85% of each six-weeks grade will be based on the following weights: 

            Homework:     1 grade

            Quizzes:       2 grades

            Tests:       3 grades

 Homework is due two days after it is assigned.  Late work not pre-approved will have thirty points deducted. 

The remaining 15% will be from the comprehensive six-weeks exam.

Twenty five percent of each semester grade comes from the six-weeks grades.  The remaining 25% will be from the comprehensive semester exam.


Quizzes are open-note and open book and will be unannounced.  Tests will be closed book and closed-note.  The full class period will be allotted to tests.  A final exam will be given.  All makeup quizzes and tests must be taken within one school day (not class period) of the student’s return.  It is the student’s responsibility to schedule makeup work with the instructor. 


An average of these grades will determine the final grade. 

            A: 90 – 100%

            B:  80-89%

            C:  70-79%

            D: 60-69%

            F:  59% or lower


ATTENDANCE POLICY:  You are expected to attend every class.  If you are going to miss a class, pick up the assignment ahead of time.  The assignment will be due the next class period.  Excused absences due to illness will require that assignments missed are due the next class period.  Assignments due on the date of the absence are due the first class period the student returns.
