Grades will be determined on a total point system
Homework will count toward 10% of the grade
Tests, quizzes, and projects which can be referred to as summatives as they offer a summary of what the student has learned, will count for 90% of the grade.
Students will also be given formative assignments which are not counted toward the grade but do provide information as to how the student is doing in the class. They are checked over and given a value to determine progress in the unit and a student maybe brought in for extra assistance if they show low scores on formatives.
