TEKS for Course
Student objectives are listed in the calendar/outline section of this document by six weeks. A
complete list and description of the TEKS for Algebra 2 (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) can
be found at http://www.tea.state.tx.us/rules/tac/chapter111/ch111c.html#111.32.
Grading Determination
Major Grades:
60%
Daily Grades:
30%
Homework:
10%
There will be at least three major grades and six minor grades each six weeks.
Late Work Procedure
Late homework not presented at the time of the initial checking but turned in before the test will be
accepted for late with no more than a 30% deduction off the original credit. Homework packets not
presented at the time of initial checking will be accepted up to three days late with a penalty of 10%
per day deducted for each day late.
Daily assignments, enrichment packets, and projects will be can be turned in one day late for 10% off,
2 days late for 20% off, and 3 days late for 30% off. No credit will be given after 3 days late.
Unit Test Retesting Procedure
In lieu of retaking an entire test, students will have an opportunity to earn points back on any UNIT
test if the unit test grade is 69 or lower. Points will be earned back through test corrections. Students
must complete test corrections in presence of a teacher in order to earn points back. Test corrections
will be graded and students can earn back up to half of the original points deducted; however, the
student’s final grade on the unit test cannot exceed a 70.
In addition, the lowest unit test grade will be dropped at the end of each 6-weeks if it is to the
student’s advantage (it will improve their overall 6-weeks average).
Projects
Projects will be assigned periodically. Project grades will be recorded as daily grades.
