Consequences for inappropriate behaviors will include warning, removal of privileges, parent
contact, detention, administration involvement (referral).
Materials Needed
3-ring binder. Please put a few pages of loose-leaf lined paper and graph paper at back of
Sharpened pencils and erasers & some multicolored pens and pencils for daily use.
Calculator (TI-84 or TI-84 Plus) highly recommended.
Homework – assigned daily, graded for accuracy and completion.(2 pts each)
Classwork/group activities – These are a combination of formative and summative
assignments (5- 20 points)
Quizzes – assigned for each chapter. (~20 points each)
Unit Tests - Cover 3 to five chapters. (~100 points each)
Projects – One assigned per quarter. (50 – 100 points)
Your nine-week grade will be averaged as follows: Total points earned divided by total points
If you are absent the day an assignment is due, it must be turned in the day you return. If
you are out for 1 class, you’ll have 1 class to make up that day’s HW. If you are out 2 or
more classes, contact me as soon as possible to develop a make-up schedule.
If you miss a quiz or test, you must make arrangements to make-it up with Mrs. Kennedy
within two days. Failure to do so will result in a zero. If you miss the Review Day, you
are still required to take the quiz/test on time. So, please be prepared.
It is your responsibility to get the work you missed and make arrangements for quiz, Mrs.
Kennedy will not remind you!
