Tests and Quizzes
Tests and quizzes will be administered at appropriate times with ample notice to the student. Short quizzes may be given on any day but full period exams will be given on Thursday, which the math test day. The course concludes with a final exam.
Projects will be assigned throughout the school year based on the current topic of study. Time will be allotted for most projects to be started in class; however, many projects will require time outside of school.
Homework is assigned regularly and will be collected and graded at random. Homework is assigned a 30 point test grade. Each missing homework assignment will result in a 3 point deduction from the homework test grade. Late homework will not be accepted.
