## Ms. Keith's math class guidelines

Students will be graded in the following 3 categories

1)

**HOMEWORK**- each assignment will be worth 3 points. If homework is submitted late, 1 pt. will be deducted each day. (This will account for

**10%**of a student’s grade)

2)

**MINOR ASSESSMENTS**- class work, warm-ups, notebook checks, class activities, quizzes, exit tickets (this section will account for

**40%**of a student’s grade)

3)

**MAJOR ASSESSMENTS**- tests and projects

(this section will account for

**50%**of a student’s grade)

MATH BINDER

Your binder must be with you everyday. You should have the following sections (IN THIS ORDER):

-Class Information

-Warm-Ups

-Mini-lessons

-Practice

-Assessments

LATE WORK POLICY

Late homework will be accepted up to 5 days after the due date with a penalty of 0.5 pt. deduction each day.

Late work will be accepted up to

**5**days after the due date with a penalty of a 10% point deduction per day. For example, if you submit a 20 point assignment 1 day late, you will only be able to earn 18 points (10% of 20 = 2 pts. deducted). After 2 days, you will only be able to earn 16 points, 3 days 14 points, 4 days, 12 points, and 5 days 10 points. After 5 days, no late work will be accepted and it will be recorded as a zero. If you have late work, place it in your period’s bin as soon as you enter the classroom.

GRADE CALCULATION

I use the point system to calculate grades. The number of points will depend on the type of assignment. For example: daily homework is worth 2 points and bi-weekly warm ups 0.5 point per day. Grades can be calculated by dividing earned points by total possible points

GRADE = points earned / total points

Ex: If you earn 120 points for your work out of a total of 135 points

120/135 = .89 = 89% (B)

DANIELS GRADING SCALE

A: 90-100

B: 80 – 89

C: 70 – 79

D: 60 – 69

F: 59 and below

7th GRADE RE-TEST POLICY

1. All students will have the opportunity to re-take

__UNIT TESTS__**one**time, regardless of their original score. Students must complete a

**Parent Notification Form, Test Corrections**, and a

**Cumulative Practice Sheet.**

2. The Re-Test will be comprised of the

**10 most commonly missed**questions from the test.

3. The Re-Test grade will be recorded as the final grade

*even if it is lower than the original grade.*
