Grades are not weighted.
Each assignment is worth a certain number of points, which makes up a
portion of the points possible per quarter.
There is no participation
grade, but participation shows effort, which in turn helps boost your
Assignments: May seem frequent
and may seem difficult, but ARE NOT if you stay on top of your deadlines
(make sure to budget your time wisely) and pay attention to/ follow
directions. Use your calendars, the webpage and ask questions.
Assignments are not an all or
nothing proposition. Obviously the more you complete and the better
the quality the more points you will receive. However, homework is
not taken after I check it, so showing me what you have done will get you
at least partial credit. For example, if a study guide is worth 10
points and you have half completed, show me half and you will get 5
points. Also, projects are accepted late, but at 10% loss per day.
So you can still get points, but you should get it in as soon as possible.
I will not take excuses about
your work. You are responsible for completing things well and on
time. If you lose points because you choose not to do that, then
take the lost points and do better next time. It is better to lose
some points now and learn the lesson, than to get fired from your job
