Will be at a minimum two full practice exams on the weekend. Grading Scale: 90 –100% A 80 – 89.9% B 70 – 79.9% C 60 –69.9% D Below 60% F Grades are weighted as follows: 70% from tests & quizzes 20% from labs 10% from homework Material needed: o Graphing calculator (TI83 or higher) o Pencil/Pen o o Spiral Notebook, 3-ring Notebook / Folder o Expo Markers (multicolor) Labs: Write ups or questions over lab will be due following each lab. Cheating: This action will result in a zero on the assignment and could also result in a referral to your Principal Class procedures: One day is allowed for make-up work from an excused absence Retests are not given. Tests are designed to allow plenty of time to finish during given time. Extra time is not given, unless some special need is known.

Late homework is 70% if within the unit. Absences: Assignments are always given, so it is your responsibility to get all assignments missed. Feel free to e-mail me at any time.
