Ms. Miller's Math 7H Class
Your grade in this class will be based upon your performance on homework, quizzes, tests, learning logs, participation, graded review, and projects (if/when they are given). Your grade will be the percentage of points earned out of the maximum points possible (different every quarter).
To keep track of the grades received in this class, I encourage both the student and the parent(s) to use the Infinite Campus Student/Parent Portal.
Grading will be on a points system:
Homework.................................................. 5 points each (approx. 20 per quarter)
Quizzes....................................................... 10 - 75 points each
Tests.......................................................... 75 - 100 points each
Midterm Exam (December)..................... 100 points
Final Exam (June)..................................... 100 points
*The NYS Math Assessment in May will not be counted for a grade.*
% Grade = Total points earned ÷ Total points possible
Notes will be given almost daily. When you are given a note sheet, it must be filled in with pencil!
Each note sheet will be recorded on the Math 7H Notes ~ Table of Contents and they should be kept, in order, in the Notes section of your 3-ring binder.
Homework will be assigned almost every time you have class.
Homework must be completed in PENCIL!
Homework will be collected/checked daily or may be collected and graded (for example...a review worksheet).
Each student must turn in his/her own independent work. Copying will not be tolerated and all students involved will get a zero for that homework assignment.
A list of answers results in 0 credit for the homework assignment; work must be shown when required.
If you are unable to complete a problem on a homework assignment, make note of the problem and come in early, ask for help during my office hours, or stay after school. DO NOT wait until class time to ask for help.
1st and 2nd Quarter HOMEWORK POLICY: Students will receive a print-out of missing assignments prior to interims & report cards. At interims, students can complete missing assignments for 4 out of 5 points. At report cards, students can complete missing assignments from before interims for 3 out of 5 points and assignments from after interims for 4 out of 5 points.
3rd Quarter HOMEWORK POLICY: Students will receive a print-out of missing assignments prior to the report card only. Students can complete missing assignments for 3 out of 5 points.
4th Quarter HOMEWORK POLICY: Students will not receive any print-outs of missing assignments. If students inquire about assignments on their own, and make up these assignments prior to the interim and/or report card, they will receive 2.5 out of 5 points for that assignment.
If you are absent the day an assignment is due, it is then due the day you come back. The total number of days you are absent will equal the number of days you have to make up MISSED WORK ONLY. After your make up days, the late homework policy begins for any assignment not handed in on time.
Should you miss class (for any reason) it is YOUR responsibility to pick up any necessary worksheets and note-sheets. You will also be responsible for handing in your current homework assignment, getting any notes taken in class, checking the homework calendar, and making up any quizzes or tests. Any homework, quiz, or test not made up within 5 days will result in a 0 grade.
You will receive a homework grade at the end of the quarter. Total number of points depends on the number of homework assignments for the quarter.
Learning Log (composition notebook):
Students will complete learning log entries in class almost daily on either the lesson taught in the previous class or any material already covered in the school year.
Learning Logs will be checked at the end of the quarter and will count towards the participation grade.
Students do not need to make up Learning Log entries for classes they are absent from and the missing entries will not count towards the student's grade.
Learning Logs will be left in the classroom.
Students will be assigned unit specific projects throughout the school year.
More details on the project will be given as they are assigned.
Projects will count as 30 - 100 points.
Quizzes may be announced or unannounced.
Tests will be given at the end of each unit. Tests will always be announced so students can prepare in advance.
Anything and everything discussed in class, on note sheets, and in learning logs can appear on the quiz/test.
Individuals will complete quizzes/tests. Any observable suspicious behavior will result in serious consequences for all students involved.
If you use pen on a quiz/test you will automatically lose 10 points on your quiz/test!
