    Practice

    Practice & Classwork:  In math, it is very important to practice! Practice will be assigned most nights. Assignments should be written down in each student agenda and will be available on the website. All assignments on the calendar are listed on the day they were assigned and are due the following class period. Missed homework may be recorded in the Phoenix grade book, which is accessible to parents. Class work and homework must be kept in your binder.

     

    Assessments

    Formative Assessments are designed to measure and monitor student learning and are not weighted toward student grading. 

     

    Summative Assessments may include the following:

     

    ·         Quizzes:  Quizzes will have a variety of question types.  Students will be expected to answer questions that require detailed and thoughtful explanation. Students must show all work in order to receive full credit.

     

    ·         Tests and Projects:  Students will always be provided with a study guide or review materials prior to taking a test. Tests and projects must be taken or submitted on their defined due date, unless the student has an excused absence and s/he makes other arrangements with their teacher.

     

    Absences: Students are responsible to make up any work they have missed in a timely manner. Assignments, class notes, and answer keys will be posted regularly on the website.
