4 This is our official class website. It contains assignments, important dates, and other class related information. There is also a link to Engrade. I update Engrade regularly - check it.

5 Supplies Please bring the following to class everyday: Something to write with Your QUADRILLE Notebook A graphing calculator Your textbook A positive attitude

6 HOMEWORK Worth 15% of your total grade Show ALL work Use standard mathematical notation Late work is excepted for excused absences only, I NEED TO SEE THE NOTE – not just the main office Neatness counts Partial credit is given for incomplete on-time assignments

7 Assessments Quizzes, tests, projects, semester exams Worth 60% of your total grade Follow the AP format Different versions NO EXTENDED TEST TIME Missing tests are very serious. If you are going to be absent excused for a test, you must either make arrangements prior to a planned absence to make up test. For an unplanned absence, you will take the test immediately upon return to school and I (as well as the main office) must be notified by a doctor, parent or guardian that your absence was excused.

8 Classwork Worth 20% of your total grade YOU have complete control of this. Take notes, write observations and summaries – your grade will appreciate it.

9 Particiaption Worth 5% of your total grade This is like a bonus I am rewarding you for doing what you are supposed to do Come to class on time, participate, have a positive attitude, you get all your credit. Don’t do this – lose your credit.
