• Mrs. Brese – Honors Geometry and Honors Algebra I

     

     ASSIGNMENTS & GRADING:

    • Class lessons and assignments will be posted in Canvas. Students can find the list of assignment in the Canvas Calendar or their TO DO list.

    • It is the student’s responsibility for turning in assignments, completed and on time.

    • When absent, it is the responsibility of the student to complete missing assignments and submit them in the allotted, additional time.

      • If a student misses a test, arrangement will be made for making up the test at an agreed upon date and time.

    • Missing work will be recorded as a zero (if student was present when assigned and collected). Once the assignment is submitted, I will grade and change the zero to the earned score.

    • Cheating: Parents will be contacted, and you will receive a ZERO!!!

     

     

    Semester grades will be calculated by:

    Classwork/Homework = 40%

    Quizzes/Tests = 50%

    Semester Test = 10%

    (I DO NOT GIVE EXTRA CREDIT)

    • Do not start gathering your belongings before the timer rings

    • Do not get up and leave when the school bell rings. I will be the one to dismiss you.
