*Assignments are not given letter grades, but are worth points (10 points). Students will not receive full credit on an assignment for the following reasons: not fully completing an assignment, not following directions, or
not showing work when instructed by the teacher. How much is taken off varies with each assignment based on how long the assignment is and what types of problems are given.
*Some assignments will be done online through an app called Big Ideas on Clever. These assignments are self-graded online based on how many problems are correct once they are submitted by students. These assignments will be given points (10 points maximum) based on their online score
*Will be given time in class to complete. However, there occasionally may be some instances when no class time is given for assignments.
*Need to be done in pencil. If done in pen, no credit will be given.
*No calculators are allowed to complete assignments unless told otherwise.
*Assignments will be given 3 to 4 times a week and will always be due the next time the class meets unless told otherwise.
*Occasionally there might be assignments given over the weekend.
*There will be some instances throughout the year where students will use a website www.ixl.com to complete assignments. Students will be given log in information for this website during the first couple weeks of school. When students use this website for an assignment, they will be working on a specific math skill to get points. Each time students get a correct answer they will receive some points. If they get an answer wrong, they will lose points. To get full credit for the assignment (8 points), students need to get 80 points. If they receive 100 points (the maximum amount) they will get 2 extra credit points. They can use their phone, tablet, or computer to do this. If they use a phone or tablet, I strongly suggest they download the IXL app. If there is a problem accessing the internet outside of school, they may come in the morning before school to R1 to use an iPad. This will be explained in detail to the students.
*An assignment is considered late if it is not turned in when the teacher asks for it, at the end of the period, or later in the day, it is considered late.
*Late work will only be accepted during the time we are covering the chapter that is associated with that work. For example, while covering Chapter 2 students may turn in late work for that chapter only. Once the test has been given for that chapter no assignments for Chapter 2 will be accepted.
*1st Semester->-> Work that is turned in late can still receive full credit if all the work is done and all work is shown
*2nd Semester->Work that is turned in late will only be given a maximum of half credit (50%) if all the work is done and all work is shown.
