Welcome to Pre-Algebra and Algebra 1 Keystone.
My expectations, materials needed and grading policies are the same for all of my math classes.
A 5-subject notebook is required for class. This will be used for taking notes, bell ringer questions and homework assignments.
Scientific Calculator (i.e.Texas Instruments TI-30XIIS)
Grading is based upon the following percent:
Class Participation: 10%
Tests: There will be three tests given per quarter. They will be announced with sufficient time for preparation.
Quizzes: The quizzes will be both announced and unannounced and given regularly during the quarter. The lowest quiz grade will be dropped each quarter.
Homework: Homework will be assigned on a regular basis. Homework is to be completed and handed in on time. Homework is a very important part of math and is made to be an extension of the day's lesson. Students will be responsible for making up any missed homework due to an absence.
Class Participation: Class participation is also an important part of math. Complete understanding and participation affect the subject matter being taught. Class work, board work, behavior and following directions are all factors of the class participation grade.
****ALL TESTS AND QUIZZES ARE TO BE DONE IN PENCIL - Pen will result in a 5 point deduction.****
