Welcome Class! Math Applications Room #200 Lancaster High School Mr. Justin Rysz 740-681-7500 x6583 [email protected] Classroom Attendance We will follow school policy and The Student Code of Conduct. You expect our best, and we expect your best. Be an active participant and willing to try. Being on time and prepared for class is a great start. Daily Materials Pencil or Pen Notebook for notes and homework 3-ring binder for returned work and any other permanent worksheets Loose-leaf paper for work to be turn in on Textbook: Expect to bring it with a book cover Graphing Calculator (Ti-83 plus) Grading this is not an inclusive list Classwork Homework Announced and Pop Quizzes Announced Test Quarterly Projects Budget project Semester and Final Exams The budget project will be worth 25% of your quarter grade. The completion and correctness of weekly budget sheets will be worth 20% and the savings worksheet will be worth 5% The other 75% of your grade will come from the other assignments which will not be weighted and is just graded on a point system. Homework Policy Some homework assignments will be collected and graded on correctness, others homework will be graded on completion. Homework will be passed forward and collected at the begging of class, unless mentioned otherwise. Homework will be graded on completion. Each homework will be worth 4 points. i.e. If 100% of homework is done, 4 points 75% of homework is done, 3 points 50% of homework is done, 2 points 25% of homework is done, 1 point No homework, no grade Everyday each homework assignment is late, 1 point will be deducted. If you did not have your homework, you MUST fill out an excuse form or you WILL receive a before or after school classroom detention. I will keep track of each homework assignment that is collected and once you have 10 (ten), 4-point homework in a row, you will receive one homework pass. You can use the homework pass for a 4 on any homework assignment or 4 bonus points on any test or quiz. Absences All missing work and assignments must be turned in the first day you get back. You will be required to turn in the work and the assignments from the day that you were gone AND the work due from the first day back. Example: If you went to school on Monday and were absent on Tuesday. You are required to turn in Monday’s homework on Wednesday and required to turn in Tuesday’s AND Wednesday’s homework on Thursday. Be prepared to take test and quizzes on your first day back. Mr. Rysz will make any exception. An unexcused absence will be treated like you were in the class that day and did not do anything. Remember this is Mr. Rysz’s classroom, so I have the right and the power to make any and all changes whenever I like to the rules. 2 Largest Reason For Failure 1) Attendance 2) Homework Just by coming to class and doing your homework will save you from any major trouble.
