Grades will be based on the average of the total points of the following categories. All categories are worth the same.
Tests/Quizzes - all tests/quizzes need to be signed. The grade will be recorded on their grade signature sheet and it will be collected as a homework grade every quarter.
Tests and projects will be given at the end of every unit. Quizzes can be expected at least once a week. Oral work and projects will be given for each chapter.
Homework can be expected at least 3 nights a week. I try not to assign homework on weekends unless it is absolutely necessary. Homework is due the day after it is assigned unless otherwise stated. Late assignments will be penalized unless legally absent. If you are absent from school you are still responsible for getting the homework done. This is the only time that late homework is accepted but, you must hand it in to me within 3 days of your return to school. Students are responsible for all work covered during classes when absent for any reason (music lessons, field trips, counseling, etc.). Please see me in the morning if you have a special problem. No late work will be accepted more than a week after the due date without a conference with me.
