Prealgebra - Year 3 GRADING POLICY My expectation is that all assignments are completed on time. Multiple opportunities will be given for students to show mastery of the standards, by student request and through completion of previous missing formative assignments, as required by the teacher. In myStudent, the following codes will be used: X: Exempt M: Missing I: Incomplete 0: A zero is the grade DR: Dropped CIP: Collected, In Progress NG: Not graded ABSENTEE POLICY 2016-2017 YES, WE DID SOMETHING IMPORTANT WHILE YOU WERE ABSENT. Excused absences guarantee students the right to make up any and all assignments assigned on the day[s] of absence at full credit. The student is responsible for asking the teacher(s) for assignments and make-up tests within two (2) class meetings with the teacher. The teacher(s) shall specify a reasonable period of time for completion of make-up work. In no case shall the time be less than one full calendar day for each day missed. Work due to be turned in on the day of the absence will be turned in upon return and be given full credit. The principal or designee shall have the authority to modify these conditions with a confirmed hardship. Students who have been assigned out-of-school suspension (OSS) may make up all missed assignments and tests for full credit. (Student Code of Conduct page 9) RETAKE TEST POLICY To complete a test retake, completion of ALL correlating unit assignments (as noted on myStudent) and test corrections must be submitted. Test corrections that show lack of proficiency towards the standard(s) may result in need for further remediation before retesting. All retakes will be administered during the students assigned lunch after the approval of the instructor. The student will receive the better of the two scores. CLASS RESOURCES Students and parents should be signed up for our class Remind account. This is used to communicate daily assignments, events, and reminders. Its also a virtual homework help tool. The class code can be found on the front of this syllabi. Students and parents should also have access to myStudent to keep track of grades and assignments. Most handouts for assignments will be uploaded to myStudent and available to print from home if needed, if not found within the student workbook. Our class will have a myLearning page where students can access resources used in class that correlates with our textbook. Textbook Info: Illustrative Mathematics, Open Up. Open lunch is available daily to students to work on assignments, makeup work and/or get help on class material. Please note that students must attempt the assignment as 30 minutes is not feasible at times for student practice/understanding. DO NOT CUT!! DO NOT CUT!! DO NOT CUT!! DO NOT CUT!! UNITS Unit 1: Transformational and Measurement Geometry Unit 2: Linear Equations Unit 3: Graphing Linear Equations and Systems Unit 4: Functions Unit 5: Statistics Unit 6: Real Numbers, Exponents and Scientific Notation Unit 7: Pythagorean Theorem and Volume Subject Area Guides that list an overview for each class and show the interconnection of the Middle Years Programme and the Florida Standards are posted on the PVMS website under the IB MYP tab.
