Grades: PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THE KENNEDY CATHOLIC HS GRADE PERCENTAGES ARE
DIFFFERENT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON. Your Kennedy grade will be listed on your high
school transcript and the grade calculated for any high school functions, ex. National Honor Society. If you sign up to take
the UW Credits, the University of Washington grade will be sent as your grade for the UW credits ONLY. It is likely that
your UW Credit grade will be lower than your Kennedy grade, especially since the Final Exam is worth 40% (vs. 25%).
JFK NetCatholic will be updated on a biweekly basis. Your class grade is accumulated throughout the year. Both the
Kennedy grading scale and the UW grading scale are located on the back of these sheets. University of Washington grades
are based on the 4.0 system.
Exams: Three midterm exams will be given. Students, who are absent, may have the option of taking the make-up midterm
either during class, lunch or after school. The student, who has missed a midterm exam, should make it a priority to makeup the exam as soon as possible.
THE YEAR END FINAL EXAM WILL BE GIVEN ON ONE DAY ONLY (NO MAKE-UP WILL BE
ALLOWED). This year, the final exam is scheduled for Saturday June _____ .
(This date is the most likely date – a change may occur depending on the UW schedule)
Quizzes: Given periodically, about every 3 or 4 weeks. A student, who is absent for a quiz, is expected to make up the quiz
as soon as possible, unless you have made another arrangement with Mr. Dyer.
Homework & Worksheets: Every problem from the textbook will be assigned. See the attached syllabus for a schedule of
assignments and when they are due. There will be time in class to work collaboratively with fellow students and myself.
This class and the assignments focus on the process of solving problems. The assignments will be graded based on your
ability to demonstrate (in a written form) your mastery of the problem solving process. No late assignments are accepted
after the midterm covering those assignments.
Notebook (Kennedy grade ONLY): Twice during the year, notebooks will be collected and graded based on the following
criteria:
Organization – Place all warmups, assignments, and notes together in the order in which they occur.
Completeness – Nothing is missing, including PAGES ONE & TWO.
Preparedness: Your notebook check grade will be reduced if you are late to class, forget your calculator, or if you do not
bring your notebook binder to class.
Cheating: Cheating or directly copying from another person's work will result in a grade of zero. Parental contact will
follow any further violations.
EXTRA HELP: Extra help will be made available for anyone who asks for it.
