% of your grade.
