Homework and Participation____________________________________________________PreAP PreAlgebra and 8th PreAlgebra: Homework:I believe that homework is a necessary tool to learn each of the concepts that students will learn this year. Homework will be assigned on a regular basis and the student will be expected to have the assignment completed the next day. I rarely assign homework on the day of a test or a major quiz. I grade homework on a completion scale most of the time. The scale is as follows: 5 points (100%) – homework is complete and all work is shown, 4 points (80%) almost completely done with all work shown OR all completed with some work shown, 3.5 points (70%) late work that is complete and all work shown, 3 points (60%) half completed with all work shown. Other times I will collect the homework and grade it for correctness, these points will depend upon the number of problems assigned as each problem will be worth one point. I give zeros to students who do not turn in the assignment the day it is due.PreAP Algebra 1 Homework:I believe that homework is a necessary tool to learn each of the concepts that students will learn this year. Homework will be assigned on a regular basis and the student will be expected to have the assignment completed the next day. I rarely assign homework on the day of a test or a major quiz. I grade homework on a completion and accuracy scale. The scale is as follows: 10 points (100%) – homework is complete, at least 70% accurate and all work is shown, if less than 70% is accurate the student will receive the actual grade they received and can redo the assignment within two weeks for full points back. The student will also receive a 7 (70%) for any late assignment that is complete and at least 70% accurate. It will be up to the student to grade all missing or late assignments before the assignment is turned into the teacher. Other times I will collect the homework and grade it for correctness, these points will depend upon the number of problems assigned as each problem will be worth one point. I give zeros to students who do not turn in the assignment the day it is due.
Participation Grade:
I will give a weekly participation grade worth 10 points.
